Thursday, January 4th, 2018 by Wanda Kaiser in Lakeland, Real Estate / 0 Comments

The secret is out – Lakeland is a great choice for home purchase and overall livability. Earlier this month, a article predicted the 10 U.S. housing markets that will offer the best opportunities in 2018. No surprise to us, Lakeland, Florida came in at number 5. The factors considered in identifying the best housing markets included:

  • Affordability
  • Livability
  • Strong Economies
  • Growth
  • Home Value Appreciation

The author notes that communities such as Lakeland are more affordable than the surrounding area, yet still have strong economies and great amenities.

What Lakeland Has to Offer

Part of Lakeland’s allure is its proximity to both Tampa and Orlando, as well as gulf and ocean beaches within easy drives. After a small bump during the recession, the city is growing as evidenced by the downtown revival and new subdivisions. This has attracted several boutiques and fine dining establishments, as well as other amenities to the city. Home prices remain reasonable, with the median at $180,000, which will gain in value during the coming years.

The Grasslands Component

At Grasslands, we have always appreciated our amazing community and are excited to see it receive the recognition it deserves. We also like to think that we contribute to its success with our country club, golf courses and amazing homes that offer gracious living in a beautiful setting. Our villas in Laurel Glen and The Sanctuary are unsurpassed in design, amenities and quality construction. Landscaped outdoor areas extend the living areas and thoughtful details such as gourmet kitchens, built-in wet bars, soaring and embellished 12-foot ceilings, custom closets and granite countertops, make these homes truly special. In addition to these amazing options, we also offer Heritage Lakes, which gives families the opportunity to design and build their own homes that suit their specific needs and lifestyles.

Now the world knows our secret: Lakeland is a great place to live and we personally would add that Grasslands offers the best homes our community has to offer.
