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?
@Sharls Alexander Start by deciding where in Florida you would want to property to be.
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 :)
@Sharls Alexander Clearwater is more strict on renting than neighboring Towns/Cities. Dunedin is very close by and is more lax. It really does depend what your price range is and what are the most important features for the property/location to have.
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.
I live in Clearwater/Dunedin. Hot market, esp Dunedin. Lots of development in both downtowns. Great to time to get in.
Thank you for that info. I will check it out.
