Market Opportunity

Since 2010, the population of Florida –


has grown by more than 2.7 million residents, some 14.6%

making it home to over 21.5 million people

the 3rd most populous state after California and Texas

…and Florida remains one of the fastest growing  regions in the U.S.

Over the last five years, Florida locales have accounted for nine of the top ten and 12 of the  top twenty fastest growing locations in the United States:

Florida’s robust  growth is projected  to continue . . .

Between 2021 and 2026, Florida  population growth is expected to  average 309,867 net new residents  per year (849 per day).


Reasons why:


Florida is one of just eight states without a state-level personal income tax

The cost of living in Florida is about 2% below the national average

Companies are relocating to Florida, creating employment opportunities

. . . creating strong demand in the residential ownership and  rental markets . . .

Over the past five years Florida home values have increased by nearly 69%; in 2021, median prices were up 23.9% year over year

Florida markets account for five of the top ten fastest-rising rental markets in the country, and Jacksonville is accelerating

While the rate of these increases will likely diminish.

There are many properties that have not adjusted to the market, and therefore contain untapped value that can be unlocked through strategic purchases and balanced improvements.
