The Heritage Isle community in Viera (Melbourne, Florida) - long known in the central Florida region as the 55+ community - offers several choices of housing for those relocating to central Florida. Although most look at the single family detached houses as well as the patio/villa style homes, there are excellent condos available as well. Priced between $135,000 and $162,5000, these waterfront condos are situated next to the 21,000 club house facility and tennis courts.  Many of these units overlook the fairways of the exclusive Duran Golf Club to the east...an amazing sunrise!   All units are two bedroom two bath with square footage ranging from about 1,100 to 1,400. In January 2010 there was one unit that closed in the condo complex for $149,000. For information on Heritage Isle or an...

Viera Florida, located in north Melbourne, Florida, has two distinct areas separated by I-95 in Brevard County. Although the separation is not as distinct now that a flyover opened over Interstate 95,  the newer homes and greater green space in Viera West still differentiates the two areas.  With golf, shopping, excellent newer schools and marks, Viera offers its residents a superior, relaxing lifestyle. While most of the homes in Viera East were constructed from the mid 1990s to the early 2000s the homes (and condos) in West Viera were constructed from around 2004 to currently under construction homes.   Over the past 13 months the average sales price for a single family home was about $195,000 with about 28 homes being sold each month (about 360 in 13 months).   The price is less than...

http://www.thinkbigworksmall.com/mypage/player/tbws/23088/1459883 I know the government is trying to revamp the HAMP program but if this kind of stuff in the video is happening, then what is the incentive for induced loan mods? Maybe now that the FDIC is having to borrow from the FED might be the catalyst? Post your feedback   Steve Vitani www.stevesellsflorida.com Power Realty, LLC Florida

We recently went out and had dinner at the Pizza Gallery & Grill located at 2250 Town Center Ave Suite 113 in the Avenues Shopping Plaza in Viera, Florida. The Pizza Gallery & Grill has been serving for 20 years.  They serve the best in italian food, fish, steak, salads and sandwiches.  They have been voted the best pizza. It's no wonder, they have more toppings, types of cheeses and pizza crusts than you can imagine.  Create your own. You can pick from 11 different cheeses and 19 different sauces. For dinner, I chose the calzone stuffed with pepperoni, ham and black olives. It was much too big for me to finish.  I had to have them wrap it in a doggie bag so I could take the leftovers home. My daughter ordered the stuffed shells. The presentation was gorgeous.  The shells were excellent...

Have you ever gone into a house or condo only to see football memorabilia everywhere? The greatest sports fan ever lives here! The kitchen with high tech appliances and gadgets everywhere? Obviously the home of a gourmet cook. Ever glimpse a garage full of "equipment?"  Oh yes, the super handyman lives here!   If you have been in the market searching for a new home, you know what I mean here....There can be a fine line between these two things - selling your house and your lifestyle.  I will admit that there are times when you are throwing in a lifestyle with the house. That is just an additional marketing point! Selling in a 55+ community in Viera Florida? Then you should be promoting the lifestyle as well as the house. Selling your golf course community home such as Baytree in Suntree...

The Lions Club has always made it simple; when it comes to meeting challenges - they serve!  And what a better way to do it then in December when some people need assistance the most.  How are they contributing this time of year?  By hosting a Super Garage Sale. The Viera Lions Club invites everyone to a Super Garage Sale.  The proceeds aid the needy sight and hearing impaired people of the community.  The garage sale will be held on Dec. 5, between 8 am and 1 pm in the parking lot of the Viera Home Center, which is on the northwest corner of Viera Blvd and Murrell Road in Viera.

This article is part of "The Patrick AFB Online Relocation Package".Many families PCSing to Patrick AFB, end up finding their home in Viera. I think some of the main reasons are that Viera has a lot to offer and it is within a reasonable commute time to the base (15-25 minutes).Viera is a master plan community that started home building in the early 90's and is still building today. Currently Viera has about 19,000 residents and when it is completed will cover about 22,000 acres. It has a large variety of homes starting just under $100,000 up to $1,000,000+ all within a few miles of each other. The various neighborhoods cater to many different lifestyles and the whole area is anchored by a central commercial / government area. A great amount of green space has been left with interconnec...

When relocating to a new area you can be at a disadvantage when you need to find a local expert such as The Dental Health Professionals at Viera.  Need to know who the local "go to" professionals are in ayour new area?  Ask your real estate agent.

The 55+ community of Heritage Isle in Viera (just  north of Melbourne, Florida) is the "best kept secret in the Florida 55+ active lifestyle market."     The 55+ community of Heritage Isle has been named one of the top 100 retirement communities a couple of times by Where to Retire magazine, most recently in 2009.   After all the location is superb: 40 minutes to Orlando, 20 minutes to the cruise ships at Port Canaveral, two hours to Tampa , a day trip to Miami!   So what does Heritage Isle offer?  This gated master planned retirement community is located in the planned unit development of Viera in Brevard County, Florida.  The Heritage Isle community features several styles of residential dwellings including condos, villa style homes, and single family homes (some over 3,000 square fee...
