Best Vacation Homes Sub-divisons near Disney World

Monday, August 16th, 2010

I went to the internet to find how many vacation home communities gated and not gated there were near Disney World. I checked our site of course dwvacationhomes.com. I stopped counting when I got to 232. There are more than that I assure you. What I found….there are tons of sub divisions that house the 30,000 vacation villas, town homes, condos and private vacation pool homes.

Finding the best that is hard….I haven’t seen them all…quite frankly I haven’t seen but about 10% assuming there are some 400 vacation home communities. However, I can say for my money, I would love to see the community that could beat Legacy Park. The homes in this development are simply out of this world. It is a relatively new subdivision with construction starting in 2005 and completed in 2008. By the time of the downturn in real estate, they had sold 95% of their entire project.

Inside Legacy Park there are different sub communities most all gated where various developers sold their homes. All in all there are some 800 to 1,000 homes in this project. Most of them are upscale with prices ranging from $300,000 on the low end to over $600,000 on the high end. Most are private pool homes owned by an individual investor who is looking to profit from renting his home on a short term basis.

Proximity to Disney World is one of the reasons this project stands out over many other projects. With the new entrance to Disney World from State Rd 429, the commute to Magic Kingdom can be completed in about seven minutes.

All in all Legacy Park is a top notch development of first class homes with strong management companies. They for sure are tops on many a list. Check them out on dwvacationhomes.com.
