There are not many places in this country where you can buy a 4 bedroom home (fairly new) on .25 acres for under $200K, AND still get quality. You would think it's because it's a lower-income area, but it's not. The area is growing....slowly, which IMHO is a good thing. There is very low crime, affordable homes, lots of open, clean spaces, and it is relatively close to everything (beaches, shopping, dining, etc.) It's coined a 'bedroom community' because it's where people come home to from outside areas where they work. With only 45 minutes to Sarasota, people will commute, but know that home is a tranquil respite. It has its down-sides, but in relation to other cities, it's all based on your particular likes. If you are single and like night-life, you would hate it. If you were ambulatory and need many types of medical facilities or therapeutic facilities, you would hate it. It has no WOW factor, but it's clean, safe and quiet. One thing that I noticed being a little strange is that almost everyone has a well, septic, and water softner. A lot of people are converting to city water. Those are just other things to have to take of, which may be a turn-off to perspective buyers. As well, some streets are not in the best condition and there are a lot of empty lots just buzzin' with insects. It'll take time, but the streets and lots will get cleaned/cleared up. In the meantime, enjoy the solitude - if that's your cup of tea.
