Buying a vacation condo near Orlando/Kissimmee

Jump to last reply

We are Canadians who go to Disney World fairly regularly each year and we plan to retire in Florida or possibly Arizona. We have to research a lot more on the retirement aspect. We do NOT have a lot of money for a second home, but we are considering buying a vacation home, possibly a condo with an hour drive of Disney World that can be rented out while we're not there.

Since we're just starting out investigating if this is something we truly want to do or not, does anyone here have any pros and cons we should be aware of?

I'm a bit worried about the monthly condo fees, $500/m and I'm sure some are way more than that, seems excessive to me but perhaps it's worth it?

Finally, Is it realistic to have a budget of under $50,000 for a condo?
