I am a Realtor, who not only works in Kissimmee, I also live here.

Depends on where you live in Kissimmee. Be careful and check the police reports before moving to certain sections

Kissimmee is a terrific location and very near the parks and centrally located. You may also find other areas appealing so it's important for your Realtor to understand what are key factors in your home buying decision. There's a large portion of Kissimmee which is zoned short term rental, if you're looking to be in a community that isn't short term, you need to be aware of those which are. Why did you choose Kissimmee? What makes it appealing to you? What are you looking for in a community? Are you hoping to be within certain distance from certain attractions, parks, downtown Orlando, access to major highways, your job, etc? There are many other questions, if you like suggestions based on establishing your criteria, please feel free to call or email.

You should check with the local law enforcement offices for information on crime rates of any areas you narrow your choices down to.

I'm looking to move there in the 34747 zip. I have concerns with my kids going to school there I've read some bad stories. I need a high school ,middle school, and special needs elementary. The schools here in NJ are great so just want to make sure schools and neighbor hood is good before we move. Also have two dog's. Looking to rent a 4 bedroom with pool fenced yard and gated community if possible. Will you be able to help us find a home ?

Kissimmee is close the the Disney theme parks and I have sold in many nice neighborhoods, great to raise a young family but always remember that it is wise to check with the law enforcement on crime rates regardless of the city. Good Luck!

Florida has lots of wonderful cities to live in and raise a family in. Real estate agents aren't allowed to discuss crime rates so check with local law enforcement and also do your own research. Drive areas you like at different times and on different days and talk with the neighbors.
