After living in Ft. Lauderdale for over 50 years and being a Realtor in that city for over 20 years, I moved to Ocala to get away from the fast pace, unfriendly people and high cost of living. Ocala is a dream come true. Talk about affordable housing, Ocala has it. You can have a new home built for less than $125,000 and nice existing homes sell for as low as $80,000. The people are VERY friendly and although the city is growing rapidly, traffic is very light compared to South Florida. My wife and I Love Ocala.
