OCPA Gives Back


This year, OCPA partnered with Harbor House of Central Florida for our 2020 Season of Gratitude and Giving. Our goal was to collect 700 pillows for Harbor House's residents.

Great news! OCPA not only met our goal, but surpassed it! Our team collected 1,033 pillows.

Thank you to all the amazing staff members who helped us achieve this wonderful goal. OCPA is proud to support the Orange County community all year long and is especially grateful for the opportunity to lift up neighbors during the holidays.


OCPANow: Charitable Giving


OCPA's annual campaign, a Season of Gratitude and Giving, has been a tremendous success year after year. Rick Singh offers information and insight about this great initiative in the video above.


Market News


2019 was an amazing year for Orange County real estate. Residential, commercial, and tangible personal property market values revealed record-breaking growth, and historic levels of new construction translated to over $12 million dollars per day.



When Rick Singh took office in 2013, the county's overall market value was $115 billion. With steady recovery from the 2008 recession, property across the county regained value year after year. Now in 2019, thanks to responsible growth and booming new construction, Orange County's overall market value climbed to a remarkable $208.2 billion. These impressive values showcase the county's thriving economy and will help attract new industries to the region.



2019's prosperity was felt across the county. All 13 municipalities in Orange County experienced market value growth in 2019, and more than half recorded double-digit increases. The Town of Oakland demonstrated the highest growth rate - increasing in market value by 18.5% over 2018. Rising market values are great news for residents whose communities benefit from the additional tax revenue.

What do you think? Will Orange County's market value continue to climb? Which municipalities will continue to grow in market value? What upcoming opportunities will have the most impact on 2020? Head over to our Facebook page to chime in on the discussion.
