north central florida homes for saleNW Gainesville
A home located in Gainesville not only provides a permanent place to call home and personal satisfaction, it is also a solid investment. The value of a home is likely to increase steadily over time without the extreme ups and downs associated with many other investments. A home is a relatively stable investment and probably will not earn spectacular returns like some other investments, such as stocks, but owning a home is less likely to show dramatic declines often associated with stocks and other investments.

In addition to being a good investment, owning a home provides unique income tax benefits. The mortgage interest and property taxes homeowners pay yearly are deductible on income tax and the profits of up to $500,000 on the sale of a principal residence are excluded from tax on capital gains. Stock dividends are subject to income tax and profits on the sale of stocks, bonds and other investments are subject to a 20 percent federal tax rate for most investors.

One of the many benefits to owning a home in Gainesville is leveraging. A buyer can purchase a home with a cash down payment that is only a small fraction—as little as 10 percent or less—of the total purchase price, but the return is based on the total value of the property. This is called leveraging an investment, and it makes the rate of return on a home much greater than on an equivalent investment where the buyer must put up the entire purchase price.

Looking at homeownership as an investment is only one way to analyze its value. Owning a home in Gainesville provides a valuable place to live that no other investment can match. It provides shelter while encouraging good citizenship and commitment to the community.

You’ll become the envy of the neighborhood when you entertain in your new backyard. Whether it’s a family-friendly pool party with Marco Polo and pool volleyball or an adult-only gathering with wine, grilling, and good conversation, a swimming pool provides the perfect atmosphere to enjoy summer sunshine and good company. Your pool becomes the go-to venue for all of your entertaining needs.

Did you know that the average American family can spend close to $100 a week on each child to entertain them while home from school during the summer? The cost of sports and activity camps can really add up, and so can memberships at town recreation facilities, trips to water parks, or expensive vacations to the beach. With a swimming pool in your backyard, however, your kids have endless entertainment right at home—and you don’t even have to drive them to it!

In addition to serving as a summer haven for your kids, owning a swimming pool can benefit your health—swimming can burn more than 400 calories per hour! A quick dip after work can help you de-stress and relax. Even just sitting out by the pool on a quiet summer evening with a glass of iced tea and a good book can be a source of immense calm.
north florida homes for saleGolf Course Communities
Golf community living is perfect for those seeking a relaxed environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Moreover, these private communities are not just for those that play the game of golf. Many cater to homeowners that appreciate the beauty a golf course has to offer despite a lack of interest in the game. There are numerous types of golf communities throughout Alachua County for people young and old from active adults to young working professionals..

You don’t have to be any one type of person to live in a golf community, as there are many different communities and they appeal to a wide range of people. A common misconception is that you have to be rich to live in one of these beautiful communities, but you don’t! You may have to shop around to find one that is in your price range, but chances are that you can find a golf community that will appeal to your style and budget.

Another great feature of golf communities is the social aspect. Many have different clubs that attract a wide range of the homeowners such as those that like to hunt, card clubs, fitness clubs, parenting groups, and more. Communities such as this become almost like small cities within cities, and it allows all of the neighbors to get to know one another on a really special level.

While the golf is definitely a great feature, it is not the only one that people should consider when living in a golf community. Many communities offer other features such as swimming pools, hot tubs, walking trails, tennis courts along with basketball courts. Other golf communities also offer pro shops, driving ranges, and professional golf lessons.
