Home Buyers Moving South: Orlando 4th Top City to Move to in America
Have you noticed a lot of moving trucks on the roads or in your neighborhood lately? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 36 million Americans relocated in 2012, an increase from 2011’s 35.1 million. With the majority of buyers relocating to warmer areas, it’s no surprise that Orlando is a favorite destination of many. With a wide variety of local attractions and a median home price of $116,000, there are many reasons why now is a great time to purchase a new home in Orlando.
According to data from Penske Truck Rental, Orlando is the fourth most popular city to move to in the United States. Many would say that Orlando is a favorite because of famous attractions including Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World, but Orlando has a lot more to offer than theme parks. Orlando is one of the world’s largest golf destinations with more than 50 golf courses located throughout metro Orlando. Many professional golfers call Orlando home due to the range of courses available for practicing and playing year round. If golfing is not your thing, there are plenty of other outdoor activities available to enjoy the year-round warm weather including fishing, boating, tennis and more. Plus, Orlando is only about an hour from Florida’s famous beaches!
With its local attractions and close proximity to water, Orlando is the perfect location for those looking to relocate to warmer weather.
