How to Find Short Term Rental Vacation Homes in Orlando

Posted by Team Donovan on Wednesday, August 10th, 2016 at 11:32am.


Are you considering buying a vacation home in Orlando that can be used as a short-term rental? Many holiday travelers find it less expensive to rent properties for a week or more, rather than stay in a hotel. This is particularly true for people who come to the Orlando area to visit the area theme parks. Purchasing a short-term rental property provides you with cash flow which can cover the cost of ownership and maintenance expenses.   

If you wish to purchase a single family home to use as a short-term rental, you will find a variety of homes to choose from next to Disney World in Lake, Polk and Osceola counties. But when it comes to Orange County and the City of Orlando, only condominiums and townhomes can be purchased for use as short-term rentals. Single family homes are zoned as residential and can only be rented for periods longer than six months. 

You can find short-term rental condos for sale at the Blue Heron, Lake Buena Vista Resort and Worldquest in Orange County. These communities are less than 10 minutes from all the fun and adventure at Disney, making them attractive rental properties for holiday travelers.   

Vacation home buyers who live outside of Florida, as well as out of the country, may have a tough time discerning which properties in the Orlando area are zoned for short-term rental. That’s why it pays to consult with real estate experts who specialize in the sale of vacation home properties near Disney.
