Brevard County Real Estate Market and New Home Construction

by / Friday, 22 February 2013 / Published in Latest Blog Entries - Stanley Homes Inc.

For several years, the U.S. real estate market has been struggling, but the recent year has brought clear signs of recovery as home sales have started to gain momentum nationwide.This rings true in Brevard County, Florida, located in east central Florida’s Spacecoast region, where new home sales have started to gain real momentum. Florida was the site of a tremendous building boom in recent years, but the nation’s economic woes tempered this trend substantially. That said, new home sales are picking up all over Florida, particularly in Brevard County.

A number of communities in the Brevard County areas have seen a distinct up-tick in new home sales, including:

  • Viera, FL
  • Melbourne, FL
  • Suntree, FL
  • Rockledge, FL
  • Palm Bay, FL
  • Malabar, FL
  • Merritt Island, FL
  • Cape Canaveral

While the market was considered a “buyer’s market” starting in 2007, in 2012 prices started steadily rising. From what seemed like and endless supply of homes for sale in Brevard County has started to deplete significantly.  There’s no better time than now to view the new homes for sale in the Brevard County area and find the house that’s right for you and your family!

In Florida, including Brevard County, new homes for sale are extremely popular among buyers due to a number of factors. Of course, everyone loves the pristine qualities of a new home, but in addition, new homes offer other advantages, including:

– New homes have a hurricane-friendly structure, including strapping and bracing that will protect your home in a storm, while also lowering insurance premiums;

– New homes are free from potentially dangerous Chinese drywall, which is present in a number of homes that were built in the early- to mid-2000s.

– New homes are free from mold, which rapidly forms in Florida’s heat and humidity, particularly in older homes that have sustained storm damage due to more lax building codes that were present at the time they were constructed.

-New homes are built with the most up to energy code standards which helps save significantly on your utility bills.

-New homes have many upgrades homeowners are looking for in 2013.  While there is always the option to remodel your current home, that can be bigger project and much more expensive than you thought.

In addition, most of Florida’s new homes are built on earth that has been built-up to form a bit of a hill to promote better drainage. This makes new homes less prone to flooding and it also allows for easier septic tank installation.
