Homestead Real Estate , Demographics, and Information

About Homestead, FL

Originally called Homestead Pineland, Homestead has become a community known for its perseverance and unity in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in 1993. Through the combined efforts of government, residents and businesses, Homestead has re-emerged as a primary agricultural area. Local farms supply a significant portion of the winter fruit and vegetable market to the eastern part of the United States. Often referred to as one of the "Gateway Cities" along with Florida City, Homestead is in close proximity to Miami, the Florida Keys, and the Everglades National Park. Accessibility to more urban areas allows residents to enjoy the amenities of a sophisticated metropolis without actually living in one. A blend of single-family homes, condominiums, and farm homes enjoy a lush and scenic backdrop of Persian limes, mangoes, and other tropical fruits. Recreational opportunities are excellent. Residents enjoy easy access to the Florida Keys and Everglades, although outdoor activities and facilities are available in Homestead.
