Can you imagine being able to purchase a new construction property at the median home price in Venice? At a time when the housing market in Southwest Florida is heating up again, there are still a few opportunities to acquire choice real estate at great prices, and one of them is the Rapalo gated community, which is located in the Windemere district north of Manasota.
Rapalo is one of a handful of new communities completed by national home builder D.R. Horton in recent years. The floor plans are part of the Express Homes collection, a D.R. Horton brand that emphasizes quality construction offered at affordable prices. To give you an idea of the value you can get at Rapalo, consider a four-bedroom home with two bathrooms listed for just $269,900 in September 2020; keeping in mind that $270K is the median home price for a three-bedroom property, this is an excellent deal.
Since the homes in Rapalo were completed between 2016 and 2019, they are still under builder’s warranty. The features and upgrades include granite counters with decorative panels, double sinks in the bathroom, walk-in closets, and Frigidaire appliances. Living spaces range from 1,542 and 1,828 square feet, and the exteriors are reminiscent of the Mediterranean revival style.
On top of the great real estate, Rapalo also offers amenities. The community recreation center is anchored by a swimming pool next to a clubhouse. Various greenbelt spaces can be used for picnics, and two lakes in the neighborhood provide lucky homeowners with water views.
Rapalo is not only ideally priced for first-time home buyers; it is also close to attractions that are perfect for families. The beaches at Manasota Key are less than 10 minutes away, and there are a couple of nature preserves nearby. When you need to go on a grocery run, you will find a Walmart Supercenter just a few minutes north. Driving to the tourism district of Downtown Venice will only take you about 15 minutes.
