Things to Know When Purchasing a Luxury Home in Florida

Florida is truly paradise. When you think of where to build a dream home, chances are it may be in Florida. Florida has paradise-like weather all year round and is home to hundreds of beaches. Not to mention, the Florida lifestyle is the definition of luxury. If you are thinking of purchasing a luxury home in Florida here are some key points to keep in mind. 

Location

Florida is a big state with plenty to do. There are many different cities to keep in mind when choosing a luxury home in Florida and many reasons why to choose those cities. Maybe the city you grew up vacationing in has a certain pull to it. Maybe it is the pictures you look at when it’s snowing in your hometown. Or maybe you are venturing into a new place full of new friends, new beaches and new opportunities.

Wherever you choose to land, keep in mind the location and how it complements your hobbies and interests. Florida differs from coast to coast and where you buy, will have a lasting effect on the value of your home.

When talking about luxury, think Southwest Florida. From the fine dining and white sand beaches to its many charming shopping districts, Southwest Florida has all your luxury needs. Here, you will also find championship golf courses to perfect your game no matter what season it is. Bordering the golf capital of the world, Bonita Springs is home to over 60 private golf courses and communities.

Soak Up the Sun

One of the main selling points for a luxury Florida home, that it is, in fact, a Florida home! The idea of not having to suffer long winters, shovel snow or chip ice off a windshield in the morning is what makes Florida special and what makes it attractive to buyers. Don’t look past this when purchasing a Florida luxury home. Take advantage of outdoor spaces by looking for homes with glamorous pools, creating a space for outdoor dining or just making sure you have a place to relax in the sun. 

Amenities

When buying a luxury home in Florida, keep in mind that there is more to the home than what’s found inside the walls. Many communities have private amenities only available to residents. Shop around to see what peaks your interests. 

Luxury isn’t just all about relaxation. Based on the amenities available, you may be able to pick up new outdoor hobbies such as pickleball, kayaking, biking or golf. Many high-end properties will offer sports courts, kayak or bicycle storage, as well as exclusive golf memberships.

Benefits to Purchasing a Bonita Springs Condo

Many dream of living the Floridian lifestyle but leave it at just that – a dream. If you’re longing to make living in the Sunshine State your reality, here are some benefits to purchasing a Bonita Springs condo.

The Investment

With what 2020 gave us in terms of unpredictability, many are unsure what 2021 has in store.  However, purchasing a Bonita Springs condo is something that is virtually guaranteed to be a good investment in terms of both your happiness and your wallet.

 A major trend that we’re seeing in the Florida Real Estate Market is that out-of-state home buyers are coming to Florida and drastically increasing the demand in the housing market, especially in Southwest Florida. Whether it’s the “snowbirds” extending their stay due to the pandemic, new work-from-home job trends or just the fact that Florida weather is second-to-none, the experts have seen a dramatic increase in vacation properties.

According to the Bonita Springs Market Report in January 2021, there has been a:

  • 60% increase in pending sales
  • 41% decrease in inventory with only a 1% increase in new listings
  • 10% increase in listing price per square foot

These statistics show that with a decrease in inventory, increase in sales and a steady increase in price, now is the time to buy. Thus, the decision to purchase a Bonita Springs condo is a solid investment.
