Vero Beach FL Homes for Sale

Gated Communities and Why You Might Want To Live in One | Vero Beach FL Homes For Sale

You’re finally ready to buy that home for sale. Great! But are you sure you haven’t forgotten something?

Finding the perfect home is like one big puzzle. Each piece is one factor that you have to consider and really take into consideration. Some of it is easy to recognize, like how much the home is, how big a budget you can afford, how many bedrooms or bathrooms are needed (or wanted), how old or how new the house is and what renovations are needed (hopefully none).

Some though, are hard to keep in mind and sometimes overlooked. One example is the land itself. Examining the area around that house for sale is just as important as the house itself.

Is it  in an area prone to flooding? Is the driveway shared with another property? If there are fences, have they been built and positioned properly? It’s a lot to take in, but when you buy a house, you can’t ignore its surroundings!

Another one is your needs. If this is a home that you intend to stay in forever, or at least a home you plan to stay in for many years, you need to consider your growing needs over time and assess whether or not this home will meet those needs.

And if someday you ever plan to put up this home for sale, you need to consider this too, right now! Do you plan to have a home office? Is there space for a home office and area to meet potential clients? Will you commute to work? How far is the commute?

Have you considered buying a home for sale in a gated community?

One of the commonly overlooked facet when buying a home is the neighborhood. When you buy a home for sale and move in, you’re not only moving into a new house, you’re also moving into a new neighborhood!

It might not sound like a big deal right now, but imagine if there was a school next door where the children arrive at 7am and start the day with a rollicking song over the loudspeaker. For some, being close to a school full of happy children would be a pleasant thing. To others, not so much.

But what if your new apartment is next to the local dump or the fire department where sirens can go off anytime day or night? And what if there was a neighbor that likes to blast his music until 4am on the weekends?

Now it’s starting to sound like a major problem, eh?

The good thing is, there is a solution for all of that. And that is living in a gated community, like the ones we have here in Vero Beach, Florida!

Homes for Sale in Vero Beach FL

The homes for sale in the gated communities of Vero Beach FL are what you’ve been looking for

Gated communities provide a variety of comforts that you won’t get in any local community. They provide security by having controlled points of entries and exits.

They also provide rules and regulations against loud noises after a certain time at night. Because of this, it is a guarantee that you won’t be bothered by your neighbors and you won’t be a bother to them too!

Aside from the privacy and security, gated communities also provide commendable amenities. The Woodfield Gated Community here in Vero Beach has a clubhouse, a fitness center, an aerobic room, and 4 tennis courts to keep that blood pumping. We also have a ballroom, billiards, an arts and crafts room and a movie theater room. In addition to this is scenic lakes and ponds for your viewing.

Oh yeah, and one more thing. We also have employees that take care of the cleaning around the community so you don’t have to!

Top 4 Retirement Home Buying Mistakes To Avoid

There are many things to consider before you start looking at Active Adult 55+ new homes for sale in Vero Beach.

Have you done your research? You need to be aware of the common mistakes people make when buying a home to retire in.

retirement-home-buying-mistakes-to-avoid_1

Making a mistake when buying one can lead to serious, long-term implications. You certainly don’t want any of those.

Here are some pitfalls buyers have fallen into. Don’t make the same mistakes 🙂

  1. Having no plans

Before you retire, you should have a plan on where you are going to settle and what kind of home are you going to buy. Do you already have an idea on how you are going to spend your retirement fund and how much are you going to save? Having concrete plans can help you avoid detours when pursuing the kind of life you want once you retire.

If you don’t have any, you will just spend your days dreaming of a great retirement home without having any idea on how you are going to get it.

With my experience as a Vero Beach real estate agent, I can help you understand your options and find the perfect home to retire in.

  1. Taking location lightly

You can always change a house, but you can never change its location.

Choosing a place in retirement to call home is no simple matter. After all, you don’t want to end up in a place that is a poor fit to your lifestyle and personality. When it comes to buying an Active Adult home, you can’t make an informed decision without experience.

Why not rent a home here in Vero Beach for the winter and give it a test drive? Pack your bags, load up the car, and wave goodbye to the cold weather and head for the warm Florida shores. Find out if you like the neighborhood and if you can stand being far from family and friends. You also need to check the availability of amenities. Choosing a house that is close to doctor’s office, hospitals, and service providers that can provide you assistance will be very beneficial.

Active Adult communities in Vero Beach offer plenty of amenities for your convenience.

  1. Choosing the wrong kind of house

The right kind of home is important when purchasing a home to retire in. To start with, a house with long winding staircase may not be a good one since it will make going around your home more difficult. For bathrooms, it is not advisable to choose bathtubs that are hard to get into.

  1. Choosing the wrong real estate agent instead of me, Karen Mathers, the best real estate agent to represent you 🙂

When buying your Active Adult home, choose the right kind of real estate agent – that will be me!

As an experienced Vero Beach real estate agent, I have knowledge in choosing retirement a home for you to buy so that when you retire you can kick back, relax, and live life to the fullest.I can give you useful advice when it comes to choosing the right kind of home for your retirement. I can find you the dream retirement home you’ve always been looking for.
