These adjectives are the core of the current American lifestyle, and we have discovered that these are prominent buyer's hot buttons. Buyers are looking for communities that ameliorate the strains of a demanding and often hurried life.
Current buyers don't want to drive long distances to work and then drive more to shop, eat, or play. Many second-home buyers and investors are also looking for these master-planned communities. They want to walk, ride a bike or take a quick trip on a golf cart to a location within their communities or to a venue close by. Entertainment, shopping, and recreation are dominant features of these communities.
Master-planned communities have been around for decades, but in the last few years, the demand has increased dramatically. Buyers of all ages are looking for micro-communities that offer beautifully landscaped environs and mixed-used properties.
Locally, communities like Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, and Sandestin are experiencing growth much like we saw at the peak. The newest developments at the beach incorporate these buyer demands. Sales are soaring in these type of communities.
Jay and I purchased a vacation home at Prominence on the eastern side of Scenic Highway 30A. We love the lifestyle, and everything on 30A is just a golf cart ride away. The convenience of the location, with the HUB at the center, and the appreciation potential were our biggest hot buttons.
