We have lived here 20 years.Why are you considering Lake City?There has been extreme growth in people moving here but still no good paying jobs.Only Super Walmart to shop at and Publix andWinn Dixie for groceries.Little crackerbox store front shopping strip malls.People from south Florida after last hurricane paid big money for property and. escalated property values,hence high property values, high taxes and not much to show,government never has enough money.Our home on market now for 3 months,no lookers.We are not overpriced,5 acres,2000 sq ft,2 out buildings $167,000.Taxes probably stopping lookers.We would accept offers.Florida has lost its appeal betweem taxes and insurance which we do not have because of ridiculous price.Georgia and Tn better if you are retiree.With all of this and $4.00 gas not pleasant area.
