According to U.S. Census figures released today (June 28, 2007) Port St. Lucie, on the east coast of Florida, is ranked as the third fastest growing city in the United States with 12,909 new residents between July 2005 and July 2006. While this is down from the #1 spot for 2003-2004 and the #2 spot for 2002-2003, it is still good news for this area. The housing market has slowed down, as it has throughout Florida, but we are still leading every other city in the state.
These rankings have contributed to a huge increase in commercial development that had been lacking for many years in Port St. Lucie. New developments such as Tradition and Tesoro have added a much wider variety of life styles for residents of the area.
Port St. Lucie is located between West Palm Beach and Vero Beach and is approximately 90 minutes north of Ft. Lauderdale and 90 minutes southwest of Orlando and Disney World. With pristine beaches, two rivers and two major interior canals there's plenty of boating and fishing to please the most devout fishermen. Golf courses abound inlcuding the PGA Learning Center at St. Lucie West. In October we'll be hosting a PGA tournament at Tesoro.
It's a great place to live, whether you're raising your family or retiring. It's a buyer's market in real estate and a great time to find your perfect home whether it's a adult community, small starter home, or estate - we've got it all. There's plenty of vacant land left if you want to build your own.
