Owning life: 20 affordable homes and adorable fixer-uppers for sale in Orlando


If you're thinking that 2015 is the year to buy a house, Orlando's market has some appealing gems depending on what part of town you're most interested in calling home permanently. We explored some of the more popular parts of town (downtown, Winter Park, College Park) as well as the 'burbs to see what kind of adorable, affordable homes (which we defined as having an estimated value between $100,000 and $250,000) were out there and uncovered 20 properties with unique, homey features an average Orlando resident can enjoy without breaking the bank (Indeed.com estimates the current average salary in Orlando at $51,000). According to recent data from mortgage research site, HSH.com, the average salary someone in Orlando needs to earn in order to afford a home in the current market is $42,143, so get to clicking if that's you and this is the year you rid yourself forever of toe-tapping landlords.
