Moving to Florida - "You don't actually know an area because you vacation there"

"You don't actually know an area because you vacation there."  I see these words lived out many times when working with buyer prospects in Central Florida.

When I have the opportunity to speak with folks who have made the decision to permanently relocate to Florida I find they sometimes have wished that are not possible.

A couple of the most popular areas in Brevard County are Viera and Suntree.   Many like the areas because of its central area near shopping, several golf courses, the new Viera Hospital, the Washington Nationals spring training facility (and minor league baseball), and more.

A few of the things I find many of these prospective buyers want in their new Florida home and neighborhood are newer/new construction, no home owner association and a large(er) yard.

I find many have vacationed in the area for years but their research has not been totally complete because their time here has been spent vacationing!

The reality is in Suntree and Viera you will find...
  • Home owner associations.  Both areas are planned unit developments with master associations as well as individual subdivision associations. 
  • Smaller lots.  The yards in many of these newer developments are about a quarter acre or less.  Some of the larger homes are built on .4+ acres though.  The lots do appear to be larger in the older Suntree areas. 
  • New or newer construction.  Most of the homes in Viera are newer construction built from the early 1990s through current new construction.  Most of the homes located west of I-95 in Viera were built after 2004.  Suntree homes were built from around 1980 or so through some current new construction.

If you are considering a move to Brevard County, especially Suntree and Viera, contact a local knowledgeable real estate agent who can answer your questions up front about the neighborhoods and what is available.

Call  or email me if you would like information on homes for sale and moving to central Brevard County, Florida including Viera, Suntree, Rockledge, Merritt Island as well as the beach side cities of Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Indialantic and Indian Harbour Beach.
