The orlando NEW vacation homes market

Developers of most of the new Orlando vacation home communities in the Disney area have been forced further out from the theme parks by the availability of land. Storey Lake is a notable exception. It boasts the quickest and easiest drive into Disney, better even than the historically 'close' communities like Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms, which now have to deal with frustratingly heavy traffic throughout the day. Storey Lake residents avoid the congested US 192, and cruise into Disney along the traffic-free Osceola Parkway.

Developers have returned to Florida in force in the last few years after the 2008 recession, and they are building new style resorts that are changing the face of the vacation rental market. These new communities include water parks, more leisure facilities, bigger clubhouses and on-site features that will be highly attractive to the more than 50 million vacationers who come to Orlando each year.

Several national builders with extensive experience of vacation home communities have current projects in progress, including Lennar Homes (Storey Lake and The Retreat at Championsgate), Pulte Homes (Windsor at Westside and Solterra Resort), Park Square Homes (Veranda Palms and Bellavida Resort), and D R Horton (Solterra Resort).

The top seven communities already selling and under construction include Storey Lake, The Retreat at Championsgate, Solterra Resort, Windsor at Westside, Sonoma Resort, Bellavida and NEO Golden Palms/Veranda Palms. These seven resort communities represent the best options currently for investors who are looking to generate rental income sufficient to cover their costs of ownership. Other new and recent communities in the Disney area include Encore Resort at Reunion, Margaritaville Resort, Providence, Festival Resort, Serenity, Magic Village and West Haven. These communities may perform less well as a source of net rental income for one reason or another, so they may be more suitable if you are looking for a second home for your own use, of if rental income is only a secondary consideration.

Established Communities

If one of these fabulous new resort-style communities is not for you, or if your budget will not stretch this far, there are also plenty of bargains to be had on the established vacation home communities like Windsor Hills, Windsor Palms, Terra Verde, Emerald Island and other gated communities.

There are even some resales starting to appear on the new communities now, often sold furnished and with advance rental bookings in place. Hightower Realty can provide details of all current resale listings and prices on any of these communities and many others. Email us with details of what you are looking for.

New communities, latest updates

A new condo building was released for sale early September. Details on the Storey Lake page. Also, several resale furnished townhomes for around $340,000 to $350,000. Also some 5 bed Alexander Palm single family homes on the first phase (close to the clubhouse) from $475,000.
There are 3 Atlantic floor plan homes on Solterra Resort for delivery later this year at under $400,000. This model is 5 bed, 4 1/2 bath, 2828 sq ft, with a heated pool. I can double up on my cash rebate on any of these three fantastic homes, so $20,000 cash back in your hand at closing! Ask me for floor plan, homesite details, photos, etc.
There is a lake view 7 bed single family home listed on the first phase of Windsor at Westside for $475,000.
Resales on Veranda Palms start around $280,000 to $320,000 for 4 bed homes of various sizes, and from about $375,000 for a 6 bed 2800+ sq ft home.

Top Tip For Buyers

NEVER walk unaccompanied into the sales office on any new vacation homes community. If you do, you will pay many thousand dollars too much. If you are accompanied by a buyer's agent you will usually be able to negotiate a better price, additional incentives and cash back. If you want to save $20,000 or more, ask me for details.
