The March Rick Singh Report is available online! http://www.ocpafl.org/PressRoom/RickSinghReport.aspx
As we continue to address housing affordability in Central Florida, it is worth noting that prices for single family homes continue to rise and the inventory for homes at more modest prices is shrinking. Nearly half of all home sales in 2018 were in the $200K - $350K range, and this statistic is consistent with similar activity for 2017. But let's take a look at the movement in more expensive homes and in lower-priced homes.
Today Rick Singh attended the grand opening of the East Orange District Park Recreation Center which was hosted by Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings , District 5 Commissioner Emily Bonilla, and District 4 Commissioner Maribel Gomez Cordero. Also pictured are Bobby Beagles, Park Advisory Board Member, and Manila Clough, an artist who created nine original nature mosaics for the new facility. Congratulations to the residents of East Orange County on your beautiful new Recreation Center!

This community park and playground in Baldwin Park sits comfortably amidst quiet streets, walking paths, and lovely residences. Parks like this are frequent in New Urbanism communities like Baldwin Park. "New Urbanism" refers to large-scale, master-planned communities designed with a focus on creating small town sense of community through creating integrated commercial and residential spaces, ample parks and public spaces, and well-connected grids of streets modeled after pre-automobile cities where walking was the predominant form of transportation.

A wonderful testimonial from another satisfied OCPA customer. We are proud to have such a professional staff and to offer exceptional customer service always!
Here's some good news for the Orange County real estate market - the number of distressed sales has dropped dramatically since 2015. By definition, a "distressed sale" is one in which the sale is made under unfavorable circumstances such as a foreclosure, or the seller may have had to sell the property at a deep discount just to complete the transaction. Distressed sales in Orange County are at a record low - and down 77% since 2015.
