Selling a lake front home in Orlando requires a specialized Realtor and these types of properties are a staple of the Orlando real estate market. Orlando has thousands of lakes and even more lake front homes scattered across every central Florida zip code. These waterfront houses are in a class of their own when it comes to pricing a home for sale. Since lake properties are always worth more than their landlocked counterparts, it is important that an agent knows where to find the right sold comparable homes in order to price the home correctly and get the most amount of money for the lake front home as possible.
There are a handful of chains of lakes throughout the Greater Orlando area that provide entertainment for Orlando homeowners and tourists alike. Owning a home on one of these chains increases the value of the property that much more. Popular chain of lakes communities include Windermere, Doctor Phillips, Winter Garden, Clermont, Kissimmee and more.

Lake-front home FAQ's
Does water access raise my home's value? - Orlando is a popular boating community and the residents of the City Beautiful flock to these water access properties year round. Since there is a higher demand and less inventory for this type of Orlando real estate, their value and price is significantly greater than a lake front home without water access.
Is flooding an issue for Orlando waterfront homes? - Flooding is determined by many more factors than the proximity of a home to a body of water. Some of the highest flood risk areas in Orlando are not lake front communities. Click FLOOD ZONE SEARCH to search for a properties flood zone code by address.
Are Orlando lakes safe to swim in? - There is never any kind of safety guarantee when enjoying one of Orlando's many accessible lakes. A swimmer should swim at their own risk and understand that wildlife is plentiful in all of Central Florida's lake front home communities. Many Orlando home owners enjoy their waterfront homes without ever having any dangerous or traumatic incident occur to them or their families. Nevertheless, caution should always be exercised when boating or swimming in any large body of water.
How important is your home's value?
Knowing what your home is worth is the first step in ensuring that you get the best value for your property in the most efficient and quickest way possible. The Orlando real estate market has become a seller's market over the past few months. Home values are steadily going up as inventory in Orlando and the surrounding neighborhoods diminishes. Home sales that end up in multiple offer situations are becoming the norm in the industry. This is where I come in! My expertise of the Orlando real estate market and my technology based marketing plans will get your home or property sold for the most amount of money, in the least amount of time.
Pricing your home right from the start will have a huge impact on the outcome of the sale and the seller's net proceeds. An in depth analysis of current real estate market conditions must be carried out correctly in order to try and predict how the market will respond to a specific price. All sellers want to get the most out of their home, this is nothing new!
The danger comes in overpricing a home. Many sellers have a deep emotional attachment to their property and always believe that their home is better than all other homes in the neighborhood. the truth of the matter is, it does not matter what a seller thinks their house is worth, it does not matter what a Realtor® says a house is worth, it does not even matter what an appraiser says a house is worth! All that matters is what a buyer is willing to pay for a specific property. We live in the technology age and buyers today have access to all sorts of tools that helps them determine if they are getting a "good deal." If a home is priced to high, no one will show up to see it and as the house sits on the market, people will start to wonder what is wrong with it. Pricing a home for sale is the most important factor in getting your home sold!

Home buyer's LOVE good pictures! Without quality home pictures, a house may as well not even be listed for sale. Most buyers prefer to look at pictures before they read any description of the home. If they do not like what they see in the picture department, they will most probably move on to the next listing.
Pictures will not sell the home, they will prompt the buyer to go view the home, effectively getting them one step closer to buying. The potential buyer will then go out with their agent and view many houses before picking just one. In this process, homes will begin to blend together in the exhausted mind of the buyer, and all they will have as a reference back to any specific property, will be the pictures. This is why they are SO important. They are the first impression and the last in the mind of the potential home buyer.
