Villa Property Companies


Buying a villa in Florida - the rosy picture

In most major villa holiday magazines and at overseas property exhibitions you will see ads and meet many of the above (i.e. villa property companies!).  They WANT you to buy a villa and will paint you a rosy picture, bring the dream to life - the typical salesman approach, after all this is how they make their money.  Once you have committed to purchasing there is no going back - well not without financial loss.  If you need to rent the home out to finance your purchase, whether you succeed or fail at this is not of concern to them - once you have bought your villa they will have made their money (from a realtor commission) and you will be left to 'get on with it'.  Beforehand, they will have introduced you to a mortgage broker or financial consultant (more commission).  Post purchase, some MAY introduce you to tax accountants (you will have to submit an annual tax return to the US Inland Revenue Services) provide an introduction to a property management company (more commission) - or they may have their own (another way to make money from you). 

Guaranteed bookings?  Be very aware!

Be extremely wary of promises of guaranteed bookings.  Take the recent events of 9/11.  Villa owners saw drastic declines in bookings following this atrocity.  The only way to receive a guaranteed number of bookings is by 'selling' weeks to large tour operators.  You will know from your own experience of using tour operators that they keep costs to a minimum to make the 'package' attractive to the traveller.  To enable them to do this they have to purchase the various elements at a vastly reduced cost.  This means purchasing your rental weeks at a vastly reduced cost!  The income you will receive will probably barely cover your  mortgage payments (assuming you have a mortgage) let alone cover your management company fees and the property running costs (e.g. utilities, air conditioning maintenance, garden maintenance, irrigation maintenance, home owner association fees, pool maintenance, interior and exterior pest control, telephone, cable TV etc. to name but some).  Utility costs are not cheap - electricity and water in Florida are both extremely expensive.
