Sept. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- Cape Coral Fl – Data provided by the City of Cape Coral Fl and the Bonita Bay Group, the developers of Sandoval, indicate new home building permits are on the rise in the city. The numbers for the year and the month of August 2011 clearly show Sandoval is the community mainly responsible for the increase in new single family home building permits.
There were 28 permits issued by the city of Cape Coral Fl in the month of August 2011. The preferred builders in Sandoval accounted for 13 of those or 46.4 percent. The results are approximately the same when comparing the year to date numbers for Cape Coral Fl. There have been 177 building permits issued in 2011. Sandoval is responsible for 88 permits or 49.7 percent
Why is Sandoval so popular? The wonderful array of amenities, which includes The Lagoon, a resort style pool area encompassing 7500 square feet may be one reason. The price point which starts in the $160,000 range is another. The three preferred builders in Sandoval offer an excellent variety of home plans to choose from. They range in size from just under 1500 square feet to over 2600 square feet. Buyers can choose the house that best fits their needs. All homes come with a nice package of standard upgrades.
Sandoval has just recently introduced a fourth preferred builder for its Stonyhill neighborhood. The subdivision offers larger lots ranging from 0.21 to 0.42 acres. The minimum home size is 2200 sq ft and many choice lots are still available. The addition of a fourth preferred builder in Sandoval comes at a good time. Stonyhill offers additional lakefront lots, something that was in short supply.
Sandoval is attracting international buyers as well as baby boomers looking for a seasonal second home or a long term investment. Owning a seasonal home in a gated community offers some peace of mind for the seasonal buyer who may have some trepidation about leaving a home vacant for a good portion of the year. The year round residents enjoy their piece of tropical paradise in Cape Coral that comes with a homestead tax as well as no state tax.
