As home prices remain affordable and interest rates hit record lows, Florida home builders have seen an uptick in buyer demand. Experts note we may be on the verge of a homebuying frenzy.
Why now you might ask?

Referred to as “shadow demand,” it is estimated that as many as 2 million people who might have wanted to purchase a home between 2008 and 2010 did not due to the recession. Now those people, as well as the regular flow of new homebuyers, are out searching for their perfect home. Read More→
Tucked away on the fringes of the city, Winchester Estates is a community of north Lakeland new homes where residents enjoy a country-like setting with convenient access to US-98 and I-4. One thing that really stands out about this particular area is the presence of local “mom and pop”-type establishments that vary from the normal hustle and bustle of a city, and provide a unique local flavor.
When it comes to restaurants, North Lakeland has the typical chain locations to satisfy your cravings like any city.

The seasons have changed and springtime is here! In addition to longer days and nicer weather, the ever popular spring cleaning season is upon us. Spring cleaning’s popularity is rumored to have taken root because the weather is nice enough to open windows and air out your home, but not hot enough to carry the humidity and bugs associated with summer. It’s also a good time to make sure your Orlando, Tampa, Lakeland or Winter Haven home is prepared for the hot summer months.
While every Central Florida new home (or old home) has its own unique characteristics and needs when it comes to straightening things up, there are a few basics that anyone can fall back on when it comes to spring cleaning. Read More→
