Palm Coast Florida sits along the Atlantic Coast between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. Many of the cities residents actually commute to these larger markets or even as far as Jacksonville and Orlando. Housing prices vary considerably due to the topography, but buyers will find a mix of small- and medium sized homes with open, Mediterranean styling.
Palm Coast was developed in 1969 and officially incorporated in 1999. The city’s neighborhoods offer something for every type of resident, and most communities are within close proximity to beaches, trails, golf courses and more. Although no Palm Coast land actually borders the ocean, hundreds of residents still enjoy waterfront property thanks to the intracoastal waterway. Homes in this Venice-style neighborhood vary dramatically in style and size, but each one sits directly on a branch of the canal system. Many of the homes in Palm Coast also feature popular sun-seeker amenities, such as lanais, open floor plans and elegant landscaping. Buyers who look west of Interstate 95 will also find a large web of nicely appointed communities. Belle Terre, Pine Woods and Indian Trails are all great options for families. These neighborhoods offer modest pricing and unique home styles. Most of these communities along the highway are conveniently located near schools and stores. Moreover, city officials continued to work closely with developers in an effort to protect the area’s environmentally-sensitive land.
The city is continually recovering from the 2009 recession, but jobseekers can still find plenty of opportunities for work in town. Several brand new industrial parks have brought in dozens of mid-size businesses. Palm Coast Data Company alone employs over 1,000 people. Furthermore, the Ginn Family has dramatically improved the local economy with the construction of their Ginn Hammock Beach Resort. It was voted as the number one resort in Florida, and the family continues to promote festivals, golf tournaments and lavish holiday entertainment.
