there are some fantastic lakes in the area.
I have a friend from Mt dora that always raved about his lake, and my boat is currently at another friends' house at lake Weir.
houses on the lake will be fairly pricey, I know on Lake Weir, as well as the lakes around Clermont, you are looking at 400k for a tiny house on a small lot.
however, you should be able to get a house on a couple acres off the lake for a reasonable price. and if you want to live in a cookie cutter neighborhood there are plenty of those around too.
bottom line, if I could get a job comparable to what I have now in the leesburg area, I'd move in a second.
