|THE Port Orange Real Estate & Community Event Blog. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!"|
If you’re considering a move to Port Orange Florida, here are some great reasons to buy real estate in this area.
First of all, you have the opportunity to work with a first-class, award-winning, REALTOR®.
(That would be me)
But I’d also like to share with you, some of the many things this family-friendly city has to offer.
If you arrive at Port Orange from I-95, you’ll be looking at a sign indicating that the street right in front of you is named Dunlawton Avenue if you go east, toward the ocean, and it’s named Taylor Road if you turn west, toward Spruce Creek Fly-In, a lot of new construction, and many homes with acreage on the outskirts of town.
If you’re interested in new construction, I have information on the builders, maps, floor plans, price lists and anything you may need to buy your brand new home. The only other thing you’ll need is ME to represent your interests and help with negotiations, if a particular builder is willing to negotiate. Some of them are offering incentives in lieu of price negotiations, but it can’t hurt to ask. That’s where I come in. I’m here to help make the transaction run more smoothly, and look out for YOUR interests.
I’ve sold many new construction homes in this area, but I’ve only recently started blogging about them. I’ll be doing more of that in the future. In the interim, you can read these posts about a couple of new developments in the area.
Port Orange’s motto is “Unique by Choice; Not by Chance”. The primary focus in the original planning was to have a family-friendly city. This is evident in the wide sidewalks, many parks, and the overall feel of this fabulous town that I too, call home.
Now that you know the basics, and since you can look at houses or condos when you get here, as well as use my web site to find more information until then, let’s make this post a little bit more interesting. Let’s talk about what Port Orange has to offer!
On Taylor Rd., (west of I-95) the construction is occurring on not just houses, but on the roads, gas stations, shopping and more. There’s a LOT to offer there, but for now, let’s turn toward the beach.
When you pass under the I-95 overpass, onto Dunlawton Avenue, you’ll immediately see a Super Target (Yay!), Panera Bread (Yay again!), Chick fil A (I think you know my reaction) and several other necessary stores. As you continue, you’ll see the perfect stores to get you started on the preparations and decorations of your new or resale home, like Lowes, Home Depot, and a WalMart Super Center. Also on Dunlawton Ave., you’ll find a hospital, medical specialists, the entrance to Port Orange City Center and Palmer College of Chiropractic, every type of restaurant imaginable, and even a Smoothie King! (My favorite flavor is Banana Boat®) I could go on and on, but now that I’ve gotten to Smoothie King, I’m going to focus on that plaza. In that one plaza, you’ll also find a Merle Norman Studio (another one of my favorite stores), Tijuana Flats, Wine Styles, Leslie’s Pool Supplies, Firehouse Subs, Monterey Grill, Marble Slab Creamery, Bella Nail Spa, Learning Rx, and Paytas Homes (a local builder).
I focused on this plaza for starters because a couple of my favorite stops were there, but also to give you an idea of what you’ll find when you live in Port Orange. Bear in mind, I described just one, small plaza. And right next door is an Assisted Living Facility, and across the street is a Sylvan Learning Center, Lab Corp, 5 Star Day Spa, and a Pilates Studio.
I promise this won’t continue on forever, but to mention one more location, my office, Adams Cameron & Co., REALTORS® is not much further east, at 1100 Dunlawton. And we share a parking lot with Chili’s, Stonewood Grill and Coquina Bank. And all this is right in front of the fabulous community of Countryside. I can see the community lake and clubhouse from the back windows of our office.
Want to know more? You’ll have to read some of my previous posts. I guess I’m a little bit obsessed with Port Orange because I have quite a few. Why? Because Port Orange is a great place to live!
