Earlier this year, Forbes came out with their list of the top 20 markets where job openings, population, and home prices are on the rise. Orlando came in at an impressive number 3 spot. “Florida and Texas dominate, but solid markets can be found across the United States. For every city on the list, Local Market Monitor expects home prices to grow by at least 17% by 2020,” the article reads.
Here’s what Forbes had to say about investing in the Orlando housing market:
“Orlando boasts 7.2% three-year population growth and 4.4% annual job growth, both list highs. “A growing economy makes up for a lot of other stuff,” says Local Market Monitor CEO Ingo Winzer. “With a falling economy it doesn’t matter if things are good right now, they are not going to be good in a few years.”
This economy growth shows that investing in a home in Orlando could be a smart financial move in 2017.
