So aside from great food, places to golf, having the excellent University of Florida institution, 4 hospitals (including Shands) and a myriad of entertainment options and State Parks to visit and the prestigious title of #1 City to live in the nation according to Cities Ranked and Rated 2007 edition, Gainesville now has another notch to add in its lengthy catalog of win:
That's right! The city you know and love (and apparently work in!) currently also has one of the lowest unemployment rates!
Speaking of "low" and "rates", it's also a wonderful time to buy real estate in Gainesville, FL. Interest rates are still low and there is a lot in the way of selection just waiting for you to snatch it up! If you're interested in fishing the Gainesville market to see what it has to offer YOU, don't by shy: contact me today for a free MLS search to see what homes are currently available in your search criteria! With everyone else flocking here to live, work and retire, can't you envision yourself planting your roots here too? All this fuss must be about something!
Remember, sometimes buyers keep waiting on the sidelines for the bottom to hit and they don't realize they've been sitting on it until the prices start to go back up. Prices have come down and it's a great time to investigate the inventory!
