I am doing searches for Lakeland, FL homes for sale in an attempt to locate the perfect house for my family. We have been renting houses for the past nine years. Even though renting has been good to us and our lifestyle, we have decided that it was time to look into something a little more permanent. Our oldest daughter is about to start school next year and my wife and I decided that we do not want to be bouncing around and changing schools with her or our other children. We are not exactly sure what we are looking for yet though because we are not done expanding our family. We have two children right now and know that we both want at least one more. I think we will look for something that is going to have an additional bedroom just to be on the safe side. I would really hate have to move again in a couple of years because we needed more room. I think that if we can manage to find a house we really like, that we would be able to make just about any situation work in our favor. It is just a matter of finding a house that has the setup we are looking for.
