If you’re a landlord in Florida, you belong to a club with lots of members because so many Americans live in rental properties today. Miami is one of the top ten U.S. metro areas with the largest share of renters: nearly 50 percent of residents rent instead of own in this happening city. West Palm Beach is one of the ten metro areas with the smallest share of renters but nonetheless, nearly a third rent.
Renting out your Florida property offers a slew of benefits like tax deductions and steady income. It’s also flexible. Should you tire of the landlord gig, sell the property. Being a landlord can be famously difficult as well and experienced landlords consistently mention property maintenance as a top drawback.
