What You Should Know Before Moving to Orlando

Orlando, FL is most known for its world-class attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios, but once you’re here, you’ll find a city filled with diverse communities to fit virtually any interest and life stage. If you’re looking to purchase a home, this makes finding the right real estate agent all the more important. They can help understand exactly what you need and find you not only the right home but also the right community.

Being in Florida, most winters only find temperatures dropping to the 50s – making it a respite from the cold for the rest of the country. This means a tremendous influx of tourists during the colder months. This can lead to heavy traffic and wait times around popular destinations like amusement parks and restaurants.

How to Get Settled into Orlando, Florida

Orlando is so much more than the home of Disney World. It’s different neighborhoods offer such a diverse array of activities. It’s almost too much to tackle at once, so Orlando Mayflower General Manager, Ed Fitzgerald recommends spending time getting to know one part of the city at a time.

As we mentioned, Orlando is one of the most visited cities in the country, peaking around holidays and school breaks. This means roadways see a fairly dramatic change in traffic week to week. We recommend learning several routes to and from work or other commonly traveled-to destinations to make avoiding any congestion easier.

Orlando, FL also is uniquely positioned in the middle of the state, making beaches on both sides accessible. While they are all great, one “hidden gem” is Indian Rocks Beach, just south of Clearwater on the Gulf side. It’s not as visited by tourists, which makes it a more enjoyable experience for those looking for a low-key beach day.
