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.
The views from this home are unparalleled, offering not only a view of the Gulf of Mexico, but also beautiful views of the East Pass and Destin Harbor. The community has several amenities which include; two community swimming pools, a beach pavilion, tennis courts, and more than 3,000 feet of sugar-white sandy beaches. Guests and owners can also hop on the water taxi for a short boat ride to the many Harbor-front restaurants, shopping, deep sea fishing, and family activities. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of this one of a kind beach paradise. There is no better place to live on the Emerald Coast!
You've likely heard of "green space"– areas in cities or residences that are full of plants that bring us a little closer to nature. Author and marine biologist Dr. Wallace Nichols uses a new phrase – "blue space"– those of us familiar with water understand.

Republicans say the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a massive tax cut that will spur investment, jobs, and economic growth. But Democrats counter that the bill is a brazen effort to loot the American government, with an eye toward unraveling social safety programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
But having passed the House and Senate, the bill is now a President Trump signature away from becoming the law of the land, so what does it mean for you, the taxpayer?
In the past, tax reform efforts have tried to simplify the tax code and remove special-interest deductions that have become entrenched since the United States ratified the income tax in 1913. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act makes no attempt to simplify the code; if anything, it does the opposite, introducing new loopholes while making only a minor effort to reel in special interests.
The bill’s primary function is a massive corporate tax cut, dropping the rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Individuals will get an across-the-board cut as well, albeit small, but in an attempt to offset some of the $1.5 trillion cost, the individual cuts expire after 2025.
How does this impact you? We’ll walk you through the basics:
