A coveted place to live, gorgeous vacation spot, and retirement haven, Florida is known for its beautiful weather, stunning beaches, and exciting entertainment venues. It’s no surprise that the Sunshine State is the big winner in inbound moves1 as wealthy residents of northern states look to relocate. With more and more individuals calling Florida home, let’s see what makes this sunny destination so desirable.
First, the cost of living is lower than the national average and there are no personal income taxes. This enables residents to save more money for fun activities, experiences, and belongings, relieving daily stresses and enhancing the quality of life. Ranked #2 in Best State for Business2, Florida is also recognized as a global business hub with a growing number of startups and job opportunities, as well as the Gateway to Latin America, allowing incoming residents to flourish in a thriving economy.
And, of course, we can’t forget that Florida is a diverse and dynamic melting pot of cultures. With over 2 million residents, there is no shortage of delectable dining options, vibrant festivals, renowned attractions, and cultural centers. Not to mention such international destinations as the beloved and ever-evolving Disney.
In case you too fall in love with our state and wish to either relocate or buy a second/summer home, we invite you to find inspiration in three of Lennar’s lovely Miami-Dade new home communities.
With all the appeal and excitement of a resort-style destination, AquaBella, a lakefront community of single-family homes and townhomes in Hialeah Gardens, offers breathtaking water views and exceptional family-friendly amenities. Opening soon, the first of two grand clubhouses will set the scene for myriad memories. Enjoy a picnic lakeside as you watch the sunset or treat your family and friends to a succulent barbeque at one of the numerous outdoor grilling stations. Then, sip a refreshing drink on the sundeck by the sparkling swimming pool, while the children play with friends in the adjacent kid’s water park. This master-planned community enables you to fully experience the relaxation and fun of South Florida living.
If you’re moving from one of the big northern cities, the metropolitan lifestyle of Urbana, a desirable community of condos and townhomes, may feel more familiar. Located in the heart of Downtown Doral, you’ll be a short walk away from world-class entertainment, shopping, and more. Stroll along elegant walkways, art galleries, and scenic parks, immersing yourself in the thriving Miami culture. And, without the extra expense of personal income tax, you can treat yourself to an exquisite gourmet meal, savoring global flavors and experiences at nearby restaurants.
Although very desirably located, you won’t even have to leave Urbana for a day of entertainment! For a wonderful day of fun under the sun, round up the family and head over to the grand clubhouse. The kids will love splashing around in the resort-style pool, while you can lounge on the sundeck curled up with a good book. And for the days you want to take a break from the state-of-the-art fitness center in your community, Urbana also offers a basketball court, perfect for a fun workout the whole family can enjoy.
For those who prefer a more Zen-inspired design, Campo Bello, a lovely community of single-family homes in Miami, is a serene destination of beautifully appointed homes and open green spaces. Every Lennar home features spacious floorplans, light-filled rooms, and an inspiring designer kitchen with stainless steel appliances, cabinets in your choice of colors, and ample countertops. The innovative twin home design, allows residents to enjoy many of the advantages of a single-family home, including very large backyards, but at the price of a townhome and with neighbors on only one side.
Surrounded by elegant palm trees and tropical landscaping, Campo Bello’s clubhouse offers many opportunities for outdoor relaxation, such as lounging in the glistening pool and the inviting sundeck or enjoying a well-deserved massage in the outdoor spa. At Campo Bello, you will certainly return home feeling completely refreshed and pampered.
In addition to the community’s beauty, all Lennar homes are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ for enhanced connectivity and convenience. Whether you are unwinding in your master suite or entertaining in your charming patio, enjoy reliable connection as you listen to a soothing playlist or look up quick recipes for dinner. Every home also comes with Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® package, ensuring that you won’t have to compromise on luxury features and finishes.
If you’re done with shoveling snow and spending long winter months huddled indoors, consider the amazing perks of tropical living and how they’re embraced in Lennar’s Miami new home communities. We know the ins and outs of South Florida living and will help you find your perfect place under the sun. And in case you’re wondering, yes, shorts and flip-flops are allowed at all our Welcome Home Centers! See you there!
