I just got a job in Gainesville, so my wife ad I will be moving to that area. We are looking for at leas 2 bed 2 bath house or great condition trailer on at least 10 acres where horses and livestock are allowed. We'd like to be within 30 min of Gainesville, but will live a little further for the right property. Our budget is $250,000.

    Here is my friends contact information and she can point you in the right direction, I would also suggest not buying anything in Alachua County because the taxes are stupid high. A 30 minute ride puts you in Columbia, Gilchrist and Levy counties depending on what side of Gainesville you will be driving to.

    If you rather sit in your car a couple hours each day in traffic 30 minutes from "home". And drive narrow two lane roads with yahoos who pass on double yellows...And anytime you want to do anything that does not involve dolts, you have to come to Gainesville anyway.:wink

    The driving depends on when you have to be at work. The problem is a bunch of folks avoid the taxes, only to crap up the roads royally and pay a bunch in fuel expenses and angst. Definitely try the drive before you buy. If your hours are flexible and you can avoid the 9am 5pm hours you may be ok.
