I know Orlando is the tourist capital of the world -but for regular rentals -do the prices lower after the snow birds leave? Do you get snowbirds like we do in Clearwater, Tampa etc? Seem renst were less not to long ago now they freeaking skyrocketting again=== so my question is-- is it normally this way due to winter seasons? I want to rent a one or 2 bedroom and boy my new promotion looks like crap with the rental prices now. I can stay with family for a bit if they go down in April, if not I guess just move inthe hood or keep my part time. ughh

For normal rentals in non-tourist areas I think not. Most people rent in one year increments. Most property management companies and many HOA rules would require a one year commitment. This avoids having the house sit vacant during the slow seasons.
For The Villages retirement community, rent is definitely higher if you just want a short-term rental in the winter. I would assume many snow birds are 55+ and would stay in one of the many 55+ communities while staying in Florida.
If you want cheap prices you just need to go out from the best areas a bit. Clermont is a great city and much cheaper than Orlando for housing. Winter Garden is good too.

On the east side there are plenty of cheap rentals. Around Lee Vista Blvd should be cheap, mainly because the schools there are some of the worst in Orlando and the airplane noise can be extreme. There are lots of apartments along Semoran. $900/mo is very cheap though, depending on what is included. This price point isn't the target market for snow birds, so the answer to your original question is no. Snow birds are retirees paying $3000/mo to live in The Villages, Boca Raton, or Palm Beach. To be a snow bird you have to have a high net worth or high income, meaning you aren't living in a tiny apartment.
A lot of lower income folks live in St. Cloud and Kissimmee. St Cloud is a pleasant city with pretty much everything and 20 minutes to the airport.
Rental prices are only going to go up. Orlando is a thriving growing city and lots of people are moving here. The airport is expanding, Medical City is expanding, UCF is expanding, all of which are creating housing demands in East Orlando where you are.

Any place that you sign a 12 month lease has nothing to do with tourist they do not get 12 a month lease.

well I PT at HD and in Clearwater the Canadians are all in mobile homes. efficiencies and not expensive places,,The come, they buy the cheapest they can get, and fix up what they bought. I know they live in HD all day. it is very hard to find any apts as the 7 mo leases are theirs until April then they leave the colleges close for summer and the regular apts complexes are begging - great specials and even pay to move you in. My move tt last apt was free with $200 off the first mo rent. and 1 yr lease.. Moved in April 30- so as this move-- the job will tell me when to show up for work, just wondering if in April the apts are more available and better move in deals. Just thought ORL areas might be similar to TampaBay.

Most people with experience and education make a lot more than that.

I wouldn't get out of bed for that type of money.

So what are you trying to say? probably 70% of the people in FL make that - so they should all stay home in bed and let your sweet taxes feed them? Apparently - and as some don't keep up with news and the economy--- many educated experienced people are retaling and in service jobs for now? So you want to donate,,, I know a few folks who would love to stay in bed. !
I personally consider some places completely over priced for what you get at $900/1000- they are shabby and well just not worth that... it is all about the supply and demand... and I have plenty of time to shop around.

Annerk always says stuff like that when given the opportunity.

I make good coin, I'd never say something like that.
