This community is not known to a lot of visitors or even Port St Lucie residents. It is not gated community, there is no HOA. Located west of US1 and just south of Prima Vista, contains only few “streets”. Yes- “streets”. You definitely will need SUV (four wheel drive), if you chose to live there. There is no pavement, no asphalt on roads and in rainy days, it gets challenging to find property. There is electricity, but no city sewer or city water. Lots are not small. To my knowledge they start at one acre. If you like nature and privacy, if you like riding horses and keeping them in the barn next to your home- you will love this community. If you crave elegant “acreage” properties, I do not think that you will find everything that you need. Don’t get me wrong: there are beautiful, large mansions in neighborhood, but you will also see small homes without nice landscaping- just basic homes.
My advice: visit and judge for yourself.

I am absolutely not writing this article to tell buyers/sellers which one is better . I just want explain some things that may be confusing for buyers coming to florida from Northern states . In Connecticut, New York, etc you NEED attorney to close on home. I am not going to list all the services that attorney does, because of one simple reason: I don’t know. But I know that attorney will be the one to assist buyer and seller in executing “closing” documents:, making sure that buyer is getting property free and clear of liens, seller gets paid, etc.
In Florida that is not requirement. You can (as buyer or seller) have Title Company assist with closing of transaction. Those institutions are licensed. And will make sure that seller, buyer and everybody else involved in transaction comes out at the end with :home or fair compensation. They make sure that there is no liens on property, prepare deed, work with buyer’s lender ,etc.
There are definitely Real Estate Attorneys in Florida who can do exactly the same and as buyer or seller you are welcome to hire them. There will be (most of the time) difference in fee. Attorney’s services are a little bit more expensive usually. But you do- have additional protection. And if you are worried that transaction may get a little bit out of hand and complicated issues may arise, maybe attorney would be a better choice. Like I mentioned, this article just explains the difference between Florida and some other states as far as “closing companies’ are concerned.
