Hawks Point Manor Homes in Ruskin, Florida

Hamilton Kitchen River BendHawks Point Manor Homes are located south 19th Avenue NE, just west of Interstate 75 in Ruskin, Florida.  This location is location in just minutes from Tampa Bay.  Amenities include gated entries, a clubhouse with a resort style swimming pool and fitness center, playgrounds, a pavilion, and a dog park.  There is an annual CDD fee of $83.25 per month and HOA fees of $58.66 per month, which appear reasonable considering the community amenities  provided.  The community features a variety of single family homes with eight floor plans:

  • Pricing from $172,990s to $208,990s
  • Square footage from 1,353 to 2,352
  • Bedrooms from 3 to 5
  • Bathrooms from 2 to 3.5

In addition to the following schools, there is a community college (HCC) within walking distance of the development.  Currently, the schools include the following:

  • Cypress Creek Elementary School
  • Shields Middle School
  • Lennard High School

Although the above schools are the currently assigned to the subject development, I would suggest that a potential buyer check the Hillsborough County website to verify the schools and more information (school grades, school calendar, etc.). If you are relocating to Hillsborough County, you can find your school at click here as well as the school calendar at click here.

Shopping for a large production or custom home builder can be a daunting task.  Start by defining what architectural styles appeal to you and then seek out the builders in your area who offer those styles.  Due diligence is essential.  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.

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).
