Central Florida land

We have a small piece of land further west, south of Invereness. In general I would say you hit it right - bugs and flooding.

They go hand in hand - a lot of land in Fl is/has been drained and while it looks good it might have (after you've built) a bug &/or termite problem. The solution is to make sure you get the high lot/acreage, whatever, and then fill your house pad as high as is pratical.

I think that moist soil in the southern states means termite heaven! I am not sure how far inland hurricanes are a real threat. We have some friends in that area around Orlando and a lot of the new construction is cement block. So the termite problem would be a lot less. Along a canal you could have problems with snakes and maybe even the occasional gator!

I think the area is growing a lot right now and land prices are only going up! It is a nice area, I hate all the tolls around Orlando. They are a real pain!:D

Chuck, Welcome ---- What type of photography do you specialize in? I am a very avid shutterbug myself. I use the D1x, S2 models for my Nikon setups. I mostly do nature and action sports for local/national media and stock photogs.

Welcome to TF.COM ---- Good to have you here!

:D
