beINFLorida is Luker & Co.’s exciting new vacation-home brand that serves Florida’s growing vacation home market.
Given our Central Florida locale, we have a unique understanding of vacation real estate and specialize in this niche market. beINFLorida, in conjunction with Luker & Co., can assist in all of your real estate needs — ensuring you maximize not only the enjoyment of the property but also the profit.
Although we specialize in the Central Florida market and all contiguous locations on Florida’s east coast, our statewide network of top-rated agents can assist if you favor another locale.
With beautiful weather, beaches, theme parks, great restaurants, outdoor sports, and tons of shopping options, it is no wonder that Florida attracts more than 122 million visitors each year. Instead of hotels, many tourists rent vacation homes to feel more like a “local” and enjoy the privacy of their very own abode. Owning a vacation property offers you a smart, wealth-generating investment opportunity: especially with the exponential growth Florida has to offer.
As more visitors choose the Sunshine State as their travel destination and seek vacation homes for their stay, there are many opportunities to purchase a vacation rental and benefit from its long-term investment. Best of all, our property managers can oversee all facets of your property — from maintenance to leasing.
We recommend that you consider working with an agent who specializes in international sales.
