Several counties in Central Florida have been outperforming the whole state in terms of home prices, according to new data. The successful counties are particularly those along the corridor of Interstate 4. This may be welcome news to those who are interested in selling or buying residential real estate in this part of Florida.
The four counties around Orlando saw home prices increase by more than 7 percent during the 12 months leading up to August. The midpoint home price is $185,000. Throughout the state, house prices increased by 4 percent during the same period, reaching a $181,000 median price.
