There is much more to Orlando
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.
Before i continue Here is a list of the communities in Orlando Florida. This list will have all of the homes for sale in the respective communities. If you are looking for a home for sale in Dr Phillips Click here to visit the Dr Phillips Page.
Orlando Housing By Districts
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.
NOTE-To See The Districts you must use the Satellite View not just the map view.
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 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 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 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-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.
Gated Communities In Orlando
If you watched the gated communities video above you now know more than most people will ever need to know. If you have decided that a gated community is right for you then you are in luck. Florida has many of them. Below is a list of communities in Orlando that are gated. Here is a link to gated communities in Orlando.
Freshwater Lakes In Orlando Florida
This is a list of all of the named lakes in Orlando Florida. Placed in alphabetical order by the actual lake name. If there is official data available for the lake I will give it to you. Click on the name of the lake to see all homes described in the MLS as Lakefront on that lake. This data is usually good but it is only as good as the listing agent is accurate and thorough. If your lake has no lakefront homes then conduct a search to the side of this page. The Listing agents may have left off the name of the lake or called it lakefront or lakeview by mistake.The acreage I give will be surface area of the lake.For those outside of the US there are 640 acres in a square mile and there are 4047 square meters in an acre.
All Lakefront Homes in Orlando Will Be Shown Be Below List.
Those are the lakes in Orlando. If you want to know more about lakefront properties in Orlando or any of the surrounding areas contact me. I would be glad to help you even if you are months away from making a purchase. Most people start looking 6 months before they actually buy. Many of our buyers are from outside of the area and we do everything for them with modern video communications. Thank you for visiting Orlando's best real estate site.
