Two Florida Cities Offer Home Bargains
Orlando and Jacksonville were recently named by Forbes magazine as two of the top 10 cities for bargain house hunters nationwide. Orlando has fewer speculators than Miami and Tampa and is adding jobs quicker than those areas. And Jacksonville was selected due to its low foreclosure rate, compared to the rest of the state.
In selecting the cities, Forbes looked for areas that weren’t harmed as much by risky lending as other areas of the country, as well as areas where employment growth was strong.
