Another key bit of info will really help narrow things down - a price point. If there's a chance you might shift between the two locations, you might like homes along the 417 which runs more or less past each. The 32824 and 32827 zip codes are along the 417 and are sort of half-way between. Knowing your price will really direct one way or another. Near the Kirkman location, Doctor Phillips, Hunter's Creek and Williamsburg provide a lot of options. Near the location off Lake Underhill, Waterford Lakes and Winter Park offer the most consistent upside. My advice is to get pre-approved for a loan if you'll take a mortgage, or set a target price, and then get in touch with one of us to do some tailored research. I'm currently working with two Lockheed couples and both are choosing the in-between route by focusing on the Lake Nona area which is growing incredibly fast right now. There is great value on existing construction and a lot of new homes as well. Welcome to Orlando!... more
Rent to own is a horrible, horrible idea for the buyer. Renting and owning should be treated as two separate transactions, not one. Wait until you can qualify for a traditional mortgage; then buy a home.
