Small town charm and big city pleasures, sun, sand and the great outdoors – if you’re looking for a town that offers a little bit of everything, you’ll find it in Odessa. The ‘census designated place’ is an area that straddles Pasco and Hillsborough Counties in Florida, and is part of one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Its 4000 residents enjoy an enviable quality of life that includes all the attractions and pleasures that living in Florida offers.
Life in Odessa features a leisurely pace that’s the perfect backdrop for a wide range of outdoor activities and attractions. The picturesque community is close enough to Tampa Bay for residents to take advantage of all the sparkling attractions of Florida’s entertainment capital, but far enough from the bustle to feel like you’re a million miles away. There are many reasons to choose Odessa for a new home, not the least of which is the wide range of home options available. There are single family homes, condominiums, townhouses and land lots for building your own custom home, in gated communities, waterfront home parks and family neighborhoods.
The economy in Pasco County is bustling as well, with unemployment and the cost of living both below the national average. Employment in a wide range of occupations is plentiful, and the county is expected to continue growing and expanding. Odessa and its surrounding cities and towns feature beautiful parks, hiking trails, waterways for boating, swimming, fishing and diving, and some of the most popular and enjoyable amusement parks in the world. Odessa is a little bit of small-town living on the Sun Coast.
If you’ve been waiting for a good time to buy a home – primary or vacation – on Florida’s west central coast, the time is definitely now. The widespread speculation and spiraling real estate prices of recent years sparked unprecedented growth, with hundreds of new properties built throughout Central Florida. Real estate is a supply and demand business – and all that growth has pushed the market into an oversupply of new and resale properties. That may be bad news for developers, but it’s excellent news for prospective home buyers who can now find Sun Coast homes in every style and type at very affordable prices. If you’re looking for relaxed living with access to world class city dining, shopping and fun, Odessa just may be the perfect jewel for you.
