Florida does not levy a state individual income tax. You do not need to file an income tax return with the state.
The Florida return in TurboTax, Form DR-405, is to report tangible personal property used in connection with a Florida-located business or rental real estate and is printed and mailed to your county property appraiser's office by April 1st.
If you do need to file a DR-405, nothing will print unless assets are transferred or you manually enter assets in the DR-405 worksheet.

"Is it necessary to file form DR-405 (FL Tangible Tax Return) if I purchased a condo in Florida in 2017."
If you use tangible personal property in connection with your rental (e.g., furnishings), then you may have to establish an account with the county property appraiser and then file a Form DR-405 to report that personal property. Regardless, you might want to contact your county property appraiser for further, definitive, information (see link below).
