If you have ever dreamed of moving into a spacious and elegant house in Southwest Florida, Willow Chase in Nokomis has exactly what you are looking for.
Willow Chase is a gated community that was slated for residential development right before the downturn of the real estate economy in the United States. Since late 2012, however, national homebuilders such as D.R. Horton have been renewing their interest in Southwest Florida, particularly in communities such as Nokomis.
Located east of I-75 and north of Venice, Nokomis is one of the most family-friendly communities of Sarasota County. Many home buyers move to Nokomis because they want their families to grow and prosper; they are looking for safety, comfort, great education, an active climate for business, suburban comforts, and amenities. For these reasons, house hunters should start their real estate search in Willow Chase.
D.R. Horton is not the only builder at Willow Chase, but it is one of the most active. By mid-2013, D.R. Horton had completed 34 homes; faced with fresh interest and increased demand, the builder purchased another 25 lots. The floor plans that D.R. Horton has selected for Willow Chase have the distinctive Mediterranean revival style of architecture, and they range from 1,840 to 2,587 square feet of living space.
Property values have appreciated considerably at Willow Chase over the past few years. When D.R. Horton built the first few models, pricing started in the low $200K range for three-bedroom and two-bathroom floor plans. Homeowners in this neighborhood tend to hold on to their properties, and thus home buyers should ask real estate professionals to keep them updated of new listings. As of summer 2014, a two-bedroom and two-bathroom home with 2,149 square feet of air-conditioned space was listed for less than $390K. A larger three-bedroom and two-bathroom property was listed at $410K.
Willow Chase has plenty of amenities for the entire family: Tennis courts, a swimming pool, clubhouse, and hiking trails. Nokomis Beach is just 15 minutes away, and the pristine Florida nature of Oscar Scherer State Park is just five minutes away. The Venetian Golf and River Club is located within walking distance. For more shopping and entertainment options, Downtown Venice is about 20 minutes away. Schools serving this neighborhood include Nokomis Elementary, Laurel Middle and Venice Senior High.
