We have narrowed our search and are now focusing on Satellite Beach. We found out friends we were stationed with before recently bought a house there also! Lucky for us!

I have a few questions as they are new to the area and didnt know these answers.

Ive noticed the homes in Sat Beach are older or they are new homes in the Monticito neighborhood. In your opinion, what are some pros and cons to each area? Are Mercedes homes well built? I found a youtube video that shows otherwise but I know that is only one case.

Also, I have been basically walking street by street on Google Earth street view. It wont let me in the Monticito area and i noticed next to that is a huge area of empy lots. From some research am I right to think this is old south housing for Patrick? Does anybody know of any more plans to develop this area to more new neighborhoods?

I have to admit, I like the idea of a new home. Big closets, nice master, more room. But I am still open to older homes as long as they have been remodeled.

We move this summer. I am so ready! We are coming from dreary Germany and i need some sun and blue sky!

Thank you fo any help you can give. I think I have read 13 pages of info on here and that is what got us to want to reside in Satellite Beach! Our friends living there just confirmed it! So thank you.

They are still building homes in Montecito. I think they are nice but it will depend on your budget, What is your budget? Satellite is nice, I really like the Desoto neighborhood, especially if you have kids. I would also look in Indian Harbour Beach and Indialantic. It's not much further and it will give you more options.

Our budget is $300-$400. We would love to stay on the lower end.

You'll have options in that price range and can end up with a nice house.

I think that the closer you are to the water, the better life is here. There is nothing like walking to the beach whenever you want. Montecito is a nice neighborhood but not convenient to walk to the beach, you'll most likely drive. Is the beach or outdoor/water activities of interest to you?

We say yes. My husband runs and would love to run on the beach. My kids love being in the water and we are looking for a more laid back, small town feel. After living in Europe for 3 years, I am over grey skies, crowds and busyness. (Is that a word!? Lol).

Thanks for the info on Monticito. To me it looks close to the beach but I know Im looking at google earth. Can yout ell me about how many miles wide the land is in Satellite Beach?

Thanks.

The island varies in width up and down the island. I'd guess in the Montecito area is about 1.5 miles wide. Even though a mile walk doesn't seem far it can take 15-20 minutes each way. Once you're settled in and life becomes busy it can become a burden to walk to the beach. Many of my friends here live less than a mile from the beach and rarely go. For people that like spending time on the beach, I always advise to find a home as near the water as they can. The other option is to get some beach cruise bicycles, it makes the trip much quicker
