As home prices in Central Florida continue to rise, it might seem as though affordable homes in good condition are beginning to disappear. We took the time to browse through hundreds (yes, literally) of homes to find a few good deals you might have over looked. These 5 homes, all in or near some of the best and trendiest Orlando neighborhoods, can all be purchased for under the $300,000 price point. And some of these are seriously cool.
The smallest and most unique on our list is 1619 New York Avenue, located a block from the new The Yard development in Lake Formosa. With frontage directly on the lake, this sweet bungalow has been updated by someone who knows what’s in right now. Light, airy spaces and large windows, a mirrored wall that makes the living room feel huge, wood cabinets and built in breakfast bar, new appliances and French doors opening to a resort-style patio complete this home. Coming in at 1,337 SF, and listed at $298,900, it’s a great buy in a neighborhood that’s only going to get hotter. For more homes in this area, click here.

4425 South Fern Creek Avenue is another charming Mid-Century home with a great price tag. 1,872 SF and currently listed for $289,900, the home has hardwood and tile floors, and a lot of open living space for entertaining.
