Communities in Southwest Florida are like designer clothes. Each one has a different personality and feel. They are not one size fits all. One must carefully consider a variety of variables and select the one that will best suit their family and lifestyle. Considerations may include house, villa, or condominium. Location and distance to work and schools may be important. Deed restrictions to keep the properties pristine and values high may be preferred or perhaps you wish to keep a boat and trailer at your home. Maintenance free communities maintain the lawn and sometimes the exterior of the buildings. Some communities are gated and have grand entrances while others do not. Amenities are as diverse as communities. One may desire a golf course, community pool, tennis courts, fitness center, bocce ball, playground, community center, etc. The general rule of thumb, the more services and amenities, the higher the Association fees. Viewing the following communities will give you an overview of some of the offerings in the area. Call Gulf Shores Realty at 941.488.6644 to find out specifics on these and other communities.
