If you were to conduct a survey among homebuyers on where their dream home would be located, there’s a high probability a majority of them would say a waterfront house over any other choices. Some might consider one of the homes for sale in Ormond Beach FL.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, approximately 39 percent of the country’s population (or around 123 million Americans) choose to live in counties that border the shoreline. This makes the population density of a coastal shoreline county to be almost six times greater than nearby inland counties.
Why not? The living conditions in coastal areas of the U.S. abound with fun activities, recreation and thriving economies, mostly driven by tourism. This is also the reason homes for sale in Ormond Beach FL sell like hotcakes. Buyers scramble to be proud homeowners in this famous tourist destination.
If you are thinking of relocating yourself to Ormond Beach, you may be interested in learning some intriguing facts about the area.
The birthplace of speed
While some might not gravitate to the white, smooth, hard-packed sands of this famous beach, race-car drivers certainly do. In 1903, the very first speed tournament was held in Ormond Beach. Today, it remains a certified mecca for car racing and its fans. Automobile and motorcycle racers from all over the globe test their own wheels (and driving abilities) on this celebrated beach.
If you are a racing fan, you shouldn’t miss the annual winter event in honor of the community’s speed heritage. There is also an annual car show that showcases antique vehicles and the Gaslight Parade held every Thanksgiving Day weekend.
A proud history of diversity
Beyond first glances, new residents quickly learn how diverse their new community is. During the 1900s, Ormond Beach stood out for embracing its African-American neighbors with the establishment of Liberia, a community named after the first independent country in Africa. Liberia continues to contribute significantly to the city’s proud cultural diversity.
A proud advocate of the clean-and-green program
From recycling to training, the local government strongly encourages its residents to strictly adhere to the city’s ongoing programs to preserve the environment. The city is seriously committed to reducing its global environmental impact by adopting and implementing rules of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy (EECS).
Due to the local government’s efforts and its strong commitment to environmental stewardship, the city proudly treasures its silver designation by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC).
