Orlando Has Everything!

Housing Market - #2 in the Nation

Per Zillow, with a 2.8 increase in population, Orlando is the second hottest market in the country. Taking into account, home value, income growth, job opportunities and low unemployment, in January 2019, Zillow named Orlando the second hottest market in the country beaten out by only one, San Jose, CA.

Forbes says home prices in Orlando are projected to increase by 35 percent over the next three years. This puts the City Beautiful at the No. 1 spot for home housing investments.

Job Market - #3 in the Nation

Also last month, CNBC announced Orlando is excelling as one of the strongest job markets. WalletHub compared 182 cities on job opportunities, employment growth, average starting salary and 27 other variables to come up with a list of current places where you will find the best opportunity of being hired in a quality position.

Not since 2001 have so many individual quit their jobs, but they are finding new ones at a 15 percent increase in benefits. "It’s a good time to be on the job market. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ most recent jobs report, the national unemployment rate has fallen to an eighteen-year low of 3.7 percent while hiring is up." Orlando placed #1 under category Most Job Opportunities!

Entertainment - #2 in the Nation

Orlando has the best variety of restaurants, bars, outdoor sports, and roller coasters. With such a variety of fun things to do, your group will always find something that appeals to everyone. WalletHub compared 180 cities using 65 points of criteria and Orlando soars to the top again.
