I first recommend Lake Nona! I consider that area triple AAA in the Orlando area as far as investing in rental property. However Maitland is good on prices and very centrally located in Orlando. Are you from out of town?Maitland is also good for young professional. ... more

Hey Maria,

I see no one responded to you. I see your post was from last year but I'm here to help just in case you haven't bought anything yet. Prices have risen since you asked but there are still plenty of homes within that range. ... more

Hi Pute

Couple of reasons why....Not a lot of people are buying condos these days because only a certain set of condos are FHA approved. Meaning, unless you're a cash or conventional buyer (at least 10% down), you're not able to purchase condos. Another reason in general is the price of single family homes or townhomes has dropped so signifcantly, that it's as expensive to purchase a condo with a high home owners fee as it is a home. And, just like the rest of the market, when an area is flooded with distressed sales, it's all about supply and demand-there's too many available, so the prices drop. Right now there are 25 active listings in that community, and while I'm not positive about this (I'll have to contact my preferred lender), I'm pretty sure these places are not able to obtain FHA financing, so the prices need to be obtainable for the cash buyer.

Food for thought, right?

Your Favorite Realtor,
Amanda Sarnes

I think the exact statute number is located at the link below. It is something that should be completed- I am not familiar with the exact statute.
