Hampton Park Homes for Sale
Hampton Park, located in the Master Planned community of Gateway in Fort Myers, remains an extremely desirable community for anyone interested in buying a home in a gated community.
To give you some background on the community, WCI was the original developer in the community. They did a terrific job with architectural features of the homes. During the boom years, WCI was selling these homes from the $400,000’s.
The Negatives. Fast forward to present day and the community has seen its fair share of turmoil. WCI struggled to stay financially stable, thus resulting in a bankruptcy and halting construction on new homes in Hampton Park. Some of the homes in the community were unfortunately built with Chinese drywall, and finally, many of the homeowners who bought during the boom were very upside down on their mortgages and have had to either go into foreclosure or short sale their homes, thus creating only distressed Hampton Park homes for sale.
The Positives. If you read any self-help or motivational books, what do they always say? Wherever there is a negative, there is always a better positive on the other side. In my mind, this is VERY true of Hampton Park. The biggest turn of events for the community is the purchase of the remaining lots by Lennar. Lennar has remained one of the biggest home builders in the country and has plenty of cash to back up that statement. Since their purchase of the remaining lots, the builder has been building extremely affordable Hampton Park homes for sale. This alone is bringing much needed stability to the community. Couple this fact with the recent news the Boston Red Sox new spring training facility “Fenway South” is set to open just outside of Gateway on Daniel’s Parkway, and you have a recipe for community success.
For your convenience, I have included here a complete list of Hampton Park homes for sale. Before you purchase in Hampton Park, you will want to know the advantages and disadvantages of buying either a WCI product or the new Lennar homes. Ask me and I’ll share with you the secrets.
