What to Do?
Ocala is centrally located, right in the middle of everything Florida has to offer. We are just 50 miles south of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators - just an hour from a great university and some really great college sports entertainment. Many of our residents have purchased their home in Ocala for the value and lifestyle, and commute to Gainesville for work or school.
Just about one hour south of Ocala you will find all the fun and entertainment anyone could want in Orlando, Florida. Theme parks, restaurants, dinner theater, and interactive exhibits of every kind await just one quick drive down the interstate. No wonder Ocala is the choice of many retirees and vacation home buyers from around the world.
For the beach-lover, we have famous Daytona beach to the east and Clearwater to the west. At Daytona you can drive your car right onto the beach - just find your spot and park for the day. On the other side of the state in Clearwater, the Gulf water stays warm long into the fall and the pier is lined with artists, street vendors and street shows every night.
Do you like the great outdoors? Ocala is a great place for the nature lover. We have miles of trails, several nearby natural springs and many other sites to see in the Ocala National Forest. How about car racing? In Ocala? Yep - we have dirt track racing every Saturday night at the Ocala Speedway, not to mention the Daytona 500 right up the road.
Let's not forget our major claim to fame - Ocala Florida is also considered the Horse Capital of the World . We have an abundance of breeders and trainers in the area, and all the shows and events that go along with that. Whether you own your own horses or just love the scenery, Ocala has hundreds of horse farms in all sizes and every side of town.
So regardless of how you choose to spend your free time - Ocala has you covered!
Over the last several years, Ocala home values were really affected by the recent mortgage crisis. Many of our homes have lost as much as 50% of their value, and some of our properties are still listed for less than the cost to rebuild. Late in 2011 we started to see a turnaround in the Ocala market. Homes have been selling more quickly and the number of sales has picked up considerably. The good news for those looking to purchase a home in Florida is that the homes in Ocala are still inexpensive compared with other areas of Florida, making our properties a great deal in today's Florida Market.
