So you are considering moving to DeBary, FL? DeBary is a quaint bedroom community where the residents are friendly and helpful. DeBary is made up of a population of just over 20,000 people at the time of this writing. As a resident and a DeBary Realtor I see the explosion of new homes coming to DeBary in which we will talk about a little later.

DeBary Community - A great reason to call DeBary home

If you're anything like me you enjoy the opportunity to meet new people while running into the ones you met previously. DeBary is a city, and it's a small town, at the same time. It's large enough so that you're always meeting new residents and small enough so that you're constantly running into the people you know!

The DeBary People

Part of what makes the DeBary community so great is the people who call DeBary home. Living in DeBary you will encounter some of the nicest, and most hospitable people in the world. The happiness of the people who live in DeBary is a direct reflection of everything DeBary has to offer. From the beautiful parks, river life, awesome weather, and housing affordability. DeBary a truly hidden gem in Southwest Volusia County.

If you're moving to DeBary from the northern states (NY, MA, CT, NJ are popular states to move from) you're sure to notice right away just how welcoming the people in DeBary are. Soon after moving to DeBary I realized right away that the personality of the town is contagious. You'll find yourself a happier person because you're surrounded by people who are happy. If you have a dog, there is a Dog Park at Gemini Springs!

The weather in DeBary, in my opinion, is perfect and a great reason to relocate from areas with colder climates.
