In this project we are going to analyze Orange County in depth. This analysis would be of help to anybody who would like to invest or live in a property in Orange County, Florida. We will explain the different important variables that have to be taken into consideration when buying a property and also answer various common questions in a statistical manner.

How does the year the property was built affect the price?
What type of housing was most bought between 2011-2012?
