(And military folks who know they aren't going to be here long enough to buy also tend to drive up rental demand and prices.) It's an affordable market if you're coming from DC or coastal California or such; not so much if you're coming from Oklahoma.
I'm originally from Hawaii, so the cost of housing there doesn't look too bad. We're currently in NC though, so it's a little more than what it is here, but that's okay. We're willing to pay a little more if it's a good, family-friendly neighborhood.

Thanks for the help and information!!

I really like Parkwood, as it is within walking distance to the elementary school. Quite a few of my friends live in there, with young children, and love it.
Thanks for the info! That sounds good.

It looks like a great neighborhood from what I've seen online. How would you say the traffic is getting to Fort Walton beach or Eglin area for work?
