Seminole County may be the third smallest county in Florida, but real estate “wise” it is one of the hottest areas of all of Florida to buy a house. As with the rest of Central Florida and the Orlando Metropolitan area, home sale prices are rising at an extraordinary rate and houses are selling faster than ever before. Seminole County’s positioning between Orange County and Volusia County has resulted in it becoming one of Florida’s fastest growing counties. People relocating to Central Florida view Seminole County as a diverse and progressive center for both economic growth and for residing in. With great roads and easy access to Downtown Orlando, Disney World and the beaches on both coasts, the county also offers great schools, excellent shopping and fine restaurants to its residents. With an unemployment rate well below the national average and a high per capita income, the county is one of the most attractive areas to live in the entire Orlando Metro area.
