Why Terra Vista is One of the Best Planned Communities in Florida!

Terra Visa

There are so many reasons why Terra Vista is one of the best planned communities in Florida but I am going to high light the main reasons why you should put it on your must see list. (You will understand the rest of the reasons when you do come visit…..)

The first reason that Terra Vista is incredible because it is 250 feet above sea level. Because of this, you might not find a more beautiful spot in the state of Florida. As you drive around the development, you will see natural beauty and you will also notice that it is immaculate when it comes to the landscaping. The beauty does not stop there, as you drive around the Central Ridge, you will see vistas that remind you of somewhere up north. It is absolutely incredible and that is not counting the beautiful sunsets you see at the Gulf of Mexico which is only 15 minutes away.

The second reason Terra Vista is one of the best planned communities in Florida is the amenity package is second to none. Leading the way is the 45,000 square foot Bella Vita Spa and Fitness Center with every state of the art machine known to mankind. There is also 4 golf courses, three restaurants, two tennis centers, four pools including the indoor pool at Bella Vita, along with an Activity Center that is always hoppin with activities including high quality entertainment during the season. There is also the new Tiki Bar that is a bunch of fun especially when there is live entertainment. I can go on and on but I am sure you can see from the picture of the Bella Vita that the amenity package is world class but the residents are even more fun and that is why you need to definitely come and visit Terra Vista Realty.

Another reason why is that there is no traffic and no hassles but you are close to the water, have all the day in and day out necessities within minutes including health care, and you are within 70 minutes of why 70 million people come to the state of Florida a year to visit. That means you are a stones throw away from Orlando with her theme parks and world class shopping. You are 70 minutes away from Tampa and her world class beaches, professional football, baseball, and Gasperillo. As you probably have guessed, both Tampa and Orlando offer numerous other entertainment options such as Broadway Across America Shows along with numerous concerts. But the good news is that you do not live in the hustle and bustle of these metro areas but they are close enough to enjoy their perks.

Terra Vista is 250 Above Sea Level. Yes, there are hills in Florida!

You are 30 minutes away from all the big box stores and the Paddock mall in Ocala and you are 60 minutes away from Gainesville and all her fun. But more importantly, there is a ton of activities just outside the gates such as a 46 mile paved Withlacoochee Bike Trail which is one of the best trails in the state. If fishing is your thing, you are within 15 minutes of world class salt water fishing and 15 minutes from great freshwater fishing. Staying with the water theme, since it is so close to the Gulf of Mexico, you are able to enjoy boating, kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Or if you just want to catch an incredible sunset, it is all within minutes. They don’t call this area The Nature Coast for nothing, there is also numerous other outdoor activities to be involved in such as hiking, birding, and photography. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that there are so many festivals and art shows around the area throughout the year that you can be as busy as you want to be.

I almost forgot about how awesome it is to ride your motorcycle throughout the area. Because there is no traffic and there is incredible beauty, riding is a very popular pass time in this area. Related to riding is of course cruising your classic car and as you probably have guessed, it is a very popular past time for the residents of Terra Vista.

SIDE DISCUSSION– Every buyer that comes into contact with me always asks about foreclosures and short sales. Please see my blog on the subject. Also, there is a feeling more and more that you can do most of the work yourself, why? As a buyer, my expert services are complimentary. Please see my blog on this.

When is comes to having fun, Terra Vista ranks right up there with any planned community but the good news is that it is an awesome area to kick back and take it easy. That is the beauty of this area is that it is

As you have noticed, it is incredibly beautiful and it is a ton of fun but I am sure you want to know if the developer is financially sound and are there hidden costs. And I am sure you want to know how the pricing stacks up against other planned communities. The good news is that all the coming answers are very positive. I am a PGA Golf Professional, so I have been involved with numerous planned communities throughout the state and have played so many more, so I am familiar with the horror stories you hear about developments going out of business or when you are signing your purchase agreement, the salesperson lets you know that there is a CDD bond attached to the community. The bottom line, Terra Vista Realty is in great shape financially and all the amenities have been paid in cash by the developer and there is no CDD bond attached to the development. Terra Vista has numerous years before the development is passed on to the residents but the structure is in place. The bottom line is that the developer is in great shape.

FIRST QUARTER TERRA VISTA UPDATE

As we speak, there is a lull in the action with sales. There are a lot of lookers but not a lot of buyers. This tells me two things. Number one, there are a lot of folks just starting the process and plan to make their purchase later in the spring or summer. (65% of the homes are sold within a 4 month period of April, May, June, July) Or number two, their expectations are not in line with what is available today. Maybe they have been in the market for a while and are a bit disappointed that the price has went up.

Here is the deal, if you are truly in the market for a new home and you are in the first camp of not wanting to do anything until later, you need to rethink your strategy. I have seen it for three years now, where there is a lot of looky lou activity proceeded by a buying frenzy. I can tell you by first hand experience that sellers are always frustrated and will be more willing to take a little less at this time than their expectations but not crazy. Case in point, I have had numerous ridiculous offers and my sellers have tried to meet them at a fair price and the buyers have not come up. What is going to happen is as soon as the spring selling season hits, these sellers will get their prices and the low ball buyers will have to come up where as if they were reasonable now, they would have a paid a few thousand less for the home. Bottom line, the sooner you can come to the table with a fair offer, the better chance that you will get a better deal on your home.

Now if you are in camp two, and you are frustrated and feel like you missed an opportunity, you need to rethink your expectation level. I can go on and on but unless there is a national economic issue, the prices are going to stay the same or rise a tad. With that being said, our area is definitely in a time warp but as we move forward, there is going to be more and more people finding us that were looking in other areas of the state, which will increase demand. Bottom line, Florida overall is a hot market because of our low cost of living and weather and Terra Vista mirrors this. Prices will not be falling so you need to come to terms and make a move.
