Go West To Growth

In Viera & Suntree

The future is rosy for real estate

“Go west, young man,” once recommended Horace Greeley. The New York Tribune founder was referring to the American West, but the suggestion also applies perfectly to Brevard County real estate.

If you want to follow the action, go west…to Suntree and Viera. “The growth is west,” said Cyndi Jones, realtor and sales manager with National Realty of Brevard, the largest independent brokerage firm in the county. “We have everything right here, and we’re so close to the interstate and to Orlando.”

While some communities are still reeling from the recession, Viera and Suntree, on the other hand, are blossoming like a field of flowers. “We’ve turned the corner,” added Jones. “The existing inventory is now at 2006 levels. Housing starts are up and people are waiting to buy homes.”

The future is indeed rosy for 32940 real estate, where builders such as Christopher Burton Luxury Homes are busy keeping up with the demand for their high-end residences. Burton’s Private Collection model, located at the exclusive Wyndham at Duran enclave, was featured in this fall’s Parade of Homes, but even before the Parade got started, the company had already sold four of the $900,000-plus houses. Burton currently has ten residences under construction at Wyndham in the $700,000 to $3million range.

As more homeowners set their sights west to the 32940 corridor, retail businesses and healthcare providers have followed suit, adding even more amenities to one already rich with conveniences. The affordable commercial real estate market additionally attracts employers, so many 32940 homeowners are fortunate to be able to work, play and shop within minutes of their homes.

“We’re having a blast right now,” said Carla Casey, regional manager for Brenner Real Estate Group, one of South Florida’s most respected independent real estate companies. The company’s Suntree branch manages Imperial Plaza Business Center, the Centre at Suntree and Suntree Plaza, in addition to other commercial facilities.

“We’ve done more business in the past few months than we’ve done in the past three years. Things are really happening.” Casey points to companies such as Atex, which earlier this year moved its North American headquarters to the 32940 market. Startup businesses are at an all-time high, and these new companies seek the affluent market found in the 32940 zip code.

Residential buyers believe they can get bigger, newer homes in the 32940 area than they can afford beachside and they need not worry with sky-high insurance rates and the wear and tear of the salt air. The ocean is never far, anyhow, for the Pineda Causeway interchange at Interstate 95 places beachside amenities within minutes of any 32940 community.

Because options are so diverse, navigating the 32940 real estate market calls for the guidance from professionals such as Brevard Property Management & Realty Group, a full-service real estate brokerage firm that specializes in sales, rentals and property management . “We strive to do our best in everything we do,” said broker Billie Simmons, who co-owns Brevard Property Management with broker Maureen Roche.

The two partners represent a total of more than a quarter century experience in real estate and property management. The firm also provides tenant screening, computerized accounting, multiple listing service, attorney-approved leases, new listing notification and free home evaluations. “Being a good real estate agent means much more than showing houses and making a sale,” said Roche. “It entails great insight into people’s needs and preferences and staying the course with each and every one of our clients. We are known for following through each real estate transaction from beginning to end with integrity and personal service.”

National Realty of Brevard, with offices in Suntree/Viera, Indialantic, Melbourne and Palm Bay, offers one-stop shopping for all real estate requirements, be it relocation services, new construction, commercial interests and property management of residential rental units.

Trusted financial leadership is also necessary to make real estate dreams reality, whether you dream of your first home or a residence that will help you to better enjoy your retirement. Wells Fargo Advisors in the 32940 area is invested in achieving each client’s goals through every life event and investment stage.

Experienced professionals for real estate and investment advice, cutting-edge, convenient and comprehensive health care services, unique shopping experiences and a network of schools such that consistently win educational kudos. It’s all there in 32940. Where else would you want to live?
