Looking for a fun, safe, and overall fabulous new community to call home?

You may be feeling overwhelmed by all of the new communities that Florida has to offer. It seems like there is a new one popping up every time you turn around these days.

However, not all new communities are built equally. Each of them has distinct attributes which set it apart from the rest.

There is no need to let yourself get overwhelmed or bogged down by all of the choices out there. We’ve prepared this guide just for people like you to help make sense of your search so you can enjoy the process of finding the perfect new home for you and your loved ones here in Florida.

Check Out The Local Schools

If you have children, the local schools and their distance to the neighborhood should play a prominent role in your choice. Just think how disappointed you might feel if you fell in love with a house, but it meant sending your children to a school with terrible ratings.

Look at the Crime Rating

Crime is another important rating to pay attention to when searching for the right neighborhood. Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by first impressions. Some of the nicest houses actually back up to a not-so-safe neighborhood or street that could compromise your peace of mind and hurt your resale value.

Talk To The Neighbors

One of the best ways to get some valuable insights into the lifestyle of a community is to talk with the neighbors if at all possible. Ask them questions like “how long have you lived here?”, “what is your favorite thing about living here?”, and “what would you tell someone considering buying a house in this community?”.

Don't Forget The Amenities!

Depending on the community that you choose, you may be able to benefit from some fantastic amenities. This is more common in new construction communities and condos. In some of the nicest new construction and condo communities like this one, you can expect to find amenities like a pool, spa, fitness facility, private beaches and boat slips. While these amenities may not be an absolute necessity for everyone, they can add an immense amount of value to the property and your lifestyle.

The Newer The Better

While nobody likes to think about it, living in Florida does mean having to deal with the occasional tropical storm or hurricane. When Mother Nature does strike, it is always best to find yourself in a new construction condo because the structures themselves are safest, and you face the least amount of risk for loss or property damage.
