Babcock Ranch is the first solar powered town in America, an innovative new town that sets a whole new standard for sustainable, responsible growth. Located in Southwest Florida just north of Fort Myers, Babcock Ranch combines the best of America’s great hometown traditions with all the conveniences of today and tomorrow. From the largest solar-plus-storage system operating in the U.S. today, the expansive public green spaces and trails to the gigabyte of fiber-optic connectivity standard to every home and free wi-fi everywhere you may roam, it’s a place where families can benefit from the most advanced technologies, then walk out their doors to reconnect with nature and neighbors.
Babcock Ranch offers more than 50 home designs ideal for young millennials, growing families, empty nesters and retirees alike. Condominiums, villas and single-family estates are built to Florida Green Building Coalition standards, with an emphasis on energy and water conservation, and offer a full gig of fiber-optic connectivity.
With a choice of nine of Southwest Florida’s finest homebuilders and six distinctive neighborhoods, you’re sure to find a home that’s just right for you – whether it’s a custom lakefront estate home, or a terrace home in a golf and lifestyle community. Babcock Ranch will ultimately include 19,500 homes and six million square feet of commercial space.
Babcock Ranch New Construction Homes (not listed in the MLS)
Unlike a regular seller who lists their home with a local real estate agent, homebuilders often have their own sales employees working for them on site. They do this to have more control and to cut costs.
Do you need a Buyers agent to buy new construction? Absolutely. Don’t kid yourself, there are too many things involved with buying new construction that you will not understand. A good buyers agent will read the contract and make sure items promised are listed in the contract. They will watch your time frame deadlines, so you are not penalized. When builder problems come up, they will advise you about your best options. New construction problems do come up and are never the same from build to build. You need someone to help make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. You will not pay more for the property if you bring your buyers agent. In fact, they may know of some perks that they will negotiate for you. Do not make the mistake of trying to buy a home a home alone. The sales person represents the builder, never the buyer. Who will represent you?
