Greetings from Florida!

Universal Trust Properties, Inc. is a full service real estate brokerage company, ready to assist you with the purchase, sale, and management of your Florida vacation home. Our staff includes native Floridians as well as transplanted Brits, an unbeatable combination when it comes to understanding and meeting your vacation home investment goals. The Orlando area has homes in every style and price range, and recreation and entertainment to satisfy every lifestyle.

The Destination of Choice: Orlando
As the Theme Park Capital of the world, Orlando is best known for its major attractions - Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World. But savvy travelers have discovered the beautiful beaches, world-class golf courses, fabulous shopping, and great dining choices that keep them coming back again and again.

Central Florida is one of the fastest-growing regions in the nation. It also welcomes over 50 million visitors per year. These factors make home ownership a great investment, one that has consistently produced double-digit equity increases over the past years. And with more visitors learning about the advantages of staying in a beautifully appointed, fully-quipped home instead of a hotel, rental occupancy rates are increasing too. The additional benefit of a rental income stream is available should you choose to rent out your home when you are not here enjoying it yourself. Our property management affiliates offer a variety of options for maintaining and managing your home.

Inspection Visits
We offer our customers inspection visits, which are individually customized to suit your personal requirements. Visits can be quickly and easily arranged from anywhere in the world. Inspection flight prices will vary according to the date of travel, but include free accommodation providing that the terms and conditions of the inspection visit are met. Upon your arrival to Orlando, a representative will meet you at the airport, escort you to your accommodation and will be available to assist you throughout your visit.

Your inspection visit will answer all of your questions regarding the purchasing, financing and management of your Florida home. A typical itinerary includes:

  1. Viewing the leading communities and show homes.
  2. Meeting with our mortgage company to discuss financing options.
  3. Meeting with our interior designer to discuss furnishings and finishes.
  4. Discussing our range of rental programs and property maintenance with our
    management company.

While there is no obligation to purchase a home during your visit, we do emphasize that these visits are specifically designed for those who are seriously considering and are in position to purchase a vacation home when they find a suitable property.
