The Oaks at Shady Creek is located on the west side of US Highway 301, just south of Big Bend Road in Riverview, Florida. The community has easy access to I-75, which is the main Interstate to downtown Tampa. Shady Creek offers seven, single-family floor plans to choose from, ranging from 1,738 to 3,777 square feet. Some of the resort-style amenities include a swimming pool, playground, and basketball court. There are currently nine move-in ready homes to choose from ranging in price from a low of $217,990 (3 bedroom/2 Bath, Bourne model) to a high of $273,390 (4 bedroom/ 3 Bath with a Bonus Room Provincetown model). The HOA is only $73.78 per month and a CDD Fee of $143.85 per month.
Home prices are still very affordable in the Tampa Bay Market.
This is especially true for “Spec” (speculation) homes, which are often the best places to get the best deals. These homes are built by builders without an intended purchaser in mind (Hence the builder is speculating that they will find a builder to buy the home). Since this is a new home from a new home builder has some advantages over a buying a presale. The new construction advantages include home warranties, lower building insurance, sales incentives (ranging from upgraded kitchens to bathrooms) and closing costs (most (if not all) of the closing costs are included if the builder’s approved lender is used). If you decide to go with new construction, a real estate agent can be a powerful advocate in your corner as you negotiate upgrades, a move-in date and other terms with the home builder.
Unlike most builders, Lennar offer a home that has everything included. What does that mean for the buyer? In the case of upgrades, it is simply a matter of over pricing them above what you could get done from an individual subcontractor. I’m not saying that Lennar does not offer upgrades, but most of the “typical” upgrades in the modern home as “granite” countertops are included. Whereas, a lot of builder charge higher prices at their “design centers”. This is just something to think about when deciding on purchasing a home.
