Why are homes in Rockledge, Florida so expensive?

house money The title is a question I was asked today. Having lived in Rockledge for the past 13 years and a fulltime real estate agent in Rockledge and Viera for almost 6 years, I can answer that question.

It all depends on your perspective. If you are a seller you think the prices are extremely low. As a seller you wonder if you are not giving away your house!

As a buyer, especially a first time buyer or someone new to the area, the answer is not nearly as clear.

When I was in the U.S. Navy I remember the term “sea stories.” It was when the “old salts” would tell new crew members about how it used to be.

Here is a real estate “sea story.” Prices in Rockledge are very attractive when compared to the 2003 to 2006 period!

The Rockledge area includes parts of what is known as Viera – newer construction. Parts of Rockledge include the very scenic and exclusive Indian River frontage properties along Rockledge Drive – very exclusive and expensive. Rockledge includes the the Summer Lakes development of million dollar plus homes as well as several other Viera developments.

The Rockledge area includes other older established neighborhoods like the ones surrounding the Rockledge Country Club area. Rockledge includes Levitt Park and Georgetown, two older developments. The prices vary in each of these developments.

My post is not all inclusive as there are plenty of other areas in Rockledge, the oldest municipality in Brevard County, Florida.

The bottom line is there is a home in Rockledge, Florida for every budget! Call me, I will gladly send you some listings.
