Top 5 Reasons to Live in Stuart, FL

  • Ample local amenities! Stuart gets a gold star for the sheer amount of local amenities. Stock up on groceries at the Publix Supermarket at the Downtown Stuart Shopping Center, and the local Stuart Green Farmers' Market. If you fancy a break from cooking, you'll find that local eateries include Pelican Cafe, The Sailor's Return, and the Luna Italian Restaurant.
  • Endless recreation! Living so close to the water certainly has its advantages, as you'll be within easy reach of the Jupiter Inlet Aquatic Reserve and numerous local fishing spots. If you prefer to relax in green spaces, you won't be short of options: the Atlantic Ridge, Seabranch, and Savannas Preserve State Parks are all within reasonable walking distance. The plentiful golf courses in the area add to the fun.
  • Entertainment! Catch a show at the Lyric or Barn Theater or head into the neighboring community of Jensen Beach to watch the latest blockbuster at the Treasure Coast Mall's Regal Cinema. If you fancy a day trip, Orlando theme parks are just a little more than two hours away.
  • Attractive rentals markets! At around $930, the average rental rate in Stuart is around five percent less than in the rest of Florida. That said, the high prices for properties along the waterfront push up the average, so if you were hoping to part with a little less, you have a good chance. Try looking in complexes such as Willoughby Cove or Sabal Palm Villas.
  • Home ownership! A little more than 55 percent of homes in Stuart are owner-occupied, and the relatively low average house price in the city means you have a good chance of joining the ranks. As with rental homes, actual costs do vary, but you can reasonably expect to pay around $115,000 for a three-bedroom townhouse on Lexington Lakes Drive or upwards of $340,000 for a condo on NW Flagler Avenue. The rent to own route is a viable option if you're not looking for an outright mortgage.
