Looking to Buy Real Estate in Clearwater Florida | Clearwater Beach | Sand Key

“Foreign Nationals looking to purchase 2nd home and investment properties in Florida need to look no further than the availability for Short Term Rental Permits if they want to have the ability to rent out their   condominium, single family  house, or townhouse when they are not using it much like they would find in a Condo-Hotel/Condotel.

Many cities have created a licensure process for property owners and developers that will allow a property to be rented more than once within a year and with rental commitments/leases as short as a few days to a few months.

For instance, in Clearwater Florida, all short term rentals must be registered and licensed with the city.  The purpose of licensure is to ensure a safe community and to enforce minimum housing and development standards.  The property is also required to maintain an occupational license, thus paying additional taxes to the city.

The information about the Clearwater Florida code is available at or directly by following this link -o-> LINK.
