Indian River County is a wonderful place to call home. It boasts a great location that puts it in close proximity to 90% of Florida’s population. But with its wealth of amazing beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and Florida’s best natural preserves in the Treasure Coast area, it maintains a tranquil, away-from-it-all vibe that has made it a popular vacation destination.
The county’s tourist attractions have made vacation homes and rental properties popular here. Many investors purchase homes to rent out to visitors, while others buy secondary properties for their personal use. But most homes are owned by residents who are lucky enough to call this amazing paradise home.
Indian River Real Estate
The best part about real estate in Indian River County is that it is generally lower priced than most of Florida and the US, giving owners great value for their money. While there are a wide variety of property types here, single family homes make up the majority of the housing stock.
The five incorporated municipalites of Indian River County – Sebastian, Vero Beach, Fellsmere, Indian River Shores and the Town of Orchid – boast their own flavor and attraction, and this is reflected in the homes found in each one.
- Sebastian single-family homes
Single-family homes in the city come in a wide variety of sizes, prices and architectural styles, but bungalows with open floor plans are the most popular type. You can find luxurious waterfront estates, regular sized homes with landscaped yards, and everything in between. The city also features several developments that offer charming tract homes in customizable floor plans.
- Vero Beach single-family homes
Known as the Hamptons of Florida, Vero Beach features some of the most luxurious estates and single-family homes in the state. The most desirable homes are waterfront – whether along the beach or on the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway. Vero Beach is home to a number of top-rated golf communities boasting opulent homes, many of which feature ocean, river or golf course views. The city also features homes in regular sizes, perfect for young families with changing needs.
- Fellsmere single-family homes
This rustic, rural community is a great bedroom community for the bigger cities nearby, including Vero Beach, Sebastian, Melbourne and Palm Bay. The homes in the city are more modest in size compared to its neighbors, but many are built on large land areas that are zoned for both agricultural and residential use. You will also find a number of mature farms and equestrian properties for sale in a wide variety of sizes.
- Indian River Shores single-family homes
This master planned community is made up of several low density gated communities, where you’ll find custom oceanfront or riverfront homes, as well as excellently designed tract homes. Many properties come with amenities like private swimming pools and spas, and residents have access to community features like clubhouses, tennis courts, swimming pools and more.
- The Town of Orchid single-family homes
This small incorporated Barrier Island community has some of the most luxurious homes in Indian River County. Featuring a golf and beach club, the town has a very limited number of homes, many of which are expansive estates with plush finishes and stunning architecture.
