Orange County Florida

Orange County FL lies within Florida's central business hub and is part of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area.  Orlando, Florida's 5th largest city and is Orange County's county seat.

Real Estate

Orange County is experiencing high demand for real estate, making a home purchase here a wise investment.  There are a substantial number of incorporated and unincorporated cities, towns and communities to choose from.

The recent foreclosure crisis has caused a drastic reduction in Florida's real estate prices, leaving the market open for people who want to invest in a Central Florida home before real estate values inevitably climb back up.

Economy

Orange County is home to the largest and fastest growing businesses, companies and corporations in the country.  This includes, of course, Disney – Central Florida's largest employer – but also such organizations as Central Florida Research Park, Lockheed-Martin, Siemens, Universal Studios with the Harry Potter attraction, SeaWorld and the Orlando Regional Medical Center and many, many more. Orlando is home to the largest Concentration of Convention Centers in the Country and anually holds the PGA Merchandise Show.

Central Florida's growing population and demand for real estate has also spawned many more job opportunities in the outlying areas of Orange County, farther away from Orlando and its environs.  The entire county is full of opportunities for lucrative employment in a variety of industries.

Attractions

Orange County holds an amazing number of Florida attractions.  They are so varied and complex, that it could take a lifetime of living in the area to fully experience them all – and even then, you would probably have some unexplored places!

The "Number One" attraction is, of course, Walt Disney World Resort, the world's largest and most visited of its kind.  Theme parks, water parks, golf courses… it would be hard to find an attraction that's NOT in the resort!  Most people don't get the chance for a vacation that's long enough to at least see a glimpse of this incredible resort.  Obviously Orange County home owners have plenty of opportunities!

A number of other popular attractions include Sea World, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, MGM, Epcot, Wet ‘N' Wild, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and some of the best restaurants and resorts in America. 

Parks and Recreation

The climate of Central Florida makes outdoor sports extremely popular.  Orange County Parks and Recreation operates 95 parks, nature preserves and recreation complexes in the county area. 

Real estate on water and adjoining parks and nature areas is abundantly available.  For the Orange County nature lover, waterfront real estate or homes near Orange County parkland might be an ideal compromise between the country and the city.
