For those who are looking for tranquility, living close to nature, and enjoy playing sports, Clermont can be an excellent option for having the home of your dreams in Florida. It is a city that is constantly developing, and where it is still possible to find high standard houses for very affordable prices.
Located 30 minutes International Drive away and about 35 minutes from the major Disney theme parks, Clermont has a lot to offer. It is in the highest and most mountainous part of Florida, so it offers incredible views. It is surrounded by lakes and becomes a good place to practice water activities.
Clermont is a city where most of its residents are American, as it is further away from the tourist area. Because it is the choice of many famous Olympic athletes, it has been nicknamed "City of Champions. It is common to find athletes in the region, since it has good natural resources and structure for physical preparation.
This is home to the National Training Center, one of the largest training centers in the country. It is part of the Orlando Health South Lake Hospital, which has state-of-the-art sports technology, with excellent sports and fitness facilities.
The city was also chosen to house the Florida Citrus Tower, a monument to citrus farming, which is a mainstay of the state's economy.
Why invest in Clermont?
Besides having a great location, it is a city on the rise with almost 60% of its building capacity still to be explored. This means that there will be a lot of investment in the city and the real estate appreciation will be great in the coming years.
The city has a division between the seasonal area and the residential area. The seasonal area is best for those who intend to rent the house for short periods or who intend to stay there for a few months during the year and rent it out the rest of the days. This is a good option for real estate investment.
The residential area is where the best schools are located, as well as the newest and most modern developments. All of the schools are B-rated. There are many housing options there, ranging from very luxurious houses to simple ones, but which allow for excellent living. One of the advantages is the fact that the values are better than in other cities around Orlando - such as Winter Garden - while maintaining the same standard of quality.
The leisure and gastronomy options are also very good. There are also all the favorite stores available in the Orlando outlets, sometimes with better prices.
