I live near Valencia Country Club and recently sold a home there, and my recent visit with another buyer confirmed what is happening all over SWFL-inventory is down, it's the best value and place to live, new construction is hot, and it's a matter of time when prices will soar again.
The media misconstrues the market- the days of basement prices is nearing the end.
That's why buyers need a local realtor.
Valencia is finishing up the phase on Birdie Drive, and there is one more parcel under negotiation and it will be the last phase, then gone. NO MORE new homes once this is done.
The resales inventory has dropped substantially in this area, and hopefully by now, buyers realize that as equity values increased, owners borrowed against that equity, or employment status/ mortgage rates changed, etc, and they defaulted in their mortgage obligations. The resultant short sale/foreclosure sales have been devoured and there isn't much left.
This is not a bundled golf community but one of the few with pay-as-you-go at a great price, not to mention the fantastic amenities. It is also near three schools, EMS, Fire Dept. Sheriff's station, and 15 minutes from a hospital.
Unless one needs to trod every day to the beach or wade thru the congestion of 5th ave South traffic, this is the place to be! (or to explore some other local communities)
Your local realtor,
The only thing limiting values in the area is the distance from town. Many buyers select smaller homes on smaller lots to be closer to Naples and beaches.
If Valencia fits your lifestyle it is a great option. I would be happy to help you find your dream home in Valencia Country Club or an alternative location that fits you persoanl needs.

There are some beautiful homes in this development. There are many short sales and foreclosures, but the development is very nice and kept well. There are no issues with Chinese Drywall, just a developer building at the wrong time. It's a great place to buy and make an investment. Contact me if you have any further questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.
It had an un-kept, hillbilly vibe in there. I drove down to the cul-de-sac and there were beat up cars in the driveways, dirty looking kids running all over, big hillbilly (ratty looking) pick up trucks and lawn furniture was camping chairs. ( nice touch)
I can spot the trashy rental communities a mile away and that is absolutely what is going on there and that is why the prices are s low for big homes.
I wouldn't even consider buying a home in there.
Want more specific information, contact me directly.
There have been many short sales and foreclosures in this neighborhood only because most of the people bought in there at the peak of the market and are upside down in their mortgages,not because of Chinese drywall issues. I too, am a full time licensed real estate agent that lives about 2 minutes from this community. I watched it go up.
There are great deals to be had in there. The community is very close to newer elementary, middle and high schools along with a newer university. The great thing about this community is that it is a golf community but it is on a public golf course so you don't have to absorb the fees while living there. There is also a guard at the gate! The fees there are nice and low.
There is a link to my website for you to either ask more questions or search the listings. Feel free to call or email me with any more questions and I will be happy to help you. Good luck in your quest!
