Florida has seen all kinds of growth over the last decade, and the trend is expected to continue. The state has the third-highest population in the United States, and many people are flocking to the area to enjoy the year-round beautiful weather. Here are the top five fastest growing Florida cities:


  1. Sweetwater:
    There are several areas around Miami that have seen significant growth over the last five years, Sweetwater being one of them. The city’s cost-of-living index is 2% lower than the state average, making it affordable to many homebuyers. Also, the town is close enough to Miami for residents to enjoy the amenities of the city without being subjected to the area’s high rent prices.

  2. Marianna:
    Although greater Orlando and Miami have seen the most growth, the city of Marianna in Florida’s panhandle is one of the fast-growing areas of Florida. The rent is affordable, the weather is great, and the cost of living is lower than in many surrounding areas.

  3. Doral:
    If you own a home in Doral and you’re thinking about selling, now’s the time. People are looking to move to this suburb of Miami, and the number of houses for sale is no match for the demand. You will be able to sell your home for a good price, and it shouldn’t stay on the market very long. If you’re looking to buy here, prepare to bid aggressively and be patient with the market.

  4. Groveland:
    Groveland is another area west of Orlando that’s been on the rise. The cost of living is reasonable and home prices are fair. Whether you are selling your home or are looking to rent space during the winter months, Groveland offers a variety of opportunities.

  5. St. Cloud:
    Thanks to low crime rates and it’s location just south west of Orlando, St. Cloud is also seeing a rise in population. The cost of living is moderate, and you should be able to get a decent price for your home if you are selling in St. Cloud.

Florida continues to be a destination to many. The weather is great, and many people continue to look for up-and-coming neighborhoods where they can purchase a new home. Whether you’re buying or selling, use these neighborhood trends to your advantage!
