Part of the appeal of Kissimmee is that it offers a great location and a number of different neighborhoods, ideal for any homebuyer. The real estate market in Kissimmee is considered to be a more affordable option to big-city Orlando, and is made up of single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and luxury estates. 

Much like price point, home styles in this city vary greatly. From traditional bungalows to two-story Mediterranean or Ranch style homes, there’s something for every taste. Smaller, older bungalows built in the 50s and 60s tend to be listed at more competitive prices, whilst single-family homes for sale (found in the city’s newer residential areas) start at higher price points. The latter properties do often come equipped with modern interiors and upgrades, generous square footage, and several garage/parking spaces.

Neighborhoods in Kissimmee attract families, for their community parks, quiet residential streets, and close proximity to the area’s schools.

Beyond single-family homes, Kissimmee also has a good number of condos and townhomes for interested homebuyers. Architectural style and construction dates range, and as a result, there is a mixture of traditional and contemporary properties. There are a number of modern townhomes and small condo developments, which are a great opportunity for investors or first-time homeowners. Amenities for these homes can include pools, fitness centers, playgrounds and tennis courts, and most importantly, great locations.

Some of the most desirable homes in Kissimmee are located on the water. The city has a number of natural lakes and small bodies of water that homes often back onto—some of which are planned and/or gated communities. Waterfront real estate in Kissimmee is desirable for its added privacy and gorgeous, scenic views.
