There was a time when most homeowners demanded their personal space and oversized yards filled with colorful blooming azaleas (for two weeks out of the year, that is) where they could sip their beverage of choice while overlooking their 8,000-plus square-feet of St. Augustine.

But citywide residential developments no longer fit into a mold, and what was once considered “normal” could be thing of the past.

With land in the city costing a small fortune these days, developers saw an opening for a new way of living—a new normal. Why build one house on an acre when you could build five?

Enter the “lock and leave” movement.

Patio homes, townhomes, or condos that you can button up and head out of in a hurry—these communities are taking the term “luxury” to new heights, figuratively and literally, as many exceed three stories.

But is the “new normal” right for you? A few questions to ask yourself:

  • Do I want more time?
  • Do I want more flexibility?
  • Do I need less maintenance?
  • Does the idea of shared amenities sound appealing?
  • How about a community garden?
  • What about fool-proof landscaping? Turf?
  • State-of-the-art custom features?
  • Open-concept floor plan?
  • Marble? Granite? Both?
  • Hardwood floors?
  • Perfect location, zoned to some of the best schools in the city?

Welcome home.
