Ocala homes for sale: market outlook
The market for Ocala homes for sale is stabilizing, but the city’s growth rate is among the fastest in the United States. Further, with the new World Equestrian Center soon to open, even faster growth is on the horizon.
The city offers venues and housing developments to please most. Theater and arts are becoming a factor in the area’s growth. There are thoroughbred horse farms, miniature horse farms and Arabian horse farms. Clearly Marion County has earned the title “horse capital of the world”. Developments like Golden Ocala support the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Other developments offer retirement living to fit all budgets. Also, strong economic growth has increased demand for housing for first time home owners and new job seekers.
The downtown is growing by leaps and bounds. It is expected to expand to five times its current size in the next two or three years. There have also been discussions about greatly expanding the county’s infrastructure.
In addition, Ocala is only an hour away from Orlando and its many theme parks, restaurants, vacation rentals and entertainment venues.
Residents also have access to high quality medical services. Ocala Health offers excellent medical care locally. Also, Orlando Health to the south and Shands Medical Center to the north offer the highest quality of care available.
Sliver Springs and world famous Ocala National Forest offer opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Activities include hiking, swimming, picnicking, boating and much more. Further, lakes in the Ocala national forest area offer some of the best fresh water fishing in Florida.
As Ocala continues to evolve, the lifestyle options and economic opportunities it offers will rival the best offered anywhere in the State of Florida.
