Moving to Florida!

So as of August 16th, I'll officially be employed by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

They didn't exactly give me a lot of time to move down there so I'm kinda rushing to find a place to live. Does anyone have suggestions for apartments in the Kissimmee area? Needs to be somewhat affordable.

Depends on what you mean by affordable. There are cheap apt. that I wouldnt park my Camaro at to visit and rental townhomes with garages.

try this site: http://www.apartments.com/Florida/Ki...25N6g5bMaQYR35

Houses are sometimes cheaper to rent down here too.

I would recommend renting a house.. there are so many down in this area and im sure you could find one with a 1 car garage or if you wanted to pay a little more a 2 car garage.

I'm kinda thinking around the $600-900/month area. I really want a house but a lot of the ones I've seen are a little too much for my budget.

I also kinda have a weird problem since I'll technically have two vehicles. I'm getting a state car in addition to my personal vehicle so I might have to pay extra for parking...

You'll still get it! It kinda sucks being farther from Detroit but I'll still be able to post stuff.

At a decreased rate of course now that I have a full time job.

Camaro Corvette GTO Tuner in Tampa Orlando Brandon

Welcome to Florida!

There's a ton of open housing in the Orlando area, but im not sure you want to live in a $600 a month area.

The weather starts to cool off by the end of October

I'm looking at a place that's $850/month. Seems pretty nice, but pricey. I can manage though.

Welcome to FL!

Can't really help much with advice on housing I'm afraid as I only know the Seminole/Volusia county area, but just wanted to say Congrats and welcome to Florida, maybe see you at some meets in the area once you arrive!

Thanks! I'll try to make it to some events in the area.

Seminole's part of my territory so you better make sure your dairy facilities are straightened up.

I'm sure both of us will be going next time. It'll be nice having a close friend to go with.

I'll try to make as many events as I can. I really liked going to Ohio events but I was always limited by school.

You know it's going to be bad when you hand the DMV lady your paperwork and she just looks at you and asks, "So you know how bad the damage is going to be, right?"
