What are some of the most common recreational activities residents of your region like to partake in? Are there any specific spots they like to frequent to enjoy such to-dos?
We are so very lucky to be situated on the southern east coast of Florida. Our beaches are clean and the water is a beautiful crystal clear blue. Residents and visitors love our beaches for swimming, beachcombing, snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding, and sunbathing. Just off our coast lies multiple sunken treasures, hence the name for our region, “Florida’s Treasure Coast.” Divers find buried treasures still today. Our offshore fishing is some of the finest in the world with catches of sailfish, grouper, snapper, dolphin, and more. Our Indian River Lagoon, also known as the Intracoastal Waterway, is perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing.
If tennis is your game, Vero Beach offers a variety of communities that feature this popular sport. In fact, Dale Sorensen Real Estate is a proud sponsor of the Sorensenrealestate.com Tennis Championship, a USTA pro-circuit event, played annually in Vero Beach.
Florida is widely known for its golf courses, and Vero Beach is home to more than a dozen golf courses, both public and private. From the shorter par three executive courses, to the challenging longer courses with sweeping fairways and pristine greens, players will enjoy their games, no matter their skill levels.
Polo is very popular in Vero Beach and this sport is featured Sundays at the Vero Beach Polo Club. Players compete on world class Bermuda playing fields while the crowd enjoys both the competition and the camaraderie.
Vero Beach is a haven for those who seek a private, serene recreation as well as for those who love the thrill of the game.
Name three things those looking to purchase a new home should do even before beginning their searches.
Beginning a search for a new home is both exciting and stressful. At no other time in our lives do we have to consider so many issues. Price, area, schools, neighborhoods, lifestyle and more are all important items to consider. There are three things I urge buyers to think about first.
First, a buyer cannot even begin to look at property until they know what their price point is. This means knowing what you are willing to spend, what you are able to spend, and what you will need to spend to get what you want. Being intimately familiar with your financial information will make the home buying process quicker and easier. Once you know your price point, you can begin the search for your dream home.
We’ve all heard it before: location, location, location. Nowhere is that more important than in private residential real estate. Most people know what area of Florida they want or need to live in, but that’s just the beginning. Do you want to live on waterfront property? If so, do you prefer oceanfront or riverfront? Do you want a gated community, or do you prefer an open neighborhood? Do you like managing your own landscape and having the freedom to do what you want with your property, or do you want to live in a highly maintained community tightly controlled by an HOA? And if you have school age children, then schools are certainly an important consideration. Once you answer these types of questions, you can close in on your preferred location.
Last but not least is figuring out which amenities and type of lifestyle is important to your family. Does your family love being able to get up in the morning and jump in your own pool, walk to the beach or tennis courts? Do you want to be able to stroll downtown, shopping the trendy boutiques? Or is a family neighborhood with lots of kids and a neighborhood park important to your family?
Knowing the answers to these three topics is key to being able to find the perfect home for you and your family.
