BlogKMC-copy Increased Investment Activity in Florida Hotel Market

Investors continue to find attractive investment opportunities across the state, with Hotels changing hands at an increased rate over the last 18 months. Transaction activity appears healthier across Florida than other US regions currently. Transactions are buoyed by the state continuing a trend of consistent growth in its major markets.

Central Florida has more than 500 hotel properties with more than 125,000 hotel rooms but this still does not match the demand as industry is benefitting from regional attractions that draw a growing number of annual visitors. 2019 saw Orlando’s $70 billion tourism market attracted a record 75 million visitors.
