I've seen a few houses listed in Eastwood as being "un-incorporated". Can someone tell me what that means vs. other houses listed in the same area?

The East Orlando communities are not incorporated into Orlando and there is really no difference to other listings except that this agent has included more of the legal description. Also, the area is served by the sheriff's department rather than the Orlando City Police department. You are part of Orlando due to the postal address but the East Orlando neighborhoods have not officially been incorporated into the City. There are over 13 unincorporated areas surrounding Orlando.

East Orlando Neighborhood History:
This sprawling unincorporated area east of the City of Orlando has been one of the fastest growing bedroom communities in the Orlando metropolitan area.

East Orlando officially got its start with Waterford Lakes. Actually, it began with its predecessor Huckleberry Fields, but the real popularity of the bedroom communities of East Orlando didn’t start in earnest until Waterford Lakes came along. Waterford Lakes in turn spawned Waterford Chase and Waterford Trails. In quick succession, the golf communities of Eastwood and Stoneybrook sprang up. Cypress Springs also got its start around the same time, soon followed by Andover Lakes/Andover Cay, Fieldstream, Cypress Bend, Lake Kehoe Reserve, and smaller subdivisions sprinkled in between.
