It's more likely Tampa/Orlando will become like SE FL....not NE FL.
Orlando is already on its way. Can't imagine how it will be here in 20 years.

So for ten years now, my parents have been buying and selling houses in the Ormond Beach and Flagler Beach areas and like to go there a few times a year for vacation. Now that they are in their late 50's they are thinking about retirement and hoping to be snowbirds between FL and CT, maybe in a few years from now or something. The few properties that they own are along A1A in Ormond Beach and Flagler Beach. Their main appeal to the area is that Volusia County and Flagler County, in general, is laid back, easy going, quiet and is right on the coast. Traffic is very easy going, people are friendly, etc. They also say it's better protected against hurricanes in that area. They absolutely love it.

BUT....will it stay that way in say 10 or 20 years from now? One of their neighbors down there just moved up to Ormond Beach from Fort Lauderdale. The neighbors said that back in the 70's or 80's, SE FL was beautiful, peaceful, quiet, affordable and a true paradise. So they feel refreshed having just moved to Ormond Beach now. But they warned my parents that at the rate things are going, that in 20 years from now, this northeast coastal section of Florida could become just like Southeast Florida -- busy, congested, stressful, expensive, etc.

Do you think that this will happen? Is it only a matter of time? I mean, nearly 1,000 people are moving to FL per DAY. It's insane!
It will grow while Baby Boomers retire. Once that trend ends the smaller families of today will slow any growth as fewer people overall to move or afford a move. Millennials seem to prefer city living in smaller homes and walkability. Volusia County is NOT what they will want.

The beachside area from Ormond Beach to Flagler is pretty much built out. There is a street with lots for new snouthouses and an potential street where a developer put in underground utilities and got caught by the economic collapse of 2007. But that is about all of the buildable space left. The rest of the unbuilt areas are parks and recreation areas.

Daytona Beach is going through a renovation phase where hotels on the ocean are renovated or knocked down and rebuilt.

Exactly, nor Flagler County or St John's County.

I hope not. That'd be awful.

Wow if you feel so strongly that it is so horrific here, perhaps you should move to a different county?

That nasty attitude tells me you are a hater. So if people don't agree with YOU, we're racist then.

Interesting how you dragged racism into a thread on real estate.

Racists do that.

Now FL has a lot of different races living in it and while I see a few comments about Spanish being very common in SE FL, which it is, I rarely see any real racial issues.

Millennials still want good school, which Duval lacks. If you go to Nocatee on food truck Fridays, it is just packed with thirtysomethings with kids who live in St. Johns County. Younger millennials are still in cities because they do not have kids yet.

That's northern St John's County just outside of Jacksonville and a small sliver of the county. South of 210 and west of US1 throughout the remaining 3/4 of the county (outside of St Augustine) is virtually undeveloped.
