DeLand is a very unique city. It has a warm, small-town feel in the downtown area, but also has many great subdivisions that echo a neighborly town with southern charm.
One of those subdivisions is Saddlebrook. Once someone steps foot into the Saddlebrook community, it feels like stepping back in time, when life moved at a slower pace. The brains behind the community is well-know developer, Taylor Morrison. In other nearby areas like Heathrow, Taylor Morrison homes are a premium. However, this subdivision in DeLand is an excellent value for the potential homebuyer.
Six Things to Address Before Winter
Fall is officially here, and and it is the perfect time for home and rental property owners to prepare for the winter season. Although Old Man Winter is usually kinder to Florida than other states, that doesn't mean that you should ignore home maintenance concerns that could become severe problems if not addressed.
If you live in the DeLand area, you've probably heard rumors for months as to what is going in at the new Publix Shopping Center at Country Club Corners in the south side of town. You've probably heard every retail business in the book via social media. Now, the mysteries are starting to be revealed with the new development of a Starbucks, and a Chick-fil-A as released earlier this week.
Our broker, Todd Swann, was quoted as a source in the Daytona Beach News-Journal on November 3 stating, "I do think there is some interest from national tenants that we haven't seen before." He went on to say, "With the economy improving and our demographics (changing), the retailers are starting to take another look at DeLand."
What other national chains can DeLand expect? Only time will tell, but we can shed some light on why some of these retailers have DeLand in their sights.

Fall is a great time of the year to get outside, breathe cool fresh air, and transition into the holiday season. Some may not agree, but fall is a great time of the year in Central Florida. The temperatures may not be as cool as other places in the country, and the color changes in foliage may not be as drastic, but experiencing a Florida Fall should not be underestimated. The temperatures are very moderate, and the humidity is not as intense as the summer months. It is the perfect time of year to experience several outdoor events in our area before the busy holiday season begins.
Our team at Swann and Associates wants you and your family to experience the most out of a Florida Fall, so we have put together a list of the top 11 things to do in the DeLand area this fall. (Disclaimer: your family might have so much fun, one or more of these events might become part of your annual fall tradition.)
