Central Florida is Different

Central flrida real estate Here is Central Florida we have a different situation rather than the most of Florida. Here are just some of the reasons why: -We are south of the freeze line for all general purposes, meaning, we usually do not see much cold weather, and northern Fla is prone to that in the winter. -We have a low crime factor. -We still have plenty of land that is rural and undeveloped, for potential growth and maybe for State to purchase for future parks etc... -Our taxes for the most part are generally lower than the rest of the state. -Our insurance rates are also considerably lower, especially lower than the coastal areas. -Hardly no traffic at all!!!!! You can drive down the main highway 27 on Friday night at 7pm and WOW, no traffic! -Decent resturants, shopping, things to do outside, generally a family atmosphere and a laid back way of life. -Several great golf courses. -Mainly a senior/retirement community. -beautiful lakes for recreation & fishing. -And last but definitely not least, where else in the world can you go 1 hr and 45 min to the east coast and watch the sun rise, and then drive across the state to west (from Sebring again approx 1 hr 45 min) and watch the sun set. When I first moved back to Sebring in Nov of 1994 as a single mom from Washington DC that was one of the first things I did with my daughter, we drove over to the Atlantic Ocean and watched the sun rise, play a while in the surf, showered on the beach, got in our little red honda civic and drove back to Sebring, had a lunch at our home, and then drove over to the west coast and played in the Gulf of Mexico (2 totally different types of beaches, sand, water and generally almost night and day difference) and watched the sunset. This is an incrediable experience and I know it is one of the most memorable experiences I ever had.   Centrally located in the state of Florida, 1 hr from Orlando, from each coast 1 hr 45 min, 2 hr 30 min to Ft Lauderdale & Miami (another whole lifetime away from Sebring) but one tank trip. We have Floridas best kept secret! And our home prices are getting back to normal with 2004 pricing I am seeing again, and sellers that are now becoming realistic. If you would like to experience this laid back lifestyle (because yes I sell homes, but it is a lifestyle I am selling too) give me a call at Dell Realty 863-381-0400 and I will show you what Florida is really all about! I am a native, from Hollywood (located between Miami and Ft Lauderdale) and I can really relate to what most people are looking for.!!! Again, to buy or sell call Dawn Dell and I will treat you like Family!

Dawn, it is beautiful up there. Almost like you're in a different State! My kids would love it if we lived so close to Disney. I wouldn't, because I'd go broke! With the price of taxes and insurance down here though, you could go broke. I'm a complete beach freak. Every weekend, that's where you'll find me and my kids. It takes me about 10 min. to drive there. I've seen numerous sunrises and sunsets on the beach and it's breathtaking!
