Join Us for Our Next Webinar! "Hot Spots and Cooling Trends: Five Years of Home Sales"

Our next webinar will feature exclusive data on single-family home sales trends in Orange County. As you may know, OCPA collects and analyzes real estate sales all over the county. In this webinar, attendees will learn about five-year sales trends of single-family homes in our community; understand the average qualities of those sales including age, price, and size of the property; discover the 10 best-selling neighborhoods; and learn more about the hottest areas for new construction in Orange County.

Here is a sneak peek of the sales distribution of single-family homes in Orange County over the last five years. Do you see the shifting dynamics? What do you glean from the data above? What impact will COVID-19 have on these trends moving forward? Join the discussion on our Facebook page and stay tuned for additional information about the upcoming webinar.

Registration will open soon! Once available, the link to register will be posted to our social media channels and website.

Stay Informed - Visit Our Coronavirus Resources Page

Orange County’s coronavirus situation changes by the day. To help families across our community stay informed, OCPA has developed a resourceful website that houses a wide variety of helpful information. The site includes noteworthy local and national news and important agency announcements. It also houses several data-driven dashboards from the Florida Department of Health and other respected sources.

Users accessing the site will also find OCPA’s new interactive map that displays the locations of all hospitals, urgent care facilities, and pharmacies across the county. Developed using OCPA's GIS technology, residents can access this tool to discover the medical services nearest to their home.

The map will be updated daily as new information is made available. Visit today and share it with your friends, family and neighbors.

OCPA Office Reopening Plans

As the county prepares to reopen in phases, OCPA’s leadership is closely monitoring recommendations and guidelines from healthcare professionals to determine a plan for our office. Our top priority is the wellbeing of our staff and customers, and we are taking all necessary steps to ensure a safe environment upon our return. OCPA has invested in additional sanitation measures for the office while staff has worked remotely, and has ordered additional supplies like masks, gloves, and alcohol-based sanitizer. Additional equipment planned includes sneeze barriers, handsfree sanitizer dispensers, and air purifiers. OCPA’s response to this ongoing crisis is fluid – information about the office’s reopening will be published on social media and our website when available.

2020 U.S. Census

Exciting news! The 2020 Census has received responses from more than half of the households in our nation – nearly 80 million surveys! It’s not too late to submit your response. Filling out your census survey is quick and easy, and can be done online to safely practice social distancing at home. Now’s the time to spread the word and encourage friends, family, and neighbors to participate in this important opportunity. For more information, click here for a breakdown of why the Census is so important.

OCPA's Newest Green Initiative!

Even from home, the OCPA team is committed to going green. Several staff members – including Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh, CFA, Director of Residential Real Estate Assessment Terry Taylor, and Communications Coordinator Sarah Lux - have focused on their gardens while social distancing at home. Rick Singh is growing beautiful flowers, mangos, and peppers; Terry Taylor’s crops include garlic, okra, pineapples, and bananas; and Sarah Lux is watering cucumbers, peaches, green tea, and ghost peppers. Thanks for keeping Orange County beautiful!
