Hi All,

My family and I are considering a move to Jupiter from the Northeast. We have 2 children that would be in elementary school and want to find a nice community to live in. Are there any opinions on any of the gated communities out there. I have seen advertisements for Jupiter CC, Rialto, Abacoa, Prado and others. We would like to have some room to give a suburban feel, a nice family friendly community of course and a good school district. The best school district if possible wouldnt hurt. We could buy now or pre-construction.

Thanks for any insight.

Lots of info already posted but I will give you a short synopsis:

Jup CC- been under construction for 8 years, still not done. Not selling great, community is focusing on retirees now vs. younger demographics when it started
Rialto- pretty close to sold out. Gated but not really, you can drive in/out all day long, gates only close at night but no actual guard on duty.
Prado- Jupiter address but Martin County (not Jupiter schools)
Abacoa- not gated, double HOA fees (one master HOA, one HOA for your actual community). They are building last section now.

Gated Communities are a joke. Stop and meet a guard or two and you will realize that they aren't "seal team 6" but rather $9 an hour people struggling to stay awake most of the time.

haha, thanks for the info. Where would you look if you were us? I thought the Toll Bros would be a nice option. And from reading some older posts Rialto could be a fit.

They all have their pros and cons (primarily pros)just depends on you really.
Do you have a price range you want to keep it around?
Abacoa is usually very popular for what you described, but the lots are a little smaller.

Abacoa I think is the perfect area for your family and also look at Egrets Landing.

The Estate Section Homes of Rialto offer you bigger lots and fit into your price range. Prado offers 1/2 lots, but the prices start at $790K+ and as mentioned is in Martin County. Jupiter CC allegedly has to many monthly fees.

Other areas are Zero Lot Lines, roughly 10-12 feet between houses if that. Sometimes you can even hear your neighbor's flushing their toilets when the windows are open....

The Zero lot lines does not sound great. Jupiter CC has monthlies but I read you get some services for it. Would it be geared towards familes? Or more retirees?

I'm pretty sure there are a mix of ages in the community probably mostly in the Heritage and Signature sections as those offer floor plans for families.
