Orlando ranked 3rd best Real Estate Market’s by CNN Money

January 4, 2010 by · 3 Comments 

Here is some interesting data put out by the folks at CNN Money. It’s interesting to see that homes have risen 132% since the boom started, and have only come down 40% since the peak. Something to keep an eye on, is that they predict the bottom out to occur in Q2 of 2011! The Central Florida Real Estate Market has held up pretty well compared to most of the country, I anticipate that trend to hold moving forward. It’s definitely a great time to find the right home to flip in this new year! Best of luck!!
