Sanford FL and for the most part all of Seminole County in Central Florida doesn’t really have a lot of land available anymore. Since land has become so expensive, builders have been either constructing town homes (more homes on less land) or luxury homes.

Downtown Orlando Townhomes

Lake Eola Downtown Orlando

Living in downtown Orlando is a dream many (first time) home buyers dream: walking to cafes, restaurants and shops – possibly even to work! It’s a dream of convenience and urban lifestyle. Imagine living only minutes away from beautiful Lake Eola, the perfect spot for a walk or just to relax and read your favorite book. Visit the public library, one of the many art galleries, and last but not least the many trendy night clubs, bars and restaurants O-town has to offer – all by foot or bicycle!

If this is a lifestyle that suits you, definitely check out the townhomes downtown Orlando has to offer at the moment (property slider on right). You will see, there aren’t many because the downtown area of the City Beautiful is a desirable spot – however, you may find the one that is just right for you!
