How to Find the Stuff You Need Before Investing In Orlando Real Estate

Aug 17, 2007
Before investing in any kind of Orlando real estate option, it is important to draw a list of all the things required, irrespective of the type of property in question. In developing land and property deals, buyers generally initiate the fact collecting process with the first property that they visit and the process remains in operation till they either drop out of the deal or if they opt for a settlement.

The following is a list of facts and information that proves to be helpful in getting started, when investing in Orlando real estate:

1. Sales and ownership information and that of tax assessment are available in different formats. For all the information, there is a source, which is most of the time accurate and updated. For real estate documents, like liens, deeds, easements, restrictive covenants and subdivision plans, the main source keeps a record of all the filings that are maintained by the respective government departments, along with the documents and the recording data. This information is kept in the county courthouse, where the concerned property is located. Deeds consist of the legal description of the property and the actual dimensions of the property.

2. If you wish to find out about the property owners, but do not know their addresses, the best way is to view all the tax plans and maps of the properties present in the municipality. By eliminating each property, one by one, you will be able to identify the right property. However, it is important to remember that some of the information contained on the tax maps may be inaccurate, especially factors like zone classification, shape and size and whether the property is inclusive of public utility services.

3. New Construction Committees, within the municipality help you to find out who is or will be constructing in a particular area. They also help you to avail of a list of all the approved land developments and subdivisions in the municipality. Once this is done, you can visit the new construction sites, interact with the main site agent and bring back brochures.

4. Municipality Records help in identifying properties that have been filed for subdivision, land development or rezoning approval. Once you have decided on the properties that would interest you, you should schedule time for reviewing files and plans in the municipality office. This information is open to the public and everyone is permitted to review the material related to municipal action taken during special hearings and meetings. This is an outstanding source of information for all those who are planning to sell their Orlando properties and houses.

5. Utility Maps help to examine the surrounding streets beyond simply identifying fire hydrants and manhole covers. You need to view and study the maps that are easily available with the regional or municipal water and sewage authorities, private water companies and the regional or the County Planning Commission.

6. The state, local or federal agencies, municipality or the regional or county Planning Commission can help to access information on planned highways and other facilities.

Orlando is not only one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world, it also happens to be one of the most sought after real estate markets too.
