Find Your Home Sweet Home in Volusia County

Volusia County is a sweet spot for first-time homebuyers, those looking to downsize, and investors.

The more important step when buying a home in a new location is partnering with an experienced local real estate agency that knows the area and can match you with the community best suited to your lifestyle and needs.

Buy a Home In One of Volusia County’s Sweet Spots

The realtors here at Southern Exclusive Realty were busy this past year, and things are only getting better. With the slight dip in interest rates and our client’s interest in being bonafide homeowners and investors, we’ve excelled at closing a record number of escrows as we’ve helped clients find homes in one of our county’s many sweet spots.

Volusia County is Home to Lovers of Land, Sea, and Sky

First and foremost, our clients love the diverse range of geography and things to do in and around Volusia County. Once you live here, you’re less than an hour away from:

  • Fun in the sun, sand, and sea. Undoubtedly, we excel at embracing the indoor/outdoor lifestyle, including easy trips to one of the area’s many beaches. Once you get to one of our many attractive strips of coastline, family members of all ages can find something they love, whether swimming, boogie boarding, rollerblading on boardwalks, or simply parking a chair under an umbrella and catching up on reading and relaxation.
  • Freshwater abounds. There aren’t too many places in the country where you are just as close to the ocean as you are to freshwater lakes and waterways. We frequently sell homes that are an easy drive (or waterfront) to Lake Monroe, Konomac Lake, and 122 additional lakes in our county. Prospective buyers also appreciate the close proximity to the area’s well-known river systems, including St. Johns, Halifax, and Mantanzas Rivers, where clients enjoy everything from boating and water skiing to birding, river beaching, paddling, and picnicking.
  • Natural preserve getaways. Commercial developments have threatened our unique and fragile ecosystem these past several decades. As a result, we now boast countless natural preserves dedicated to preserving this incredible landscape and its species. Some of our favorite conservation lands in Volusia County are the Deep Creek Preserve, Lake George Forest and Wildlife Management Area, and the Lyonia Preserve.

Buying a home in one of these and other Volusia County hot spots is an investment in the highest quality of life and community.

We’ll Help You Find Your Home Sweet Home

The real estate professionals at Southern Exclusive Realty work closely with buyers to find them the exact right home.

For First-Time Homebuyers

If you’re a first-time homebuyer, we’ll walk you through the lender pre-approval process so you have all the paperwork you need to make an offer and land the home you’ve been waiting for. We know first-time homebuyers have specific needs, and we’ll listen carefully so you’re only looking at homes that match your budget while still providing everything you’re looking for in a home.

Buying a Home to Downsize?

We are the go-to real estate agents for buyers looking to downsize and prepare – or embrace – their retirement. We have the inside scoop on the area’s up-and-coming developments. For some, that means downsizing to an easily manageable condo or apartment-based community so you can easily lock things up and travel the world. For others, that means finding the perfect sweet home in a multi-generational neighborhood that’s easily walkable to stores, restaurants, and other live-play features.

For the beginning or expert investor

Investors know Volusia County is a smart place to purchase residential rentals. For example, median home sale prices here in DeLand were around $361K, but the median rental price was $1895 – and rents continue to go up regardless of real estate market fluctuations.

This is excellent news for investors who can rent their homes for long-term rentals. We’re also happy to show you homes in areas that allow Airbnb or VRBO rentals, allowing you to profit more quickly from your investment while retaining the ability to keep it as a personal vacation home whenever you want it.
