When I’m curating a list of homes for my VIP clients, one conversation that comes up is finding a neighborhood that will be the best fit for their family. With record growth in the Tampa Bay housing market, more and more developments are popping up to meet this demand. With so many neighborhoods, it can be hard to narrow down your options, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the area. That’s why having a VIP home expert can be so helpful during this search.
One question I ask my clients is whether they would prefer to live in a brand new development or an established neighborhood. Both have their pros and cons, but many of my clients with families prefer an older, established neighborhood.
A new development can be great if your priorities are newer construction, neighborhood amenities, modern styles and appliances, and a new home warranty. The downside is that your neighbors may not know each other very well. There may not be conveniently-located schools or parks nor the sense of “community spirit” yet.
On the other hand, an established neighborhood is what it sounds like – it’s a neighborhood that already has a vibrant community. It has residents who have put down roots. Your potential neighbors are more likely to know each other and socialize, and they typically host fun community events for the whole family. Plus, any infrastructure the neighborhood has, like parks, schools, and public transportation, are already integrated into the community. The environment will be cohesive and well-maintained, with mature trees, flourishing landscaping, and peaceful ponds. What more could you ask for?
