Have you ever wanted to own a piece of the magic in Central Florida or wanted to invest in the growing hub that is Orlando but aren’t quite sure what a title company is or what a short sale is? Well, local ex-pat and property expert Garret Kenny’s new book Buying and Owning Property in Central Florida is the ultimate resource for anyone looking to buy property in this popular area. Written expressly for overseas buyers, Garrett’s book takes you through the entire buying process in Florida-from selecting the right Orlando area, to property selection, to financing, and right through to contracting and renting, showing you what to watch out for each step of the way and how to get ahead. Buyers from overseas have spent billion-plus on more than 250,000 properties in Florida from 2009 to the summer of 2013, according to data from the National Association of Realtors, yet there is very little information out there specifically on the Florida market for the savvy buyer who wants to ensure that they do everything correctly and make the best choices. Garrett’s book addresses that gap in an easily accessible all encompassing guide. This book has all you need to know for buying and owning property in Central Florida.
