I live in southern Missouri and love it here. The delimia is that I have a job offer that will pay $30-$40,000 more per year but requires a move to Orlando FL. Having never lived anywhere else I'm a bit gun shy about making a move like that, and so is the wife.
Some of my questions might sound crazy but I really do want to know...
Are alligators in just about any body of water in FL? Florida residents have told me they can't let their dogs run in any park that has a lake or pond out of fear they might be eaten. Is this true? Would it be true in the Orlando area?
Why do all the homes with pools I see on line have some big screen surrounding the whole space? Are these a necessity? Is it for bugs, sun, both?
What is the best neighborhood in the Orlando area for raising 3 young boys? Best school, lowest crime etc.
What is the general demographic of the Orlando area?
Real Estate seems unbelievably low there now. I see $500k homes going for $225 on Zillow. Any insight into the cause or if it is going to hit bottom anytime soon?
Besides the Mouse and NBA team, what are the other things to do?
If you live there what makes you like / dislike it?
If you used to live there, why did you move?
