Best of luck! kona
May I ask what town you live in? Have any kids? If so, how old and how did they adjust? I have a teenager. Worried about the move and leaving friends.

Default Central Florida

Central Florida is a good area. Send me a message and I'll send you my e-mail address so we can talk.

Check out this site: http://www.city-data.com/city/Altamo...s-Florida.html

I live in Jupiter Florida and have family in Oviedo. Oviedo has grown tremendously in the past 10 years but I still love it there. Any place in Florida is going to be better than CA from a dollar stand point and as to I-4 traffic doesn't compare to the messes in CA. I have family in Paso Robles, Oceanside, Dublin, San Leandro and Alameda. Was there in August to visit all of them. I was glad to get back to Florida! Do your home work. Good luck.

I live in Clermont and have lived in central Florida for 14 years.I started in Kissimmee,lived in Oviedo,In Orlando but the best is Clermont.Great schools.Even greater potential.Lots of rolling Hills and for $1850 a month you can buy yourself a pretty nice 4 bed 3 bath home over 2000 s.f. no more than 5 years old with a swimming pool for under $300k.I lived in San Fran and it is by far more affordable.The standard of living is as good as it can get.Low crime,Lots to do,easy living,no smog, and a big diversity of people.
Of course its not for everyone,But I have lived in Washington state,New York,Connecticut,California and all over Florida from Miami to West Palm Beach and I gotta say, It's nice out here. The beach is Just 1-hour in either direction but it's central for when those Hurricanes appear(they weaken by the time they get here like it happened 3 years ago).If you need help finding a home let me know.
