Orlando Vacation Home Market
The Orlando resort area includes Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista, Celebration, Davenport, Haines City, Clermont, Four Corner, and Windermere.

Team Donovan has over 50 years of collective experience in the Orlando resort area, working exclusively with sellers and buyers of second homes, investment properties and residences.
‘As an owner in Florida for some 12 years I have also dealt with a number of brokers and realtors in the US. I am also an estate agent in the UK for over 30 years. Team Donovan have been impressed me both in their approach to gain my business with professional marketing and house price reports. Once instructed their client contact was excellent surpassed only by their skills in finding and negotiating a sale and the assistance offered to me as a non US citizen. I have no hesitation in recommending Team Donovan !!!”

Preparing Your Home to Sell
Making a great first impression is vital when it comes to selling your home. That’s why Team Donovan is committed to ensuring your home stands out from the competition. We will review your home and suggest ways to increase your home’s value. These tips may include cleaning, decluttering, making minor repairs, and/or staging.
Very professional in their handling of villa sale. Great communication, very satisfied.”

Pricing Your Home to Sell
Properly pricing a home is critical to getting it sold quickly and at the best price. Research shows that overpricing your home, and then lowering the price several times the longer it remains on the market usually leads to selling for a much lower price than what you originally should have asked for it. That’s why a Team Donovan agent will prepare a detailed analysis of all past sales, homes under contract and current active listings. We also review details such as taxes and HOA fees. This strategy helps us determine the best possible listing price so you can net what you need.
“Incredible service. I received nothing but exemplary advice from the start to the end of the selling procedure. Excellent listing, satisfying negotiation, constant communication during closing and excellent after care.”
