What should you be looking for when shopping for residential property? When you’re searching for property in Florida, keep a few of these tips in mind. Orchid Island Realty has been dispensing invaluable real estate advice for years. Exclusively selling homes in Orchid Island, they help homebuyers find their perfect home at Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club. It’s secluded location, peaceful atmosphere, and direct oceanfront access make it a big draw to many homebuyers. The Beach Club, Golf Club and other amenities are second to none. When asked about the major influencing factor that Florida homebuyers should search for, Scott Oberlink, head broker for Orchid Island Realty had one thing to say.

“One of the top three questions we’re asked by prospective buyers is, ‘How much are the taxes?'” Oberlink said. “It is an easily answered question, usually followed by, “Is that all?” But that’s not all.”

He knows that homebuyers are coming to Florida for many different reasons. “When considering relocating or retirement, buyers are searching for more than just better weather, beautiful homes, and lifestyle options. Many are looking for relief from some of their bills as well. That’s exactly what we offer here in Orchid Island.” Indeed, Florida’s other tax laws make the state a popular place for retirees, too.

“We enjoy some of the lowest county taxes in the coastal regions of the state, and the Town of Orchid lowered taxes this year,” Oberlink continued. “Florida has no state income tax, which means Social Security retirement benefits, pension income, and income from an IRA or 401(k) are all untaxed. Florida has no estate or inheritance tax either.” News like that makes areas like Orchid Island seem even more appealing.

Members of Orchid Island are even luckier still to call this amazing place home. This private community is committed to providing a level of service that stands out from the rest. Golfing here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer, 18 hole course is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation. The recently renovated beach club serves as a gathering place for families and friends to reunite. Private club events and holidays are held in the dining room, and families enjoy fun in the sun along the Atlantic Ocean. Residents even have their choice of beach to enjoy, with the club hosting over a mile of private beachfront.
