Kissimmee is commonly known as Florida's resort town. This is because it attracts a large number of tourists all year round, as it is very close to the Disney, Universal and Sea World parks. It is estimated that there are more than 20,000 vacation rental homes there.

The newest developments in the region are already designed to meet the needs of vacation homes. This is the case with the Storey Lake condominium by Lennar, which has an exclusive resort for guests in the leisure area. The villas available in new condominiums are excellent for those who want to make a real estate investment in the region and earn extra income from renting.

Situated in Osceola County, along with the city of Saint Cloud, Kissimmee's location also has the advantage of a wide variety of shops. There are many stores and restaurant chains that are a favorite with Americans and tourists alike. The city is also home to a number of other attractions that draw even more attention from travelers.

Curiously, in its early days, the town was known for being the place where the first bars appeared to accommodate the ranchers who traveled on horseback during the cowboy era. And its reputation for hospitality continues to this day.


Why invest in Kissimmee?

The location is one of the best, considering that the Disney parks are in the area. This is one of the factors that attracts a lot of tourists, which means that the financial return is almost guaranteed for those who invest in real estate in the city. What's more, you can still find very nice houses in the area at an affordable price - starting at 260 thousand dollars. 

The city is known for being an area full of vacation homes. As well as being able to rent through traditional channels, Kissimmee is one of the few cities in the greater Orlando area where vacation rentals through the Airbnb app are legal. Currently, the occupancy rate on this site is 68%, according to Mashvisor's website. It is also estimated that newer homes have an occupancy rate of over 75%.

Being a seasonal area doesn't mean that you can't buy a house in this city to live in. It just means that it has some disadvantages compared to other areas with a more specific profile for housing, such as the constant presence of tourists. Kissimmee has A-level public schools, as well as Johnson University Florida and Osceola Technical College.
