As with elsewhere across the US, and these pages, property in Kissimmee is currently swamped by foreclosures and short sales. Around £25,000 will get you a low range 3 bedroom home on a development fairly near to the city centre. Pay up to around £90,000 and you’ll be looking at a better quality 4 bedroom home in a good area with double garage and a small piece of land. Look around though because prices vary greatly. Houses similar to this deal at £90,000 can also be found for around £60,000 if you look hard enough! Take a look at http://realestate.yahoo.com/search/Florida/Kissimmee/foreclosures to find more about current foreclosure deals.

Outside of the foreclosure market you can expect to pay a bit more, but for some people that comes with greater peace of mind. The new Encantada development by Park Square Homes is near their popular Emerald Isle development in Kissimmee. Phase 1 is already sold out. Prices start at £200,000 for a 3 or 4 bedroom detached home with private pool.

£365,000 in Kissimmee will buy you a superb luxury 7 bedroom waterfront property with 6 bathrooms, air conditioning and communal pool and tennis courts. It comes fully furnished to a very high standard and is sold with an eye to the buy-to-let investor. The property apparently books very well throughout the year.

So if Kissimmee Florida is not what you are looking for, maybe you should consider some other forms of overseas property investment. Check out other sun spots like Cyprus, Turkey, the Caribbean and Brazil.
