Home buyers should always think of themselves as property investors, which means that they should look for listings that offer both quality of life and the prospect of building equity down the line. In northern Manatee County, a few neighborhoods fit this description, and one of them happens to be Heather Glen in Palmetto, an established community of single-family residences located near the western end of Parrish.
Construction at Heather Glen started in the 1990s and continued for more than seven years. At a time when this section of Palmetto was mostly being developed as golf country, Heather Glen offered a nice alternative to the more expensive country club neighborhoods. This community is ideal for families looking for properties built on large lots where children can play without straying too far from home; in fact, quite a few homeowners have added private swimming pools in recent years. It is not unusual to find three-bedroom homes built on lots larger than 10,000 square feet.
By virtue of being located between the Moccasin Wallow and Buffalo Creek golf courses, Heather Glen is blessed with lakes, ponds, and small nature preserves. The most attractive homes have covered lanais and swimming pools facing the lakes, thus making them perfect for enjoying sunny days. A picnic spot with a playground is located near the lake for the benefit of residents and their guests.
The best part about Heather Glen is that pricing in late 2019 is very affordable. A couple of three-bedroom homes with two full bathrooms were listed under $240K in December, and this is at a time when Parrish and surrounding districts are seeing a lot of new construction. Heather Glen has a good potential of experiencing property value appreciation, particularly with the new Gateway Commons shopping center, which features a new Publix with an European-style deli, is about five minutes away. This neighborhood is close enough to Anna Maria Island to make trips to the beach a weekly family tradition.
