You’ll find that Brandon Florida real estate is a fantastic investment, both for financial as well as quality of life reasons.
- History, heritage, and culture – The area was founded way back in the 1850s by settler John Brandon, who gave his name to the newly formed community. Traditionally a cow town, nowadays there aren’t many cattle farmers left. But the area retains a rural quality, though educational and cultural opportunities are abundant. Brandon is home to museums, galleries, and the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, as well as many fine historical homes and structures. All of this makes it a perfect place to explore the past while enjoying the comforts of the present. Talk to some of the lifelong residents and you’ll see why this is a great place to call home.
- Convenience – With a population of around 100,000, Brandon is big enough to have what you want, yet small enough to have real community spirit. Being near the junction of I-4 and I-75 means you’ll have easy access to both Tampa (nine miles away) and Orlando (78 miles away). The Brandon area includes Seffner, Lithia, Dover, and Mango. You’ll find lots of shopping, fine schools, and quiet family neighborhoods. Public services are excellent, and there are outstanding libraries, reliable trash pickup, and excellent police and fire protection.
- Fun – No matter what you do for a good time, you’ll find it near Brandon. Do you enjoy local festivals and celebrations? You can enjoy them year-round at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Are you into live music? The fairground theater hosts big-name pop, country, and rock musicians during every season. Interested in trying your luck? Then the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is for you. Drop a coin into one of the slot machines, or place a bet at a roulette wheel. You’ll also enjoy the bars, live entertainment, and excellent restaurants; or just spend a few hours being pampered at the full-service spa. And of course the Gulf of Mexico is always close by, with gorgeous beaches and water so clear you can almost see to the bottom.
