We are geting a new mall in Titusville. It depends on your age group if you think it's getting ghost like or changing. I see changes happening all the time. Good changes.

As long as Florida remains warmer than New York, folks will be moving in this direction.
Titusville could be the PERFECT destination for those who have grown weary of dirty snow, ice and crave 32 oz drinks! (New York insider joke)

This eternal truth also means those anticipating a real estate 'fire sale' in Titisville will likely be disappointed. If you are looking for a deal, now is almost too late. There are others looking for a deal who have a published 'BILLION' dollar budget! They are paying just market value for homes in Florida. Read my Trulia blog.

So, Sam, you need to find a deal and get it closed before everyone else reads that online article.
Best of success to you.

Titusville is by no means a ghost town at all. Yes, there have been layoffs associated with the space shuttle program, but the all things aeronautical have been located here and more and more small and successful companies along with Boeing and other large aeronautical companies that supply parts to airlines are located here along with a helicopter training facility, missile launch companies that use the launch pads at Cape Canaveral, hospitals, and a brand new mall is being built in Titusville, new restaurants, a new fishing pier and award winning Max Brewer Bridge, marinas, wildlife preserve. The area is very much popular with the snowbirds coming down from the north including Canada, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey and New York to name a few and many Californian retirees are also relocating to Titusville at this time, taking advantage of some of the lowest real estate prices in the USA at this time. There are many activities, events, festivals, concerts and sporting events, some of the best fishing is found in the Indian River and our coast is beautiful. Many new businesses are building facilities on Cape Canaveral Kennedy Space Center property right now like SpaceX, Lockheed, Sierra Nevada.

Over 7000 space workers lost their jobs here in the last 2 years. It has hurt the local small business owners, Car dealers, contractors, etc. many of those affected by the layoffs lived in Titusville. There is no industry around to replace those jobs. Many haved moved away, walking away from their homes. This happened in Titusville once before at the end of the Apollo program.

it seems to be slowly coming back or adjusting to the new norm.
