It’s true that real estate prices in sunny Florida, USA, are steadily rising. In fact, they have increased for 33 months in a row, according to the latest August 2014 data from Florida Realtors - but there are still plenty of bargains to be had.

For those on a tight budget, superb holiday homes, buy-to-let properties and retirement real estate in the heart of the Sunshine State can still be snapped-up for under US$100,000 (£62,200) – and in some cases for around half as much!

All the value-for-money properties listed by Feltrim are within easy reach of Florida’s famous theme parks, including Disney, Universal, SeaWorld and Legoland, golf courses and sought-after coastal resorts.
