The Avilla Suncoast development currently under construction in Odessa, Pasco County, sounds an awful lot like the standard new-home communities being built all over the region. The 152-home gated neighborhood will feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom single-family homes with private backyards, open floor plans, granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Community amenities include a resort-style pool and dog park.
But these new homes aren't being built for sale. The entire community is being built by developer NexMetro Communities as single-family-home rentals, where rates will be comparable to a traditional Class A apartment.
Referred to as "built-for-rent," the new residential housing niche first gained traction in states like Arizona and Texas. Builders and investors created single-family, home-rental communities, and, just like multifamily complexes, renters filled them up. Now with proof of concept, companies like Phoenix-based NexMetro Communities are coming to the Sunshine State.
A truly unique alternative to the typical rental experience, Avilla Homes neighborhoods feature single level, detached homes for lease in a gated enclave. The one, two and three-bedroom floor plans feature private entrances, outdoor patios and backyards, along with high-end finishes such as 10' ceilings, granite/quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and more. The pet friendly communities offer the perks of neighborhood living with optional garages, resort-style pool, beautifully landscaped recreation areas, and even an electric car charging station - all maintained by a professional management company, without mortgage payments or HOA fees.
NexMetro Communities is an innovative development company focused on building luxury leased home neighborhoods that serve lifestyle conscious consumers seeking a new home experience without the burdens of a mortgage. In partnership with its affiliated companies, NexMetro has developed Avilla Homes neighborhoods since 2010 in key Sunbelt locations. Combining elements of residential single-family living with rental terms and management, NexMetro provides a growing market niche of consumers a leased home experience like no other.Visit NexMetro's Website
