DR Horton Summerwind Trails My husband and I even have lived in some beautiful locations…a number of the most prime actual property within the country…Lake Tahoe, Crested Butte, St. Croix, East Hampton, Montauk…
It is understandable why these places are in such a hot actual property market…they’re ALL lovely.
Nevertheless, ALL of them have been missing in a method or one other.
When living in St. Croix we liked the climate (who wouldn’t), however we didn’t like the crime or lots of the “third world” aspects of dwelling in the Caribbean.
When residing on the East End of Lengthy Island (East Hampton and Montauk) we cherished the colleges and the protected neighborhoods, but the climate was just awful and the cost of residing was outrageous.
We additionally loved the energetic mountain lifestyle of Crested Butte and Lake Tahoe, however desperately missed the ocean.
The fact is…we wished all of it!
We needed the good faculties, clear and safe neighborhoods, excellent climate, an active life-style, stunning beaches, AND a low cost of residing.
So we searched and searched.
After which, we searched some extra…
We rapidly realized that someplace in Florida can be simply the group we had been searching for.
Since my husband was somewhat of a surfer, or not less than he thought he was, we centered our search on the east coast of Florida (ocean side).
However, the more folks we spoke with the extra we heard that we higher try “the opposite facet” (Gulf coast).
So we did…
I’ll always remember that first time we stepped onto that white sand beach at Lido Key (St. Armand’s Circle) in Sarasota…it was love at first sight.
It did not take lengthy earlier than we had been sitting in a real-property office asking about costs.
Sadly, we were informed that we wouldn’t get something on the seashore in our price range (my husband is a trainer and I was a homemaker on the time).
Nevertheless, we have been additionally told that what makes Florida special is that if you drive simply 20 minutes away from the seashore there are all sorts of great communities…and the very best of all is Lakewood Ranch.
Effectively, we needed to see for ourselves…
May it’s true? Might we actually discover a household group that had the whole lot we had been searching for? Would this Lakewood Ranch really be secure and clear with good schools…the place our son could ride his bike, swim, and play baseball all-year-round?
And, if this neighborhood does truly exist, may it actually be inexpensive? Would shopping for a home in Lakewood Ranch even be a possibility?
Fortunately, the answer to ALL these questions is “SURE!”
Lakewood Ranch affords the proper lifestyle…12 months-round solar, a median temperature of 72 levels, a clear and safe neighborhood, and all this at an inexpensive value.
