Breaking news! Brand new LENNAR community in Fort Myers!
Have you heard? There has been quite the ongoing buzz for the last few months. LENNAR broke ground in the gated Reflection Isles community earlier this year and the lots have been selling like hot cakes! Nestled in the environmentally sensitive 2,000-acre Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, I call Reflection Isles a “diamond in the rough”.
Back in 2006, Engle homes originally built homes in this community but when the economy went south in 2008 & 2009, they went bankrupt and the community went into foreclosure. Vacant lots sat for years and the promised amenity center was never built! At that time, the homeowners were left with homes that they overpaid for, HOA fees that didn’t cover any amenities and what seemed like a ghost town of lots all around them. What makes this community special? Well, beyond the perfect location in the highly desirable Daniels Corridor, the beautiful homes, lakes and serene privacy…it’s the residents! The residents didn’t want to see their community go downhill so they united and kept up the aesthetic integrity together! Fast forward years later and what they endured paid off! LENNAR purchased lots and wasted no time building models. They’ve even cleared the land for construction on the following amenities:
- Community pool
- Fitness center
- Basketball Courts
- Kid’s playground
- …and more!
This has breathed new life into Reflection Isles and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Buyers and realtors are clamoring to get their hands on these homes! There is little to no existing resale inventory in the community, therefore new construction is BOOMING! LENNAR brings an affordable, quality product to the table and that’s why they’re having so much success. The residents are thrilled and have ongoing celebrations with weekend neighborhood barbeques and socials. After all, they’ve been through the worst and it has only made them closer. You can’t manufacture or duplicate that bond anywhere! Current buyers are not only purchasing a home…they’re purchasing a community family. Have you checked it out?
