Capacity Crowds
January 4th, 2012 10:42 AM

The Orlando area experienced extremely high crowds over the holiday season this year and it was a big boost to our tourist industry.  Not only were the Disney Parks, Universal and Sea World overflowing with guests, but the newly opened Legoland in Winter Haven had to close its doors due to capacity guests several days in a row.  Add to this, the seasonal bowl games and unusually warm weather, the traffic was flowing heavily on Interstate 4 for weeks from the beaches to the attractions.

With all the visitors here enjoying Christmas and New Years, there was also an increase of activity in home showings.  This marks the beginning of the "peak selling season" when those from Canada, northern US states and  foreign countries make their way to our warmer climate to vacation and look for ideal investment opportunities.   Florida homes are currently offering good value at different price levels, specifically the lower price ranges.   One of the biggest opportunities right now is affordable retirement homes in existing communities.  Home affordability overall is at it highest level since 1970!

There is always something happening in the Orlando or Disney area to draw the crowds and bring people here to begin looking at options for second homes or vacation investments.  It is definitely the right time to be thinking about a home in Florida as the state's population is predicted to grow again in 2012 and with demand, prices will be on the rise. 

Next weekend Disney World will host it's annual Marathon, followed by a Princess Half Marathon in February.   Then in March we celebrate the annual Flower & Garden Festival . . . . .  and the beat goes on and on and on . . . . .  

Start thinking about buying a Florida home and enjoy all the abundant activities in the  future  from the comfort of your own place!  Now is the time!!
