It's no secret that Florida has some of the world's most beautiful beaches, best restaurants and incredible luxury lifestyle living! But, have you heard of Brevard County?
You've probably heard us mentioned before as Florida's Space Coast, because Brevard County boasts the biggest space programs in the country, with companies such as Nasa and SpaceX that have their location in Brevard. As a proud resident of Brevard County, I've been watching rockets flying through the atmosphere since I was just a kid! There's a real sense of pride and community around our space programs and a never ceasing awe every time we all get to see the spectacular launches.
Beyond our Space Programs is the untouchable value Brevard County has to offer. Most people's interpretation of a Florida Beach Home is likely that's it's financially unattainable and that they are far into the 7-8 figures. You'd be correct if we were talking about South Florida! But, Brevard County is a diamond in the rough, with incredible community, night life, white sand beaches, and an abundant amount of local cuisines to choose from; and yet... a beach home is still attainable! At the time of publication, Melbourne's median home price of $223,000. A direct beachfront home starts at around $700,000 while an oceanfront condo starts at around $200,000 or a riverfront home with a boat dock starts at $300,000. Do you see what we mean by Brevard County's Unbelievable Value?!
Business owners arguably have the best opportunities in Florida's Space Coast. Along with the Space Programs, Brevard County also has an enormous amount of career opportunities in technology due to large corporations such as Harris and Northrop Grumman, each of which boast continuous large government projects helping fuel the local economy. With all of the opportunities of Brevard County has to offer in terms of affordable homes and incredible careers, it only makes sense that business owners reap the benefits as well. Brevard County has an unlimited business potential and nearly endless current opportunities in every city. Engel & Völkers Melbourne offers several of these opportunities right here. We have several restaurants for sale, commercial buildings, as well as homes all over the county.
Brevard County businesses have really been thriving in recent years as our communities grow stronger and focus locally. Historic Downtown Melbourne is a prime example of that, with several restaurants, small shops, breweries and more. We are lucky enough to call Downtown Melbourne our home, as our Engel & Völkers Melbourne Shop can be found right in Melbourne's bustling heart, and our iconic sea turtle mural represents a little piece of Melbourne's artistic foundation. Historic Downtown Melbourne has events and festivals regularly that celebrate art, food, holidays and more, making it a highly desirable business community to be a part of.
Brevard County really is Florida's best kept secret. If you are interested in making a move to our home, give us a call at our local office at 321-821-4515
