    Re: moving to florida.

    That's just NE of Orlando. I don't live that far south, but orlando normally is a pretty busy place. I've seen friends talking about available jobs there on occasion, and as far as I know the outlaying areas are growing.

    I would be looking for jobs prior to actually moving next to Orlando though. Prices for housing can be tricky, and if you find a good job on the far side of orlando, it might not be as feasible to move again right after moving down.

    Good luck. I happen to love living in florida, although I haven't lived in any other state.

    Re: moving to florida.

    ovideo is a nice area and house will be a little more expensive in that area. i agree with theresa. check for jobs before you make the leap. i know more than a few people who have been looking for jobs for a while with no luck.

    Re: moving to florida.

    Finding a job any where in FL is kinda hard right now. Please do look before you make it final. I have family down there and housing is a little higher than where I am in FL. So look into it real good before you make the move to be sure it's the right thing. Personally, I would wait for a little while. GOOD LUCK!!! It's been hot and we are all getting good tans right now LOL.
