Orlando and Tampa Ranked in the Top 10 Hottest Housing Markets


Zillow’s 2024 Top 10 Housing Markets: Orlando and Tampa Stand Out for Affordability and Weather

The real estate market is shifting in unexpected ways, with Zillow’s 2024 list of the top 10 housing markets showcasing a surprising trend towards affordability over glamour.
