In the Orlando real estate market, 2013 ended with a bang as a number of commercial developers and investors showed interest in the region.  During the last few months of 2013, a number of foreign and local investors alike made purchases or began on projects that channeled a great deal of money into the Central Florida area.  For example:


  • The Carroll Organization of Atlanta, GA, purchased Bala Sands Apartments in the west Orlando area for $36.3 million.

  • Canadian investors at the Highyon Assets Corporation acquired the Parkwood Plaza shopping center on Colonial Drive for $10.2 million, with plans to build on the undeveloped land included in the package.

  • Eckell Development group released plans for the first new condominiums to be built in New Smyrna Beach for eight years.  Called Waterford, these luxury beachfront condos will be priced from $600,000 to $1.5 million each.


What does this mean for Central Florida and the Orlando real estate market as a whole?  The Central Florida region has attracted big-name investors, creating a growing sense of confidence in the area’s real estate market.  Furthermore, these new developments can help to create jobs as well as to increase local property values.
