With a population of 285,713, 109,468 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $228,889, Orlando real estate prices are well above average cost compared to national prices.
Large apartment complexes or high rise apartments are the single most common housing type in Orlando, accounting for 49.02% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Orlando include single-family detached homes ( 32.58%), row houses and other attached homes ( 9.17%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 9.05%). This particular housing mix is relatively uncommon and characteristic of cities that are compact and walkable, and which often have a lively downtown.
Orlando is dominated by renter-occupied one, two, or no bedrooms apartments. 65.29% of Orlando's dwellings are rentals.
There is a lot of housing in Orlando built from 1970 to 1999 so parts of town may have that "Brady Bunch" look of homes popular in the '70s and early '80s, although some of these houses were built up through the early '90s as well. There is also a lot of housing in Orlando built between 2000 and later ( 28.30%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 20.32%). There's also some housing in Orlando built before 1939 ( 3.11%).
Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Orlando. Fully 14.39% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Orlando homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Orlando real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied. Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
In the last 10 years, Orlando has experienced some of the highest home appreciation rates of any community in the nation. Orlando real estate appreciated 43.67% over the last ten years, which is an average annual home appreciation rate of 3.69%, putting Orlando in the top 20% nationally for real estate appreciation. If you are a home buyer or real estate investor, Orlando definitely has a track record of being one of the best long term real estate investments in America through the last ten years.
