ORLANDO, FL, USA, March 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fort Lauderdale-based BTI Partners, a real estate development and investment firm, is celebrating the fifth anniversary of The Grove Resort & Water Park, an award-winning vacation home resort near Walt Disney World®.
Since opening its first tower in 2017, BTI Partners has completed and delivered a significant number of the condo-hotel residences at The Grove. In just five years, the sprawling resort located six miles from Disney World has closed on over 800 of its luxury two and three-bedroom vacation condos. Since the onset of the pandemic, the demand for vacation homes in Orlando has skyrocketed, fueling a buying spree at The Grove. Filled with state-of-the-art amenities, the 106-acre resort has set the standard for a new generation of vacation homes.
“We are proud to reflect on how far our property, and the Orlando tourism market, has come as we celebrate the fifth anniversary of The Grove,” said Justine Assal MBE, BTI Partner’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “For the last five years, The Grove Resort & Water Park’s success has ignited a development boom west of Disney World and attracted private investment from all over the world. We are grateful to all our buyers who believed in us from the very beginning. Today, they can see the results in increased hospitality metrics and sales performance.”
The important milestone comes at a time when Orlando’s tourism and hospitality industries are out-performing pre-Covid metrics and housing inventory continues to decrease. Orange County reported a record-breaking tourist tax collection in December 2021. At $28.2 million, it was the highest December on record and the third-highest collection in the tax’s history. Case in point, The Grove’s occupancy rate is dramatically outperforming its competitors according to STR reports. At the same time, the Orlando Realtor Association reported that housing inventory continued to drop, decreasing by 8% from December 2021 to January 2022, for a total of 2,379 homes on the market in January.
According to the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, the median home sales price in January hit a new all-time high increasing 21.8% from January 2021, and the median condominium sale price increased 29% in the same time period. Metro Orlando home sales are expected to increase 8.8% year-over-year, according to the National Association of Realtors. That percentage could get higher as international buyers once again flock to Florida to invest in real estate as a way to protect and grow their capital. Orlando is the second-largest destination for international buyers looking for vacation and rental properties, second to Miami.
BTI Partners recently commenced construction of the fourth phase of The Grove, The Terraces at The Grove Resort Orlando to meet the increase in demand. Phase four will consist of 160 large studios and one-bedroom units located within the development of The Grove Resort & Water Park.
The Grove Resort & Water Park’s short-term rental program is professionally managed by Paramount Hospitality Management (PHM), an established veteran of the hospitality industry. Operating as a hands-on, boutique management company, PHM focuses on the condo hotel segment. PHM has a global reputation and proven track record of consistently producing sound financial results for their hotels and owners year after year.
The sprawling resort recently earned the prestigious USA & Americas Property Awards for Mixed-Use Development Florida, USA; Best Leisure Development Florida, USA; Highly Commended Hotel USA; and International Four-Star Hotel 2019-2020. In addition, The Grove earned BTI Partners the regional award for the “Best in Americas for Leisure Development” category.
