Default Oviedo vs Casselberry

Can anyone give me info on how these 2 compare? I've noticed alot more homes in the Casselberry area for sale/rent.

We will be moving down around June of next year and had completely decided on Oviedo and now I just wonder how the 2 stack up!

Thanks!

I like Oviedo better IMHO. Casselberry can be very congested at times and also is an older area. Oviedo is more spread out.

I agree on Oviedo having newer communities due to the rural location and less stressful.

Casselberry with older construction as the norm is better located and with that you have a bit more drive traffic.

Hope this helps,

It would depend on where the OP is planning to work. Driving from Oviedo to Maitland or downtown Orlando for example would be far worse than driving from Casselberry. I've never heard (or experienced) the East-West Expressway, Red Bug Road or Aloma Avenue referred to as less stressful than 17-92 or 436.

Also, some people actually prefer older homes with character in nice established neighborhoods versus cookie-cutter bland newer homes in treeless subdivisions.

I'm in Oviedo, and our home is not that cookie cutter and definitely has many trees

We have friends in Casselberry and like everyone says, its older homes and more congested, we are happy we went to Oviedo

Thank you all very much! I appreciate your opinions and yes they do help!

We've pretty much set our heart on Oviedo, so I think that is where we will wind up!

Thank you again!

I am glad I was not the only one who took offense to that. Half of our subdivision in Oviedo is reserved to Conservation and has LOTS of trees. We have a pair of nesting bald eagles even.

The rest still has plenty of trees as well. In areas with newer homes, Oviedo has requirements as to the minimum number of trees per property (I believe that to be at least five hardwoods) and you must get city permission to remove trees from your property. We have lots of trees in our right of ways. Many folks have planted trees as well on their yards.

Our homes are very varied in styles, floorplans, colors, and designs as well. I would not consider my subdivision 'cookie cutter'. It's one of the reasons we chose it in fact.

We LOVE OVIEDO!

Oviedo... I like Oviedo, always have. Very safe (I'd put it against just about any other town of it's size in regards to safety). And pretty good schools.
