Orlando...Hot Market!

​Le​ss than two years after metro Orlando led the nation in foreclosures, it's now expected to post some of the hottest real estate gains in the United States during 2017, two new reports show.

Home values throughout Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake counties are expected to increase 5.7 percent during the next year — the highest rate among the country's top 100 metro areas, according to real estate analytics firm Zillow.

"It's actually a thriving market in the sense where people can find employment and buy a house," said Svenja Gudell, chief economist for the company.
