Pahokee General Information
Nestled on the shore of Lake Okeechobee in Palm Beach County, Pahokee, FL is a cozy city of about 6,000 residents. Named for the Seminole Indian tribe’s word for “grassy waters,” Pahokee is a highly diverse city with a star-making high school football program and a powerful agricultural trade, not to mention some of the most affordable housing in the county.
The most affordable houses are in the mere $23,000 range, with the average for houses in the area at less than $100,000. Even with that being the case, though, the most affordable properties available in the area have beautiful surroundings with many full, healthy palm trees and large open spaces to enjoy during leisurely outings. The median age of the average resident is 33 years old, which is a good seven years younger than the age of the average Floridian. Because of this, Pahokee offers residents an array of lively events all year long. Likewise, the youthful vigor of the town and the highly affordable properties makes it an excellent place for younger families looking to buy and move into their first homes.
What has really become Pahokee’s claim to fame across the nation is that, along with nearby Belle Glade, the high school football program has sent over 60 players to the NFL. For the athletically minded families out there, that makes Pahokee an exceptional place for families with a love of football to live in and enjoy a thoroughly engaging and unique local culture. Furthermore, the homes in Pahokee often have noticeably sizeable yard space as well as easy access to routes that go anywhere in Florida that you would want to visit or commute to.
