Living in the beautiful state of Florida is like living in paradise. For many people, Florida is a dream vacation destination filled with hopes of enjoying all that the state has to offer. But for those lucky enough to live in or move to the Sunshine State, Florida is simply “home”.
The diversity of the state is a draw for many people looking to plant roots in the Florida soil. Miles of beaches bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico offer plenty of options for sea lovers and boaters. Nationally ranked golf courses coupled with thousands of miles of preserves for outdoor activities are a draw to many who enjoy an active lifestyle. Florida is also known for its abundant wildlife and unique natural resources such as it’s crystal clear springs that manatees call home.
Because of the state’s immense popularity among families and retiring adults, home builders have become skilled in meeting and exceeding the expectations of their clients. With an understanding of what makes living in the state special, developers have planned communities that embrace the many reasons home buyers want to live in Florida.
Planned communities are not a new concept. Dating back to the 1800’s in Chicago, such communities formed and continue to thrive. Today, developers infuse modern conveniences with natural elements, giving home owners everything on their wish list. New home plans merge effortlessly into the landscape, and provide highly sought-after benefits such as innovations in energy efficiency and cutting edge electronic features.
Neighborhoods that boast shopping districts and resort style clubs provide people with the ability to shop where they live, developing connections with the local businesses. In many cases, it is this reason alone that is so attractive to prospective home buyers. The feeling of “community” is enhanced by scheduled events and activities that foster relationships with neighbors and provide attractive entertainment options.
Florida boasts some of the best golfing in the nation with many award-winning courses being in planned communities. The ability to golf in your own community offers an array of perks for those who love the sport. And speaking of sport, what better way to enjoy sport fishing and boating than right from your community. But if a simpler, slower pace is desired, there are also smaller communities with new home construction right in the heart of natural preserves.
The stylish and innovative concepts of today’s home builders and planned community designers are affording customers countless options. From homes with welcoming front porches along tree lined streets, to community gathering spaces and resort style dining and shopping, Florida’s newest planned communities offer something for everyone.
