Pool Homes in Central Florida: Knowing When It’s Time to Dive In

One of the most magical sites to see when flying into Orlando International Airport is the bountiful turquoise waters below, adorning the yards of many locals who have the pleasure of swimming in their pools the whole year through. In Central Florida, when considering the pursuit of the American Dream – homeownership – many envision a refreshing swimming pool as an essential part of that dream.

Opendoor, which launched in 2014 as the first company of its kind to offer an iBuying platform, has many homes listed throughout Central Florida that offer a beautiful backyard oasis for anyone who seeks it. For those who may be unfamiliar, an iBuyer is a company that uses technology to make an offer on a home almost instantly. iBuyers represent a dramatic shift in the way people are buying and selling homes, offering a simpler, more convenient alternative to a traditional home sale.

While boundless activities such as visiting area theme parks, boating in local lakes, or even day trips to white sand beaches are accessible to Central Florida residents, sometimes it’s just preferable to spend the day relaxing at home in your own private retreat.

In this five-bedroom, three-bathroom Oviedo home, for example, an inviting open-air swimming pool overlooks lush landscaping in the home’s fenced backyard. The spacious two-story home – which sits on a cul-de-sac – features a kitchen island, granite countertops in the kitchen, a master bathroom with a separate tub and shower, an office, den, an enclosed patio, and a two-car garage under 2,911 square feet.
