Steadily Increasing Home Prices in Orlando Are Still Well Below the Peak of the Bubble

When the U.S. economy is doing well, the property value in Orlando also does well. According to an article published by Forbes earlier this year, Orlando took the number-one spot on the list of cities to buy property in 2018. Over the past two years, Orlando has seen steady job and population growth, which have contributed to the rise in property value. Local Market Monitor predicts that prices will continue to increase, and will increase to 35% by 2021. In this sense, it’s never been a better time to buy property in Mickey Mouse’s stomping grounds.

According to a report by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, Orlando’s median home price rose 6% this March compared to the same time in 2017. World Property Journal recently published statistics illustrating the effects of low inventory and high demand on Orlando’s housing market. With a market heavily driven by tourism, Orlando is home to luxurious properties at fair prices that will only become more valuable as time passes. Check out these amazing homes and properties that all feature incredible value and an amazing opportunity.
