Winter Haven Real Estate

The Winter Haven Real Estate market is strong and rapidly growing. New residential communities are showing up all around the city for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is that Winter Haven has the nicest downtown area for miles. Their is plenty of shopping, dining and service providers for our near 45,000 residents.

Gated Communities in Winter Haven FL

Those 45,000 people need a lace to live and many of them will be buying and selling their homes each year. In my experience the average community will see about 6% of its homes sell each year. In Winter Haven that amounted to around 2,200 homes selling in the previous 12 months. That is a fairly large housing market and with volume that high it is likely you can find a home perfect for you. The median price of a traditional single-family home is around $198,000. I was curious when I saw those numbers so I searched a little deeper. Surprisingly the median price of a lakefront home in the previous 3 months was only $332,000. The most expensive Lakefront home to have sold was only $810,000 and it was incredible.

City of Winter Haven Florida

The city of Winter Haven Florida has non typical boundaries. Do not expect a square or round city with the downtown area centered. Some really nice cities are somewhat intertwined with us and that is just fine. It is certainly not difficult to find a nice place to live within minutes of Winter Haven's downtown area and be technically in another city.

Lakefront Homes For Sale In Winter Haven FL

The downtown area is found on 1st Street which runs north and south parallel to US-17 for about 2 3/4 miles. Immediately to the west of the downtown area you will see Lake Howard which technically is one of the largest lakes in the city. There are around 50 lakes within the cities boundaries.

City Hall is located in the northern half of downtown and within walking distance of Central Park and Trailhead Park on a pretty day. Winter Haven has plenty of those. Even in February our average temperature is 76 degrees. No wonder so many people from the Northeastern United States are moving to central Florida.

Winter Haven Fl Things To Do

There are plenty of things to do here in Winter Haven. With 50 lakes within the cities boundaries obviously there are plenty of water sports you can enjoy. If you get tired of the scenery on one lake in many instances you can just visit another and never leave you watercraft or boat. There are two separate chain of lakes here. The Northern Chain of Lakes and The  Southern Chain of Lakes. Both offer a lot of surface area to keep you occupied with sight seeing, fishing,skiing or just enjoying natures offerings.

I personally enjoy the city parks and Winter Haven has plenty of them. There are parks with trails, bridges, piers or just about whatever you like. Not to mention the more famous Chain of Lakes Trail. When you have visitors or just feel like visiting a unique place you can always visit Legoland. There is a lot more there than you think, and it is likely bigger than you think it is also. When you are ready to leave Legoland just head back toward downtown Winter Haven on Cypress Gardens Blvd and you will pass a lot of restaurants to choose from.

Finding the perfect home for sale

How do you go about it? How do you find the perfect home for sale and know you did not miss the right one for you? How do you minimize your effort while maximizing your result? Simply put you trust a local professional to assist you and you get started relatively early in the process. Why wait till the last minute and trust your luck with someone you find on Zillow?

Funding a Home Purchase 

Right now interest rates are very attractive and historically low. However you may need to start prepping for the banks inspection into your finances. If you are paying cash and are a US resident this does not apply.

Contact your credit agency and ask about your free credit report. You should be able to get this at least once a year with no strings attached. Hopefully you will find no issues and you can start moving forward. The next thing you should do is contact a loan officer and get pre qualified.

Getting pre-qualified will give you an approximation of what you can realistically afford. Later when you are within 90 days of actually purchasing you will need to get pre-approved for your loan. That means you have provided documentation to your lender and they have told you if nothing else changes you can purchase up to a certain amount if the home adequately appraises.

Contact us and schedule a visit. When you arrive we can view sometimes as many as 5-8 homes in a day. I have had many buyers purchase a home they viewed their very first day. Especially if you take advantage of the information on this site and some professional assistance. Below are some common searches performed here for homes/houses for sale in Winter Haven Florida.
