Today marks the third anniversary of the horrific events at the PULSE nightclub on June 12, 2016. The community is bonded together in reverence, love, and support of those lost and affected by the tragedy. #OrlandoUnited
How did College Park become one of Orange County's most sought-after neighborhoods? The area has grown from a small rural town to one of the most desirable areas in a matter of decades. Now considered the ‘trendy’ part of town, the brick paved roads and college themed street names elicit images of the past rarely seen in modern Orlando. The area has balanced new development with the old – landmarks like the historic Dubsdread Country Club, founded in 1923, and Princeton Eleme...  
Thought leadership from Rick Singh in today's Orlando Sentinel sheds light on Orange County's historic growth in property values.
As the baby boomer generation retires and downsizes, their McMansions are flooding the market. Millennials don't seem to have the interest or the pocket book to pick up the high-priced homes, leaving sellers spinning their wheels in an otherwise flourishing market. What do you think? Are these mega-mansions worth the investment? Or would you pass for a less flashy option? Let us know in the comments!
The May edition of the Rick Singh Report is now available online! http://www.ocpafl.org/PressRoom/RickSinghReport.aspx  
Orange County is one-of-a-kind! Theme parks, agricultural parcels, timeshares, residential units, and other factors add to its complexity. OCPA has added EagleView's Pictometry system to our tool kit in an effort to adapt to the county's ever-changing landscape.
Thank you for the kind words, Representative Darren Soto! We appreciate your support.
Thanks for the coverage The Apopka Voice!
As the real estate market in Orange County continues to tighten, some worry that foreign investors could beat local buyers with better offers. What do you think? Let us know in the comments. Orange County real estate is popular with foreign investors ... especially for purchasers from Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2018, almost $23 billion in Florida residential real estate was purchased by foreign investors, with almost $2.1 billion invested in the Metro-Orlando market....
hanks for the coverage Orlando Sentinel!
This just in - OCPA is excited to announce that Orange County's market value has reached an all-time high. With near-record new construction and historically high property values, Orange County’s total market value now tops $206.1 billion for the first time. Rising values are great news for Orange County residents whose communities will benefit from the additional tax revenue for years to come. The resulting increase in revenue can help fund schools, infrastructure, and parks in the area.

#OCPAHomeTip #5 is one all Floridians know too well, but often put off...hurricane preparedness. Of course, hurricane preparation takes maintenance of Florida homes to a new level of importance. New construction must adhere to local building codes, and older homes should be brought up to code. Keeping trees on your property trimmed will reduce the chance for flying branches
