Looking for a snowbird rental in Florida -Not sure where to start

7 Replies

Hi BP Community,

I am also looking for a snowbird rental. My family can use it off season and hopefully the snowbirds will cover most of the mortgage for the year (wishful thinking). Looking for at least a 2 bedroom unit.  Prefer water views and walking distance to the beach.  Close to restaurants, shopping etc will be nice.  Where do I start?

Thank you Tyler.  That's easier said than done.  There are so many great areas to choose from.  I don't want it too far north and it is cooler in the winter months so closer south is what I was thinking.  Any suggestions?

I am still looking for a snowbird rental in Florida.  I heard that in around Clearwater is worth a look.  Water is warm on that side.  Looking to rent it out most of the year.  Like the idea of a 3 month Canadian renter for the whole winter.  Can you recommend any developments that would allow long term rental, have reasonable HOAs and is not necessarily an over 55 community?  I am in no rush :)

Thank you for that info.  Ideally I am looking for a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with water views (preferably). I would like to rent it when I am not there.  Location fairly close to dining, shopping etc.
