Would You Like to Own an Island in Florida?

Posted: October 19th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Investor Visas | No Comments »

Realtors in Florida often entice foreign buyers with the opportunity for purchasing a “piece of Florida.”  But now, a lucky buyer has the opportunity to buy a large piece of Florida—a whole island.

Purchasing an island in Florida does not necessarily enable a foreign buyer to live on the island year round.  The foreign owner must qualify for a visa of some type that permits temporary or permanent residence in the U.S.  Fortunately, this particular island that is for sale includes some features that make the purchase well suited for a business-related visa application, such as an E-2 Treaty Investor visa or an EB-5 Investment green card.

The island sale includes several active businesses such as: a water ferry business to taxi residents and visitors to the island, marinas for docking boats, a restaurant and a resort beach club.  It also includes extensive land holdings suitable for residential and commercial development.  The price for all of the assets is in the millions.

News of this island came to me from Steve Alexander, a business broker and mergers and acquisition specialist with Abbex, Inc., in Sarasota.  You can find out more about Abbex, Inc., the island that is for sale, and other business opportunities at  Or, call Steve Alexander at 941.365-3833.
