ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Property values for Orange County continue to increase, topping last year’s numbers. “Record-breaking growth and a thriving central Florida economy will allow Orange County to keep pace with the demands,” Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh said.

Most notably, new construction increased to $3.6 billion in 2018, up from $3.1 billion in 2017. Six of the county’s 13 municipalities showed double-digit increases in taxable values from the 2017 numbers.
