If you want to purchase an investment real estate vacation home near Disney this year, take a look at the three best Orlando vacation home communities of 2017 as you start your search!
The Orlando vacation home real estate market had a great year and the sale of vacation homes has been increasing every year. This means that new vacation communities have popped up all over Central Florida with new home construction to keep up with demand. However, not every Orlando vacation home community is equal. This year, at Viva Orlando, the top 3 best-selling communities in 2017 were Windsor at Westside, Storey Lake, and Solara Resort at Westside.
Windsor at Westside
Consistently one of the best-selling Orlando vacation communities, Windsor at Westside tops the list this year again. What makes this community so loved by our buyers?
Windsor at West Side is one of the few communities that boasts supersized home with options for up to nine bedrooms! In fact, you can choose a home with dual master suites so there is never a fight over who gets the best bed! This gives owners the opportunity to market their homes for large family reunions and group vacations. Because of this, supersized homes are a great investment choice as they give options to large groups no other accommodation can make.
Open Floor Plans
Our buyers love the open floor plans that the Windsor at Westside community offers. No matter what size home you choose, there will be plenty of space for the whole family to spread out and relax while enjoying the home. Plus, the homes come with tile floor throughout, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops in the kitchen to add an air of sophistication to the Florida lifestyle many vacationers love.
Available for the first time in 2017, the newest community on this list, Solara Resort is made a big splash amongst our buyers. Located near the Four Corners area of Kissimmee, it is just a 10-minute drive from Walt Disney World. What makes this community so loved by our buyers?
Stylish Home Options
The stylish exteriors feature an updated look of the classic Florida abode. With interesting angles, stone finishes, and modern elements, the homes in this community elegantly stand out amongst the competition. Solara Resort offers buyers a range of options to choose from with homes that range from 3 to 9 bedrooms with a private pool.
Community Amenities Galore!
The amenities at the new Solara Resort are some of the best around! An eight-acre clubhouse and amenity center in the middle of the neighborhood will include unique water attractions like the Flowrider ® Surf Simulator, kids’ interactive water slides, and a splash pad.
Solara Resort will include some of the best community food options of any vacation community.
All within the neighborhood, guests can choose from a full-service restaurant, bar, ice cream parlor, or coffee café so there will be no reason to ever leave the community for a yummy meal or tasty treat! Plus, owners and guests will also have access to burn all those vacation calories off with a state-of-the-art fitness center and an outdoor fitness lawn.
The next Orlando vacation home community our buyers loved this year was Storey Lake. This mixed home community features 2-3 bedroom condos all the way to 5-6 bedroom villas. Located on Osceola Parkway, the community is closer to Walt Disney World than nearly every other vacation community in Central Florida. What makes this community so loved by our buyers?
Location, Location, Location!
Storey Lake Resort has one of the best locations for vacation homes in Central Florida.
However, it’s closeness to Walt Disney World isn’t the only locational selling point. Storey Lake is also extremely close to multiple shopping options including about a five-minute drive to The Loop and less than 10 minutes away from some of the popular outlet malls in the area.
While Storey Lake is practically in the middle of everything, it still feels like a remote, out of the way vacation destination. Situated around a beautiful lake, the community features plenty of activities that helps connect guests to nature like canoe & kayak rentals, fishing, and even sandy beaches to lounge about.
If you are in the market for a new home in 2018, we hope you take a cue from our buyers’ 2017 favorites.
