We will be moving to Port St. Lucie this summer. We found a lovely house in the Torino area and we are wondering what the neighborhood is like. Is it quiet? Are there a lot of people who rent during the busy season. Do people take care of their properties? If you were recommending someone moving to the area would you recommend that area. Only serious responses please. Thanks

Very nice, but remote location. I looked there as well when we relocated, but found it too far away from the rest of the world. The clubhouse is amazing though!! Very quiet, and it doesn't really have seasonal renters. You get them mainly more towards the beach. If you like it and are interested in a particular home, go for it! The prices are out of this world right now!

House prices are very subjective. I am sure there are deals to be had but in my experience usually the "deals" have issues. All of the deals we saw when we were looking included houses with standing water in the rear yards, termites in the baseboards and walls, plastic kitchen sinks, plastic bath tubs, no shower, no screened porch, cheap laminate flooring that was either buckling or heavily worn, cheap particle board cabinets, no landscaping, no well or sprinkler system, rear yard unfenced but included a great view of your neighbors back door, single car garage, did I say no landscaping and generally poor quality throughout the house. Many cheap houses were cheap for a reason. Some houses were in very noisy neighborhoods and located near major roads and the sound of traffic was noticeable. If you don't mind doing a lot of work before you move in then a deal is a deal but carefully consider all aspects and do not overlook the type of construction and insulation. The insurance costs vary widely with the type of construction of the house as do the taxes. Look carefully at everything.

Torino is actually a wonderful area located just north of St Lucie West Boulevard. Easy access to shopping and I95. Newer homes too as that area was only developed during the boom.

Depending on where you are you can hear 95...and there is a train track along one area. But then agin you can hear 95 from a lot of other areas too.

This area is not a community but simply individual homes built in that area. There is no common clubhouse.

Seasonal rentals there? No, it single family owned homes, not a seasonal area. There are seasonal rentals in nearby PGA Village, several condo communities in area, probably in verano and in Tradition.

Btw...the last post was not about Torino. Nice area and some of my best friends and clients purchased there. I would live there as well.

Sorry- I was looking at Vizcaya Falls, and assumed that it was the clubhouse for ALL of Torino. Thanks for correcting me!

Thank you for your responses. We will be spending a month in Port St Lucie looking to purchase a home. We are excited and look forward to living in Florida. If anyone knows of a 3 bedroom 2 bath with a pool let me know. Looking forward to meeting and becoming friends with the people of Port St Lucie
