Home Value in Florida

Hi,  I'm playing with the idea to swap my home with someone in Florida. The address is: 4355 S. Semoran Blvd., Orlando FL.   My home is worth about $ 287.000 and located in WA.  To make a good trade I need to find out the value of this Florida condo. I"m sure it;s not worth nearly as much as my home in WA but I like to make an offer and need to calculate how much more money I need to ask for. Thank you very much for helping!

I'm in Orlando and
1. I would stay away from the semoran area entirely. Especially THAT area of Semoran.   
2. If you are relocating to Orlando  I would look at other areas.
3. at a glance recent sales in that complex are ranging from 31k to 40k for 1400sqft.

I probably wouldnt pay more than about 25-30k. as a rental investment considering you are going to have to pay HOA/ Maint. fees.

I would only consider this move if you were getting a great price for your existing home and a fire sale price on the condo even then I am sure you could do alot better than Semoran. Orlando had an extreme boom of Condo conversions so you should be able to take your pick of areas.  Look at areas like Lake Nona, Metro West, Sand Lake/Dr. Phillips. etc.

Stay away from Semoran...it's one of the worst areas for crime and violence in Orlando.

Not to change the subject, but thanks for asking K101. Not too bad here. About 8 inches over the last few days. Pretty bad up in Flagler and parts of Volusia though. We really needed it though. The wetlands were no longer wet.

Lots of good advice. I wouldn't make the swap. You would do better selling your house first and then picking a FL property without the built in constraints of a swap.

Hey, jkonstant, how have the rains been in your area?  We are all getting pounded, but I think your area may be among the hardest hit.  I hope you haven't had any flooding issues.  This drought/wildfire straight to crazy rain/flooding is gonna take some getting used to for me.

Condos listed on Realtor.com on South Semoran Blvd vary in price from 23k to 60k.

Please, please get an appraisal!

I suggest you contact a local appraiser and have a proper appraisal done.  This would be the fairest to all parties - Realtor.com can give you the names of local realtors - any good realtor should be able to give the name of 3 or more good local appraisers - you should also have an appraisal done on your property -
