Buying on "promised" growth is not a good thing...

I seem to run into all sorts of questions these days about growth, new developments and property restrictions.

As a rule I answer these inquiries with "just the facts."

Just yesterday I received a call from an out of area person inquiring about the local Viera  55+ community of Heritage Isle.

Apparently they had purchased in a nice area (somewhere else in Florida) a couple of years ago with the understanding growth was coming.  Oh, they love the community but without local restaurants and shopping the long drives are not what they were looking for in retirement they are not happy.

I explained Viera is a planned unit development

It is a master planned community with planned growth and restrictions within the development.

There have been new shopping facilities like The Avenues Viera built and thriving.  There is a new hospital (Viera Hospital) and nearby medical facilities.

There are golf course nearby like Duran Golf Course.  There are plenty of restaurants and more being constructed even now.  There is easy access to I-95 and nearby tourist spots in Orlando.  Port Canaveral is less than a half hour away.  The beaches are nearby as well.  There are new schools like Viera High School.  There is minor league baseball.

And Viera continues to grow.

It seems many of the inquiries come from out of area folks who want to move to a new area "like Viera" in Brevard County, Florida.  But many want it without homeowner associations and the inevitable "rules."

Unfortunately, that is much like asking for cheesecake with zero calories.

If you are considering a move to central Florida, let me introduce you to the Viera area!  Call me at 321-693-3850 or email me.
