Homes for sale in South Lakeland FL are generally considered as south of Interstate-4. South Lakeland FL is a little more dense and the median price of a home is a little higher in the southern portion of the city. Most of the nicer lakes and gated communities are also located here.
The largest of the communities here are Christina, Eaglebrooke and Grasslands. Those are the ones which most people search for online as well. Larger communities are most often divided into smaller subdivisions that are often gated providing additional privacy. The housing market here is very strong and land is getting increasingly scarce. Many of the homes I show to clients are slightly older but have been updated and are very clean. If you are looking for a nicer home most likely you will be purchasing a pre-owned home. Not to mention the new homes are often sold out thanks to the population increase Florida is experiencing.
I personally like all of Lakeland FL. there are some very nice communities in both the north and south portions of the city. However as a whole most people will prefer South Lakeland. There are more attractive communities, more gated communities and with the local road system it is very easy to commute to where you need to go. In most of this city everything is actually near your home but if you need to head off on the interstate or get around the minimal downtown traffic you can easily do so for less than the gas would cost you in some instances. All in all most people will prefer this area.
