Orlando named one of top 5 markets for real estate investing…

Looking for a sure bet for single-family investment properties? Then Orlando is a market you’ll want to check out.

A new list of the top 20 markets for real estate investing puts the City Beautiful at No. 5 nationwide — and the highest-ranked Florida market on the list. North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota came in at No. 10.

“The real estate markets that made the top 20 list for investing were chosen based on population growth and its near cousin, job growth — both conditions ideal for investing in single-family homes,” said Ingo Winzer, president and founder of Dallas-based Local Market Monitor, which compiled the data for the rankings. “In all of the top 20 markets, the populations increased by more than double the national average of 1 percent.”
