Default Planing to move to Orlando Florida

Like the title says I am planing on moving down there with my wife. We currently live in Long Island New York. We are bringing down her WRX and my STi. I need your opinions. What towns would you guys recommend we look at when buying a house? We want a good school district and a low crime area. Looking to spend under 150k on the house. Also are any of guys managers at a retail chain? I work in the loss prevention field with over 8 years of experience. I am currently a multi location loss prevention manager. Any help would be appreciated

There are a ton of small areas and sub-divisions in Orlando that are nice , it really just depends on the general area you want to live and if you want to be more towards the eastern or western side.

I like the Northeast side of Orlando. Oviedo and Winter Springs, our shop is located in North Orlando.

Being on the Northeast side you can hop on the highway to get most places north and south pretty quickly, and the east coat beaches are about an hour away.

If you're willing to come to the Tampa area, I know a landscaping company that is always looking for good people.

I couldn't tell you. It's going to depend on what you're going to do for the company I suppose.

I agree orlando is very overrated. I just work there then head home. Way too much crime anymore it seems like. Sad thing is apopka and Sanford are becoming the same way now

What towns near Orlando do you guys suggest? I am looking for somewhere with a good school district and a low crime area. My wife and I r planing to rent first for a few months before we buy a house. Also although I am young and still go to meets and things like that, I am not looking for a "party" area. Looking for some place nice and calm that I can raise my kid

It exists, just not near Orlando. The panhandle is way more low key, but people forget that it's still the South. I lived up there for 4 years, and it's ok, but there really isn't a whole lot to do. If you end up in the Destin/Ft Walton/Eglin AFB area, you're 4-4.5 hours from any major city other than Mobile. And Mobile is gross.

Winter Garden sounds like what you're looking for. I live here near downtown and it's beautiful. Very low crime rates and our schools are great. Just my thoughts.

Worth checking out a conversation regarding Orlando back in 2012, I still stand by a lot of what I said.

I'm in the Leesburg, Eustis, Mt Dora area. All calm and low crime in most areas up here. I grew up in Orlando. I don't miss it at all. Cost of living is cheap here, land is cheap, I make a decent enough salary.

I was poor in Orlando.

Never going back.
