Another option sometimes forgotten is purchasing a new home. Central Florida has several communities available in the area. The build out time for a new home ranges from 4-6 months. Some of the builders in the area are Cassidy Homes, Hulbert Homes, Tapia Homes, Olivera Homes, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Lennar, Nunez Homes, Harper Homes, Hickman Homes, Adams Homes, D.R.

You do not have to be on your own trying to decide amongst all of the choices. As your Realtor, I can offer valuable information so you can buy the home that is best for you. Builders just ask that your Realtor be with you on your initial visit. Let me know you are interested in a new home and we will get started.

This website provides you a quick search of homes for sale on the home page. My website also provides a very detailed Advanced Search with many of the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) fields available. Be careful not to narrow your search too much as you may miss a home you would be interested in. My website also offers the option to search by Map.

You will notice a link for each city that shows all of their homes for sale. I have also created several quick links that will show you the homes currently for sale in some of the more popular communities in the area such as Carillon Lakes, Cypresswood, Eaglebrooke, Lake Ashton, and Terralargo.
