Still on the fence about acquiring a new custom Florida home? Don’t be!
Now’s a great time to build or buy a new home and there’s no better impetus than the start of a new year. It’s the boost you need to pursue your goal of a larger home, a timely move for career, personal or retirement reasons, or a more carefree lifestyle with a low-maintenance townhome.
Regardless of your buying motivation, there are practical factors to consider as you make your decision in early 2021. We detail three important ones below.
Interest rates remain attractive
Lowering interest rates was a key move by the Federal Reserve to steady and boost a pandemic-affected U.S. economy in 2020.
As of this writing, mortgage rates are still tantalizing for home buyers ready to take advantage of this potential savings. Rates have remained below 3.0 for some time, and although common sense dictates they won’t stay in that arena once the economy wholly recovers, this is an important consideration if you’re ready to move.
Low interest rates can do two things: increase the affordability and opportunity for the home you want or need, plus save you money in the long run because you’ll pay less interest over the course of your home loan.

Demand drives more choices
New communities are constantly coming online and existing ones are opening new phases.
ICI Homes, which celebrated its 40 anniversary in 2020, builds all over the state. Our master-planned communities in Jacksonville and northeast Florida, the Daytona Beach area, Gainesville and the Tampa Bay region, are booming.
We opened two new communities in 2020 — Tidewater in Jacksonville and Persimmon Park in Wesley Chapel, near Tampa. We also built more than a dozen new model homes, including those in Tidewater and Persimmon Park, as well as new models in Mosaic, Nocatee, and more!
Expect more exciting offerings in 2021. We’ll build new custom homes in two prestigious golf-course communities — Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club in Dade City, north of Tampa, and The Conservatory in Palm Coast — along with opening new phases at existing communities.
Building gives you what you want
The current real estate market is a seller’s market, which means resales are in high demand and inventory is low in most markets.
Instead of fretting the resale race, build your new custom Florida home with ICI Homes. You’ll get the home that best fits your household’s needs, and get it done your way. We’re known as Florida’s custom home builder and one of our mantras is, “We move walls!”
Every ICI Homes customer can take advantage of a complimentary customization meeting with one of our talent floor plan designers. That person will help you choose a plan and even tweak it to your specs — often at little or no cost.
