Eight years later they sell in the $50's and $60's. Not a bad return if you managed to have positive cash flow the last eight years.

I think this varies greatly depending on who your client is. You should adapt slightly to your clients character and how comfortable you feel with each other with regards to being more or less casual. As Mark mentioned, outdoors most people would not see a problem with it in my opinion; but again, let the situation and your client dictate that if you've met before.
If you are meeting for the first time, opt to go without it and establish that first impression with each other. I think the second meeting you will be much better at making the decision and feeling good about it.

Let us know how it goes!

Let me update this. The Grande Palisades went bankrupt and no units were ever closed on. The property was acquired in a foreclosure auction by BTI Partners in 2014. It is scheduled to open as the Grove Resort, a condo-hotel, in the fall of 2016. I've had a tour of the property and have the details on their rental program. If any one would like the details, just click on my picture and contact me. ... more

You can start with my blog on Windermere vs Lake Nona.
And of course it should be pointed out that neither of these communities is actually in Windermere or Lake Nona.
Assuming this is an investor question the answer is Randal Park every day of the week for investment. Sold as couple of the townhouses there this year to investors and they will do very well.

Greetings RP, We as realtors are legally not allowed to comment on safety of certain areas regarding crime,etc.. but are limited to discussing property values,location and things related to real estate purposes. What I can recommend is that you research the Orange or Seminole County Police Department website depending on the area around Goldenrod. You can also speak to some of the neighbors about the neighborhood as well. If you are not presently working with a Realtor and would like to talk more I would love to help. Thanks so much.

You can Contact me by phone or email:

Hi There:

We have sold several condos and single family homes in downtown area (condos seem to be in higher demand). Some of my clients almost doubled their money in matter of three years as downtown with all the interest that it has, had way over average appreciation rate during the past 3 years.

That being said, the appreciation rate is expected to slow down but as always it will remain higher in higher demand areas.

In terms of new construction, any nice area in town that has any room left for construction is now under construction (As I am sure you might have noticed by simply driving through the neighborhoods). Lake Nona is a great example of one the most booming areas in the entire state with huge huge demand and thus tons of new construction,... so that would be almost impossible to avoid unless you are in very established areas where there is not much growth which then translates into lower appreciation. Where there is demand for new construction there is always room for retail homes.

Below is the link to some condos in downtown.,Foreclosure+Bank+Owned,Short+Sale/sort/price+asc/

Hope this helps and feel free to call or text or email me with any questions.

Decent area, but not the greatest as far as rental goes, due to low returns, also, there are better places to make your primary residence.

Full Sail near the Heart of Winter Park, Florida and just a few minutes from the University of Central Florida and Winter Park High School. It's a very popular, private and kinda pricey college specializing in creative careers in the entertainment and media industry.
Those looking to buy or rent "near Full Sail" on the cost-effective side should look EAST of State Road 436-Semoran all the way out to Alafaya Trail/434, north or south for about 3 miles in either direction.

No, of course the price is not $199 a month. You are looking at an auction dot com post and the opening bid is posted and Trulia's automatic programs calculated the payment based on that. ... more

This area is a hot bed for investment properties for several reasons. With the expansion project of Orlando Health, and The Sun Rail being minutes away from this location it will attract a higher price point then most area's located in Downtown Orlando.

If you invest in this area now, you will be more than pleased with the growth of your investment in 3 years time.

All the best

If you are truly interested in the current market value of a property in order to purchase, it's best to work one agent that is committed to you and your home search.
