A naturalist's delight, the city of Inverness lies about 60 miles due north of Tampa on the Gulf coast. Immediately to the east is the 22-mile Tsala Apopka chain of lakes. Immediately to the west is Withlachoochee State Forest. A small community with a host of amenities that include a year-round tropical climate and the famed Florida sunshine, Inverness is a delightful place to call home.

A Snapshot of Inverness

At the last federal census the population count stood at some 6,700, the median age at 54.6, and the median house value at $70,000. That picture, however, like most statistical tallies, is somewhat dry and not altogether accurate. Incorporated in 1919, Inverness sits on seven square miles of hilly terrain (yes, Florida isn't as flat as one might think).

While scarcely metropolitan, of course, Inverness does have a downtown, an historic courthouse, a vintage Victorian hotel, and is the Citrus County seat. A haven for those who want to escape the concrete and traffic and high-rise buildings of metro areas, Inverness has a great deal to offer. Among its amenities are a simple lifestyle, a host of recreational venues, and a vibrant community life that includes its Christmas boat parade and an annual crafts festival.

Your search for property in Citrus County, of course, will come more easily once you link up with a local realtor. His or her savvy with the area, not to mention finger on the pulse of the real estate market, will certainly heighten your chances of finding your dream home. With so few properties typically available (perhaps 100), and a selling price range of $70,000 up to $700,000, you'll want to make the most of available expertise. Relocation is, after all, enough of a chore on its own.
