What is your price range? What size home are you looking for? How far from the airport are you looking to be?

I would suggest taking a look at the Southeast Orlando area around Lake Nona. You can also try Hunters Creek. Both are nice areas and close to the airport.

I would recommend Buena Ventura Lakes, it's about 10 minutes south of the airport and the housing is the most affordable, some people say it's not good but I've lived here awhile and I love it, it's very convenient to everything!

Stay away from BVL it's not the best of neighborhoods. Try looking towards ST. Cloud. Easy ride to the airport close to shopping the turnpike good schools. I lived there for 5 years and loved it. Still have a lot of friends living there so I go back often, it is growing but still has that same small town feel. Good luck in your search.

Stay away from BVL, ST. Cloud is nice, but now you are about 20-30min away from the Airport. If you check out subdivisions on Boggy Creek in Orange County, there are some nice ones east of the Airport. NorthShore is a great place, but homes are very expensive. Fells Cove is also another great place, homes are more reasonable. If you travel east on Boggy creek to Narcrosse Road, right on Narcrosse, a lot of nice subdivisions here, most are reasonable prices. Narcroosee also has an A-Rated Elementary School

I Second looking at the Lake Nona and Hunter's creek area, both are upscale and close to the airport. In either area you can find affordable homes and great deals.

I prefer Lake Nona because they have the "Medical Village" they are building out there. As well as because the Tavistock group is the main developer (they also developed the isle worth area... where shaq and other huge stars have their homes)

I'm a local realtor so if you need anymore info feel free to contact me, my info is in my profile

Check out the Tivoli Woods subdivisions on Econlockhatchee....3 "villages" to choose from - homes built by Cambridge, US Homes, Lennar, and others. Safe, family oriented areas - 10-15 minutes away from OIA.

Lake Nona, East Park, North Lake Park, Village Walk, Eagle Creek, LaVina, North Shore at Lake Hart are all within 7 miles of MCO off Narcoossee Road. Great area and as posted before - we are getting the medical school, VA hospital, Burnham Research Institute, the largest park in Orlando (bike trails, hiking, water), new high school, new elementary, a huge mall coming by 2010, so this is the area to buy in right now. You are located between the 417 and the 528 - the Beachline.

Lake Nona and Hunter's Creek are quite expensive. If you want a nice area that's well established, I'd say the Conway or Belle Isle area (southeast) area of Orlando. They have some nice places there. They're also very close to the airport!
Good luck on your move!

Lee Vista is also close to OIA, and is safe, but more towards the expensive side. Other than that, this side of Orlando is really getting bad though. 408/Conway area all the way spreading towards 417/Curry Ford has gone to S%#T
