Orlando Fl Homes For Sale  

Why are people searching for homes for sale in Orlando Florida? Plenty of reasons. Here are just a few.

  • Employment Opportunities-The two largest employers are Disney and the Orange County School District. Both with over 53,000 employees. However many companies have chosen to make Orlando their home. Its' great weather, access to major highways, thriving International Airport and both the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico are easily accessible for shipping needs.
  • The Education System- All levels of education in the Orlando area are simply outstanding. Some of the best schools are located in Windermere and Dr Phillips. However there are many great options in this area. Lake Nona is rapidly becoming a hot spot of growth and has a good education system. There are also no shortages of colleges or trade schools in Orlando. 
  • The Weather- Fun Sun fact, over 95% of the year Orlando has sunshine. So whether you are walking from your car to your school or your jog I promise you will not freeze. Just keep a small umbrella for those afternoon showers and you will be awesome !
  • Recreation and Culture- Orlando is famous nationwide for it's diversity. We do not all agree but we all get along. We base it on mutual respect for fellow human beings. As far as recreation, wow. What more could you possibly want? We have professional and amateur everything. Not to mention every possible touristy activity you could ever be interested in. If you think of something new, start a business !
  • You knew I was going to go there, The Parks. People flock from around the world to them. We ourselves take our family once or twice a year. The best part about the parks to locals is the tourist keep the city moving forward. Modernization and local businesses are fueled by those tourist dollars.Prime examples are The Mall at Millenia and The Florida Mall or the Florida Premium outlet Mall.

Orlando Fl Homes For Sale  

Orlando does have some great malls. However probably the best thing about Orlando is its' culture and its' weather. The winters are mild and the summers are hot. Luckily Orlando has so many lakes and water parks to cool off in. The lakes in the area are beautiful, plentiful and clean. Many of the communities in Orlando feature the lakes by building beautiful walking/exercise trails around them. I know of several which have exercise trails around lakes complete with various types of exercise stations all surrounded by the community's homes many of which are for sale..

Orlando Fl Homes For Sale By District  

Orlando is not a perfectly round or square city. The City of Orlando has a Northern and a Southeastern section. The Southeastern section is basically the Orlando International Airport and the communities that surround it. The Northern section is where you will find the downtown area and the more historic Orlando. The First Mall in Orlando for example was probably the West Oaks Mall in North East Orlando. The Orlando Executive Airport is just South of that mall.

Because I know, most people start home searches in new cities with a map. And I also know that people who want to move into other parts of a town know the names of districts of towns I am going to do something different. I will give you some links below to districts of Orlando. Districts are sections of towns that may have one or more subdivisions in them. When you look at Google maps and start to zoom in you will see that the names of areas of a town will start showing up. These areas are names that local residents use. Knowing these areas is part of becoming the local area expert you will sound like later.Think of it as secret knowledge that can help empower you to choose you home.


To help people who are not from the area know where these districts are I will discuss them by NE,NW,SE and SW Orlando Florida. The links will take you to pages further explaining the districts and show you the homes for sale in those districts. Buying a home for sale is a large investment. This step may help you buy once instead of wishing you had bought somewhere else. If you are a investment buyer from out of the area then this is absolutely the way to go.


The Northeastern Orlando FL Homes For Sale Section of Orlando is made up of the following Districts. If you are interested in another one contact me and I will send it to you. These are the ones in Orlando.Some of the others you may see on the map are actually not in Orlando.


The Northwestern Orlando Fl Homes For Sale A lot of Northwestern Orlando is commercial. So I chose the Districts with the most homes for sale. Keep in mind that these are Orlando. All the subdivisions that have homes sell in the last 6 months are listed above.


Southeastern Orlando Fl Homes For Sale This section reminds me of the movie Limitless. There are so many awesome districts in Southern Orlando. The East and the West side will all be great. The East side probably has more homes. The West side is the most famous and has more million dollar homes than anywhere in Orlando. First let's go through the Eastern side where because of the gaps in Orlando I include some small cities. 


Southwestern Orlando FL Homes For Sale Windermere and Dr Phillips will be this list. There are close to 200 community pages on those links. Windermere and Dr Phillips are the clear winners in Southwestern Orlando Or if for some reason you prefer other areas the search bar on the left is one f the fastest in the area. I do not require registry to use the search.
