Why Will River Strand be Successful Community
for Many Years to Come?

Let Me Tell You Why.

Did you know that one of River Strand's best features is not about what it offers but WHERE it is located? While River Strand does offer a great value proposition for a multitude of homeowners at different price points, its the LOCATION that really sets River Strand real estate apart. Let me drive home this point--it is worth expounding upon why River Strand has been so successful.

With increasing regularity, many newer communities are popping up in Florida with the idea that the community's features will drive traffic to the new area. While this strategy can be serviceable (especially if the land costs justify it and those cost savings are passed to the customers), the community must be sufficiently unique to justify the travel time it takes to get to, say, a major highway, commercial infrastructure, and great schools. And that's the best thing about River Strand--you have a genuinely great community that can stand on its own merit as an affordable luxury option, but the location--yes--location, location, location--is what sets this community apart from so many others.

Where can you be in an affordable and private gated golf enclave in such close proximity to a major highway that leads to everything an area has to offer? When you tell your friends how to visit the community--what's your line? Well, it probably goes something like this: "Oh, it's really easy to find us. Just take Exit 220 to 64E. We are on the left!" No matter how you slice it, the value proposition to that simple statement is what makes River Strand's location matter so much. Most of the time, traffic congestion ON THE WAY to the highway is what drives so many of us crazy. If there is beauty in simplicity, being near a major highway is an understated benefit that is worth its weight in gold.

The location is not only just about its proximity to major highways though! It's also about the multiple conservation areas and the proximity of the community to the Manatee River, both of which provide an attractive sanctuary for wildlife. One of the favorite things I learned about River Strand last year was about...birds!  Apparently, over 55 varieties of birds were spotted in the community by homeowners. How cool is that? Of course, River Strand is not "just for the birds"--there is a vibrant ecosystem in the community. If you love nature, River Strand is a great fit. Don't take my word for it--hop into one of the terrace condos for sale in River Strand and prepare to be amazed. The views are extraordinary. And so is River Strand.
