Home Builder with Maronda Homes

The Greater Lakeland area which includes Auburndale and Winter Haven is listed as the third “Most Affordable City in the US to Buy a Home”  according to CNN money.  With it’s proximity between Orlando and Tampa and the local jobs picture improving, thanks to the opening of Legoland, their new water park and the construction of the CSX intermodal terminal in Winter Haven the jobs picture is getting better every day.   “While both home prices and incomes have been hit hard here over the past several years, the decline in home values has far surpassed falling wages”, said Ken H. Johnson, professor of real estate at Florida International University.  This provides a unique opportunity for those that have been renting and would like to own their own home.
