Which City In Florida Is Best To Buy In 2018?

Some home buyers that are thinking of purchasing in Florida in the coming year are likely wondering which cities are the best for living as far as expenses and job opportunities.  We have taken a look at a variety of different data points from local housing authorities to develop a list of the best cities to live in as far as family life and overall happiness and enjoyment in life, along with convenient access to parks, wildlife, hiking trails, and other recreational activities.

You see, when it comes to factoring in the top places to buy homes in Florida, we also take all of these other factors into account so that we can paint an accurate overall picture in the heads of our readers, so please keep that in mind when you are reading through our posts.

  1. Panama City.  Even though it’s in a location that many residents of Florida consider to be the “dead zone”, Panama City is still a great place to live and raise a family.  Plus, not to mention that the year-round weather temperatures are a bit lower and easier to deal with, so you don’t have to face deathly humidity every single day of the year like some of your southern relatives do.
  2. Melbourne.  The city of Melbourne is rapidly expanding, and their job market growth has seen some sustainable upward trends this year in 2017, so we expect them to do very well this upcoming year in 2018 as well.
  3. Lakeland.  The number one reason that Lakeland made it onto our top 5 cities to live in 2018 list is because it’s a very conveniently and centrally located city to Florida, and you are able to get to any major location in the state by simply traveling a hundred miles or so in any given direction.
  4. Fort Lauderdale.  Fort Lauderdale is an amazing city that has recently lowered their import tax with the goal of attracting new businesses and clientele to the area, so please keep that in mind when you are thinking about all of the different cities in Florida that are on our list to move to in 2018.
  5. Fort Myers.  Fort Myers is the next best place to live that makes our list for the 2018 season, and we think that their current trends in job growth are extremely likely to continue driving economical growth, bringing a much higher population density to the area.
