The investment environment in Central Florida

The investment environment in Central Florida is looking positive and the FL Dept. of Highways is working to improve the major highways including US Hwy. 27, State Road 60, I-95 and I-75 and continuing to move forward with portions of the Central Polk Parkway. This parkway is intended to help reduce local and 4 lane traffic. I have clients that should see considerable appreciation of their property and location because of this.

The Bartow-Fort Meade, FL area is fortunate to have available industrial property and the population to support a work force and the Central Florida Development Council welcomes inquiries and will bend over backward to help a business wanting to locate in Florida.

Investors considering the corridor from Lake Wales to I-4 will find Polk County and the smaller cities of Winter Haven, Dundee, Lake Hamilton, Haines City, etc. most helpful and encouraging a new business.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is committed to creating an environment where small businesses can succeed. The agency offers a variety of programs that provide loans, tax credits and technical assistance to help Florida’s small businesses flourish. These services are designed to help entrepreneurs and small business owners invest in their local communities by creating opportunities and jobs for Florida residents. The Sunshine State’s low taxes, coupled with its business-friendly policies, make it an ideal location for investors to create, grow and develop businesses. The Black Business Loan Program, Florida’s Micro-finance Program and the State Small Business Credit Initiative are just some of the programs the agency provides to stimulate small businesses statewide. To learn more information about the vast array of services offered at the agency, please visit DEO’s webpage at

Buying acreage, citrus, lakefront, commercial or industrial property requires good information and contacts to permit a buyer to maximize their purchase and look back on it as a good investment. If you are interested in investing in Florida, this office would appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance to you.
