Located in Orange County, Orlando, Florida is known – first and foremost – as the home to Disney World. However, as the 67th largest city in the country, Orlando’s real estate appeal isn’t limited to Mickey Mouse. While theme park tourism has made Orlando one of the most visited cities in the world, its perennial sunshine, gorgeous lakes, vibrant nightlife, and booming economy has elevated Orlando to one of the hottest real estate investments in the United States.
Nearby Windermere shares Orlando’s appeal, while adding a more suburban feel. As of 2013, Windermere featured 784 households with a population of roughly 2,800 people. Boasting a median family income of $105,737, Windermere has thrived with the pristine upkeep of local parks, including popular destinations like Central Park, Butler Bay (Windermere Recreation Center), Lake Bessie Lakefront, and Town Square Park.
Both Orlando and Windermere are within convenient driving distance of:
- Disney World
- Sea World
- Universal Studios
- Ripley’s Believe It or Not
- Wonder Works
Locals also enjoy cheering on the Orlando Magic and taking quick trips to the beach – recreational activities that all contribute to the area’s mass appeal to renters and buyers alike.
