I'm interested in Florida as well. Specifically the Keys and perhaps most likely, Key Largo.

Having no experience in this, I find myself spinning my wheels, trying to find some way to research areas of high demand and manageable cost. I can find lots of comps on what properties in the area cost to rent. What I can't get a handle on is occupancy on places, how long the season is (do they still rent in September at the peak of the 'cane season?), and the like. Any advice on how to research an area's vacation rental market, or advice on screening realtors for one that's going to be straight with you?

It's not a cheap market, even now that it's down. I need some feel for what kind of cash flow might be possible. Can't figure out how to get it though!!!

Thanks for any advice,
