Orlando, FL Housing Market Trends

With 287,442 people, 112,137 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $239,156, 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 48.97% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Orlando include single-family detached homes ( 32.48%), row houses and other attached homes ( 9.11%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 9.10%). Cities with mostly row houses, apartments, and other high density housing types are relatively uncommon, and characteristic of compact cities that frequently have a downtown or other neighborhoods where amenities are within walking distance and a lot of street life can be seen.

People in Orlando primarily live in small (one, two or no bedroom) units, chiefly found in large apartment complexes or high rise apartments. Orlando has a mixture of owner-occupied and renter-occupied housing.

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 ( 31.20%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 18.72%). There's also some housing in Orlando built before 1939 ( 3.02%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Orlando. Fully 15.75% 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.

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.

One very important thing to keep in mind is that these are average appreciation rates for the city. Individual neighborhoods within Orlando differ in their investment potential, sometimes by a great deal. Fortunately, you can use NeighborhoodScout to pinpoint the exact neighborhoods in Orlando - or in any city or town - that have the best track record of real estate appreciation, by the latest quarter, the last year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, or even since 2000, to assist you in making the best Orlando real estate investment or home purchase decisions.
