Wow you can expect a different answer from each of us. ( haha). Lake Nona. With the Medical city being built I would say that in 10yrs it will be enormous and a very good place to be.
Hope this helps.

Winter Park/Baldwin Park will continue to be the best areas of town as far as location (close to everything), low crime rate and the best schools in town. The homes around Winter Park (32789, 32803 zip code areas) have many homes that are being purchased and then renovated and are now gorgeous! There are many parks, bike trails, and sports fields. (within walking distance to many homes) Shopping and downtown are a short drive away and I repeat, the schools in this area are "A" rated and will always be the best in the area...both private and public schools in this area are great and will definitely attract many people. The homes in 32803 (especially the ones close to Winter Park) are holding their value more so than homes in some of the other areas because it is a desirable area and there are million dollar and half million dollar homes within a short distance.

Hi Judith,

It depends on the type of property you are looking for, a resale in 10 years will depend on the economy and the desirability of the location your home is in. As you can see below there are many great areas that have the desirability, however it depends on your speed of life and the type of property you desire.

Let me know how I can assist further.
I grew up in the Orlando area.

I agree with Rick in that the area off Narcoosee Rd. is going to see the most growth in the next 10 years because the new medical school and Burnham Institute will create demand for housing in this area. There's also some old faithful areas that have always been good. While the Narcossee Rd. area is more of a speculative buy, Dr. Phillips, Windermere, Winter Park, and Lake Mary have always done really well for appreciation compared to the rest of Orlando. Winter Park tends to have more older homes but new homes can be found a Baldwin Park and Windsong. Orwin Manor is my favorite neighborhood for older homes in Winter Park. Alaqua Lakes in Lake Mary is a good place to start but it is pricey here. In Dr. Phillips and Windermere, there's just a ton of choices for new and older homes. I believe Windermere has recorded the most number of sales of homes that cost more than a million dollars in Central Florida. You can check out my blog to get an idea of Windermere and Dr Phillips. It's a great time to buy with a 10 year time horizon. Some of the best deals can be had in this depressed market.

Hi Judith,
There are a few options, I must agree that the East side of Orlando which includes Waterford Lakes(,Eastwood and Stoneybrook ( both golf communiies) Avalon Park and the Lake Nona Area .Its fast growing with ample shopping and entertainment venues. Also Good Schools and and the new Medical city being built. this includes the Burnham Institute, The UCF School of Medicine and the soon to announced VA Hospital.
Oviedo is also another choice as is Winter Park and Winter Springs.
Really its a choice you may want to consider after you get a good idea of where everything is and how far to work and you worship/school and medical needs are. If you have any questions just let me know. I am here to help.

Hi Judith! I would suggest the east side of Orlando. There are two specific areas that come to mind. Both are within close distance of the UCF or the new medical school/teaching hospital. Take a look at Waterford Lakes area or the Narcoose corridor. If you buy something near the new medical school you will probably get a faster return on your investment. Please let me know if I can help.
