Orlando is home to some of the best counties in Florida for working from home, according to a new report.
The National Association of Realtors evaluated more than 3,000 counties in the U.S. to see which were the best for working from home. Counties were evaluated on key metrics including: internet connectivity, percentage of workers in office-related jobs, home affordability, urbanization and population growth.
Seminole County ranked as the best work-from-home county in the region, coming in at No. 2 in Florida and No. 28 in the U.S. Roughly 8.6% of Seminole’s workers already worked from home. At least 80% also have desktop computers or laptops, a broadband internet connection and three or more broadband internet service providers, three key metrics. In addition, the county’s population grew by 6.9% from 2014-2019.
