Home ownership is the great American dream, and all over the country, people have looked for the best place to live—whether it’s on their own, or as a family—and then looked into buying some property. In this regard, Orlando is a fantastic place to live, especially for families. The mild weather makes it a pleasant environment all year round, and the large number of theme parks makes it a place that will keep younger family members occupied for their entire childhood. Everybody wants to go to Disneyland at least once in their lives, but being able to visit Disney World, Seaworld and Universal Studios whenever there’s spare time? It’s a child’s dream come true.
That’s why both the young and young at heart flock to Orlando. In addition to the many places for families to enjoy themselves, the city itself has a vibrant pace, with the nightlife, culture and many professional opportunities for people in all career tracks. Orlando, as with many cities in the USA, proves that America isn’t just about New York and Los Angeles, and it’s one of many great cities in the country waiting for someone to find a new home.
Buying A Home
The variety of Orlando homes is huge. Whether you’re looking for a traditional detached, or want a condo or townhouse, you’ll find it in Orlando. One distinct feature Orlando has compared to other cities is the abundance of lakes, making it possible for many people to enjoy the view of a waterfront home. You may be looking for something with a more natural, rural touch, or you may just want a safe, suburb with access to good schools, or perhaps you want a condo in the heart of downtown where everything happens. You’ll find all these possibilities in Orlando.
The most important goal in finding a home is narrowing down your needs. If you’re just starting out in your career, your living requirements will be very different from someone with a family. Try to balance the budget you have for a home with what kind of lifestyle you want to live, and this will help considerably in narrowing down possible locations, at which point your real estate agent can provide you with the best assessments from the many choices you will have.
The market for Orlando homes for sale are full of investment opportunities. Thanks the incredibly robust tourism industry of the city’s theme parks, there’s an industry of rentals not just for long term tenants, but for short terms stays of families looking to avoid a prolonged hotel experience. As with many other cities in America, foreign investors will also appreciate the stability of Orlando’s real estate market, and its investment opportunities. Of course, buying a home to resell after it appreciates is a smart business decision, but there are many other investment opportunities in Orlando besides the traditional ones.
Selling A Home
Home selling in America has been healthy in recent years, and the trend continues in Orlando. The important thing to consider if you’re selling your home is a willingness to spend a bit more to ensure a higher sale price. Homes that have been renovated, or older homes that have been rehabilitated to ensure they are up to modern building and safety codes will be much more appealing to those seeking a new place to live, or those looking for an investment opportunity. For many buyers, the luxury of having to worry about one thing less—whether it’s a new roof, an asbestos free home, or a modern electrical system is a premium that many are willing to pay if it means they don’t have to address the problem themselves. Be willing to spend a bit more money so you can ask for more at the bargaining table.
