The 2017 forecast is in – and the figures for home building in Orlando look bright. According to – an online platform that allows 2017 New Home Building Outlook for Orlandoindividuals to search for real estate property and information – Orlando has been listed among the top 100 fastest growing metro areas in the United States for both existing homes and condos, as well as newly built.

Sales growth for the Orlando area for 2017 is estimated at more than 6 percent, with anticipated price gains of 5.8 percent. These numbers actually place Orlando among the top ten U.S. cities, along with Los Angeles, Phoenix, Boston, Raleigh (North Carolina), Portland (Oregon), Tucson, Riverside (California), Sacramento, and Jacksonville (Florida). This prediction on gains far exceeds the expected rise in home prices nationally of 4.6 percent.

Currently, home values throughout Osceola, Lake, Seminole, and Orange counties are the highest among the country’s top metropolitan areas – even just a few short years after Orlando led the nation in foreclosures. Some current home listings are selling within just days – or even hours – of coming to market.
