I notice that the native Floridians tend to blame everything on new comers rather than sharing the blame for allowing it to happen in the first place. The common denominator is whining...

As a native, I have to agree.

You got it backwards - it's the newcomers doing most of the whining.... And for the record, I am a native and have never blamed anyone for anything.

gypsychic,

i never, not even close, heard the amount of complaining in Asheville or anywhere in NC in general as I do here. its crazy. i'm fine here in FL, my home state, and i know you like it here too... but you have to admit, when it comes to the people... NC is far ahead of FL.

Its sad because they could have picked all 10 (or most of list) from central Florida, but they probably would have made people mad, so they spread it out.

Deltona, Kissimmee and Bithlo need to be on that list.

Have they had to deal with the influx of transplants and level of growth that many in FL have? I remember trees near interstates where there is now endless cookie cutter and strip mall sprawl

NC has been seeing a ton of growth. But I think NC gets more quality people honestly. Ppl that left FL to have a better quality of life.

Not people that come just for no snow or because thats where all their old neighbors now live.

FL just draws a different crowd, I'll leave it at that.

There's nothing to get backwards. I just stated that it's shared .

Why is Deltona considered not ideal? I ask because I was approached by someone to purchase an investment property there. They have promised appreciation in the future and the projections say the area is growing. Of course I am looking this all up online! I would love your opinions on the area. I so appreciate your help!
