As a grandmother myself, I can certainly appreciate your desire to be closer to your daughter's family and especially your grandson... they grow up so fast and your should not miss out on the
opportunity to play an active part in his life.
You've received lots of good responses here, however the best so far has come from
Don Shippey/ReMax Properties SW. He is being realistic about sellers not accepting offers that
are contingent upon the sale of your current home. If you own your home free and clear, that removes some of the challenges, however it sounds like you may need to qualify for financing in the event your home does not sell quickly. Meeting with a mortgage loan consultant as soon as possible is good advice so you can plan accordingly. I also would be happy to provide you with names and contact numbers of several reputable mortgage consultants in the Orlando area.
The Lake Nona area is probably the fastest growing area in all of Central FL and I believe a really choice place for future growth in home equity now that the housing market seems to be on the rebound as evidenced by the low inventory of homes currently active on the market. In addition to re-sale homes, a newly constructed home may be a good option you should consider.
If I can assist you any further, please feel free to give me a call.
Thank you for your posting on Trulia.

Lot's of "pick me" answers, but not a lot of substance. What you want is going to be relatively hard to find. I did check and there is only one house that comes close. Here are the details: http://mfr.mlxchange.com/DotNet/Pub/EmailView.aspx?r=3949765
The real problem will be finding a house that small that has it's own pool. Pools tend to be added to larger houses built on larger lots. The one I found you is actually the smallest house in the area with a pool. (I was in it a while ago and it is a very nice house by the way.)
Not sure what perfect price is to you. Other than a few short sales with ficticious prices, the days of $80 a sq ft bargains in the Lake Nona area were over long ago. With a pool expect to pay at least $110 to $120 a sq ft.
Did you know that you can check out my references and the references of the other agents that answer right here on Trulia? Just click on our pictures to go to our profiles and read what our clients say about us. Pick the person youâ€™d be most comfortable to work with. Of course I hope itâ€™s me, but if not then best of luck to you.
Good luck, Mark
Lake Nona is a growing area. I had the pleasure of touring several of the new homes in the area recently. The values are increasing due to the growth of the area, however you may be able to get new construction. Are you selling in Orlando? I can show you many different options, but it will depend greatly on what price range you are looking in. Take a second to look at my profile to see if you would be interested in working with me. I would love to an opportunity to sit down with you to discuss all of your real estate needs. Feel free to email me or call me directly and I can get you started. I look forward to speaking with you.
My husband and I would be happy to assist you in finding a home in the Lake Nona area!
We have helped hundreds of families this year and are very familiar with that fast growing area.
How soon do you look to move, and have you secured financing if you plan to take out a mortgage.
We actually used to have an office very close to Lake Nona and think its a great place to live.
Looking forward to speaking to you in person.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on my cell which is 407-432-6790.
By the way, I have the #1 Century 21 Team in North and Central Florida, and currently work out of the #1 Century 21 Office. Put us to work for you!
I am a Broker Associate in the REMAX office on Narcoossee Rd in the Outback shopping center. I wont cover the same topics already answered below. But you mention, "If you find the perfect house at the perfect price, you will put a down payment and pay the rest when you sell". You may want to speak to a lender to see if this plan will work. Almost all sellers will require a loan "Prequal", in order to consider your offer. Unless you own your current home free and clear, you may need to qualify for both payments for your suggested plan to work. Most sellers today will not accept an offer with a contingency on selling your other property in order to close.
Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss this. I will also be happy to suggest a great lender who can help you. Perhaps we can meet at my office and discuss your plans.

Most properties in Lake Nona have been built from 2000 and on. There are some older than that but not many.
A lot will depend on how much you want to pay for the property. There is certainly availability in the 3/2 but it may have to be 4 beds with the kind of square footage you are looking for.
I live and work in Lake Nona and would be delighted to supply you with further information or put you on my database and give you access to my website so you can get an idea of what's available out there.

Thanks for turning to Trulia for your real estate questions.
What would your price point be?
That of course is a tough question as the market is regaining strength and prices are increasing everyday!
Also, would you want a short sale, bank owned, traditional?
And do you want something that may require some work?
We could all set you up with listings, but you may also want to find an agent to work with you.
Thanks a million,
Charles Rutenberg Realty
