Orlando Real Estate

Inventory continues to climb, but mostly in higher price ranges. The lack of more affordably priced homes caused year over year sales to drop a bit, but pushed the median sales price higher.

A lot of people may write or report on multi-generational housing, but for the last 15 years, I have lived it. The biggest consideration for our family was making sure each generation had their own space. We actually had both our mothers living with us, although I always say we moved both mother-in-laws in. We also had our two daughters, and for several months our niece even stayed with our family. Each mom needed her own room and bathroom, the girls could share a large room and bath, and my wife and I, of course, would get the master suite. Since neither mom could negotiate stairs very well, we had to find a house with at least three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first level. We were also looking for an extra room, so the mom’s could have a place to get away and watch television or read. Additionally, since my mom was still driving at the time, we really wanted a three car garage. We found ourselves looking for a five bedroom, four bath, three car garage, one story home. All the other usual considerations, such as school district, location and price range were still important.

We found a fantastic home in #BaldwinPark.The Dorchester model by Issa Homes was ideal, with a big dining room for family meals, separate office, formal living, master suite, and four other bedrooms with two additional baths on the main level.

There was a large bonus room over the garage with another full bath for our daughters. I think that making sure each generation had their own space was huge for us being able to live together in relative peace. This was our home for 10 years, until both daughters left for college, and my mother-in-law passed away. We downsized with my mother a few years ago, and actually got along pretty well in a smaller home until my older daughter returned home to attend grad school. It has been hardest on her, since she has been sharing a bathroom with my wife and I, and she really does not have any space where she can escape to, except her bedroom. My daughter is about to wrap up graduate school, and will likely be moving out in the next few months, so we will be back to just two generations in our household.

If you are considering a multi-gen home in Orlando, give me a call. I’d love to help your family find the right place to call home.

Sales were way off from a year ago, on very modest price gains. Inventory is slightly higher, but new listings are down as we finish out 2018. I am expecting 2019 to be flat as Orlando has come off nearly an eight year run, since our low in February of 2011.
