Winter Haven Real Estate

Winter Haven – “The Chain of Lakes City” – is a community of nearly 38,000 located in Polk county in Central Florida. It is an area of undulating hills and 45 fresh-water lakes swarming with life, that either border or are contained within the city. Twenty-four of these lakes interconnect forming a system of navigable waterways known as “the chain of lakes” (hence the city’s nickname).

Winter Haven is home to Legoland Florida and the Polk State College main campus. The opening of Legoland Water Park generated 200 new jobs for the community. This, and other important development projects like the Central Florida Intermodal Terminal Facility have found the perfect combination of business-friendly environment, infrastructure, and convenient location in Winter Haven.

Winter Haven is rapidly becoming a major resort area. It takes advantage of the closeness to Tampa Bay and Orlando, and the relatively low housing costs. The cost of living in Winter Haven is estimated to be about 10% lower than the US national average. The median family income is approximately $38,250 and about 70% of the residents are homeowners. The median sales price for a house is $125,800 and the median rent for an apartment is $1,180 (2017).
