Florida has always been one of the best places for investing in real estate. It has 1,350 miles of mesmerizing coastline, sunny weather 24/7, great entertainment options, and millions of real estate properties that are just waiting for a new owner. So, if you want to be that owner, now is the time.

But, let us address the elephant in the room. Namely, since Florida is full of fascinating places, which one should you choose? This is a tough question! The answer, however, depends on you. It depends on what kind of property you are looking for, budget, needs, etc. But, do not worry – whichever place you chose, you will not make a mistake. Each city here is unique in its own way. So, today, we will share with you some of the best places in Florida to invest in real estate hoping that it will help you make your decision.

Fort Lauderdale 

The city of Fort Lauderdale also goes by the name of Boating Capital of Florida. So, if you want to buy a real estate property that besides having a parking spot also has a boating spot, this is the place. The city has many canals running through it – it resembles Venice in a way. However, these canals are not the only ‘watery’ spot here. Fort Lauderdale is also known for being surrounded by the most beautiful coastline with white sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

No wonder why so many people want to invest in a real estate property here – it is perfect for living and for vacationing. However, because all those people want to invest too, be prepared to pay extra. Real estate prices here are generally higher (Fort Lauderdale is a posh place, after all), but since it became so ‘popular’, all the sale prices rose for an astonishing 60%. If you do decide to invest in a property here, be sure to hire a local real estate agent. Trust us, there are many reasons to hire a realtor here – without his/her help, the home search will be impossible. 

Miami Beach 

Miami Beach is something completely different from the previously mentioned Fort Lauderdale. Namely, Fort Lauderdale is the place to buy a villa, mansion, or a big family home – it is a place where you can peacefully (and extravagantly) enjoy all the beauties of a coastline city. Miami Beach, on the other hand, is a place to see and to be seen, a place for partying, shopping, eating in some of the best restaurants in the world, hanging out with celebrities, etc. After all, all those people from around the world come here to vacation for a reason. 

However, before you start packing your bags and calling professional movers to help you make this a great experience, be sure to have enough money in your budget for an investment of this kind. Have in mind that Miami was and it still is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Not only are the real estate prices here extremely high but so are the living costs and the costs of pretty much everything. 


No, this article is not going to mention just those expensive but best places in Florida to invest in real estate. We also prepared some places that are on the more affordable side and that will not break your budget. One of those places is definitely Tampa. Tampa is one of those cities that is just perfect for people from all walks of life. It has everything one may need for a great life – a great beach, delicious food, entertainment spots on every corner, secluded getaways, etc. 

And, the best part is – Tampa is full of different real estate options too. When you hire a local real estate agent, he or she will walk you through, but let us give you some information about Tampa too. Here, you can buy any kind of real estate you have imagined whether a studio apartment or a three-story family home. The prices here are a bit higher than the national average, but they are still significantly lower when compared to other places in Florida. 

Palm Beach 

Palm Beach is a perfect place to invest in real estate if you are into a glamorous lifestyle and, of course, want home with similar touch as well. Here, besides enjoying world-class real estate properties (huge villas equipped with state-of-the-art features), you can also enjoy the neighborhood’s amenities like golf and tennis courses, spas, private pools, gyms, top-notch restaurants and coffee shops, and pretty much anything you can imagine.

Boca Bridges in Boca Raton, for instance, is a luxury community that offers the luxurious real estate options in this exclusive enclave, with access to all of the amenities mentioned above. Thus, if you want to buy a property here, be sure your eyes are wide open. Just like finding your perfect home and finding those perfect movers to relocate you there, for example, you need to know where to look. Only a good real estate agent will be able to help you with that.

St. Augustine 

Last but certainly not the least city on our list of the best places in Florida to invest in real estate is a ‘town’ called St. Augustine. This used to be a small town where only fishermen and artists dwelled. But, in the last couple of years, this small town grew into a relatively large and developed city. The homes you can find here are those old-style houses. So, if you were looking for something modern, this is not a place for you. However, if you were looking for something charming and cute, something with pastel-painted walls, flowers on the windows, tiny streets, vintage cafes and restaurants, that this is definitely the place for you. 

But, be careful when buying a property here for two reasons. As mentioned before, houses here are relatively old, so besides hiring a real agency, be sure to also hire a home inspecting one. A home inspector will examine the house and tell you whether it is safe and move-in ready. Moreover, the property prices here are still one of the cheapest in Florida, but that is slowly starting to change. Because of that, the market is extremely competitive and homes get snatched as soon as they get listed.
