Orlando – More Than a Mickey Mouse Town
Sometimes markets, like actors, get type cast. In the case of Orlando Florida, it’s easy to think of this market as a one trick mouse. But that would be a big mistake.
There’s a MUCH bigger story to Orlando than Mickey Mouse and Disney World. It’s part of Florida, which is a great story in and of itself. There’s strong job and population growth, a diversifying economy, and substantial foreign interest.
After hearing so much positive buzz about Orlando, we commissioned our good friend Ryan Hinricher to do some research and prepare a special report on his findings. Ryan was the natural choice for the project…not just because he’s a super smart, analytical guy…but he’s also an active real estate investor and entrepreneur whom we originally met in Memphis (one of our favorite real estate markets).
We know Ryan knows real estate at the street level. But he’s also great at understanding the mega-trends that drive real estate supply and demand.
Even better, while Ryan still has his business and investments in Memphis, he chose to move his family to Orlando a few years back because he saw an opportunity. He’d already been investing there, but felt like Orlando was well-positioned to be a great investment market. Sure enough, Orlando is doing well and seems to have a lot more room to run.
We don’t want to steal the thunder from Ryan’s report, so…
