Homes for sale in Lakeland FL come in many styles and designs. Homes for sale in this city are also available in a wide variety of communities and settings. There are many great reasons to consider purchasing and moving to this beautiful city and great real estate prices is just one of them. Commuters to Tampa or toward Orlando most commonly choose Northern Lakeland but with the turnpike much of the southern part of the city can also be considered.
Southern Lakeland FL makes up the largest part of the housing market for the city. The median price is higher, there are more gated communities and it is slightly less rural than most consider North Lakeland FL to be. Out of the entire city I personally prefer the southern portion because that is where most of the luxury homes are found. Not to mention the best lakes etc.
