While showing homes earlier this week at Heritage Isle, Viera’s premier 55+ gated community, I commented about Heritage Isle’s really nice fitness center within it's 19,000 club complex.  My clients also asked about other nearby fitness centers as they were not totally committed to 55+ living - yet. The first fitness center that comes comes to mind is the Health First Pro-Health Fitness complex in Viera next door to the new Viera Hospital (opening scheduled for April; open house to be held March 26.) The Health First Pro-Health Fitness Center is a two story state of the art 68,000 sq ft facility offering pools, an indoor track, fitness and nutrition classes, personal trainers, indoor racquetball courts, gyms with regulation basketball and volleyball courts, sauna, steam room, free wi-fi...

So, Are You Looking to Rent a Single Family Home in Viera,Fl? Well you might be in for a surprise if you have not begun your search. I did a search for homes in Viera/ West of I-95, minimum 2100 Square foot and 4 Bedroom and 3 Baths, and only 7 Homes are currently active and available fo rent. The Monthly Rent List Price starts at $1850 and goes up to $2500 for a larger Waterfront Pool home in Charolais Estates. Homes for Rent in Viera are moving very fast! If you are needing something right away, you need to be on the top of your game and have an agent that monitors the market activity and when a new listing arrives to the market. Often times the most desired homes are taken within a day to a few days from hitting the market. If you would like a first hand current snapshot of the ALL a...

How to Navigate the Viera Roundabout Many people traveling through Viera have questions and concerns about how to correctly navigate the Viera roundabout.  Drivers unfamiliar with this traffic pattern are confused about which lane to choose and often do not have enough time to read all the directional signs before entering the roundabout.  Here are some traffic rules and signs to illustrate proper lane choice: Before entering, yield to drivers in the roundabout. If you are turning right enter the right lane. If you are turning left enter the left lane. If you are going straight you may enter either lane. Stay in your lane; do not change lanes. In the roundabout, yield to exiting vehicles. Contact Laura Forman, Realtor, for information about buying or selling a home in Viera, Florida.

Viera Florida is one of the most desirable areas to move to in Brevard and perhaps in Central Florida! Top reasons to own a New Home in Viera Fl 1. Location! - Viera Is Centrally located in Brevard County, FL with much to offer like New Shops at The Avenue Viera, plenty of Restaurants, new A rated schools, several Golf courses, a Brand New Health First Medical complex, New Sports Complex, Parks and lots of Worship centers. All of this while being just minutes to the Water or 45 Min to Orlando, why move anywhere else? Above photo was taken in the evening at The Avenue Viera at the courtyard which is the center of attention! Live music and green market events are held there often. 2. Something For Everyone! - with 16 Communities to choose from and prices starting in the Mid $100's for Tow...

If gated, newer construction, golf course living is what you seek, consider making Fairway Lakes at Viera your next home. Having shown homes for sale in Fairway Lakes at Viera a couple of weeks ago I can attest to the attractive opportunities for Florida golf course living near Brevard County's newest golf course – Duran Golf Club! During 2010 there were six homes sold in the Fairway Lakes subdivision with an average selling price of $459,000. Some of these were re-sales and about half were new construction.   As we speak there are several new construction homes underway by Christopher Burton Homes as well as Viera Builders.  I spoke with another builder this morning about acquiring lots for construction in Fairway Lakes at Viera so I am hopeful! There are quite a few lots owned by Toll...

As of 3:00PM Wed 1/19/2011 there were 4,38 Active Single Family Homes for Sale in Brevard County, Fl Within that total there is CURRENTLY 1,429 Homes at or under $100,000 or a median price of just $69,900.....Thats 35% of the total homes below the median home prices here in Brevard...just to put this into an affordability perspective. What would a loan payment be for a purchase of $100,000 with an FHA mortgage?: $518.03 based on a 5% 30 year fixed rate excluding the upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium and Taxes/Hazard Insurance. Let's say you estimated $300 per month for the Taxes & Insurance so it would be $818.03 (keep in mind this number is strictly an estimate and would vary depending on the property) Now let's look at Renting: The Average Rent List Price for Single Family Homes in B...

For the full year the below data, will show the market was not friendly to those who owned homes in this category which took the biggest hit, however, there is a silver lining to it....THE END OF THE SLIDE! Home sales in Viera, Fl in this category over $400,000 was not immune to the lower interest rates and rebound in the economy, but things are changing fast as the inventory is declining and higher priced new homes are being constructed in Viera at levels not seen in nearly 4 years.
