Its Fall in Ave Maria

October is filled with spooky and fun activities throughout the month for our residents and visitors. To start off the month residents enjoyed one of Ave Maria’s signature monthly events, First Friday Fun, at Oil Well Craft Beer with lawn games, live music, and cold craft beer. Oil Well Craft Beer was busy this month hosting the charity event, Boozin for Boobs, as well as Bingo Night and Brew & Paint. They finish October with a Halloween Party for ages 21 and up on October 20 and a Wine Tasting event on October 23, which are both opened to the public, and a Trunk or Treat on October 27.

Del Webb Naples, Collier County’s only Del Webb active-adult community, is its own little community inside of our small town and their lifestyle director keeps the fun going all month with events and activities exclusive to Del Webb residents. They are looking forward to the Fall Festival and Halloween Party on October 26 and October 27. Lots of “boos” and wicked fun for sure!

Ave Maria University continue their fall sports season with soccer and football throughout the month. Come join the action on October 27 when the AMU women’s soccer team takes on South Eastern University and the AMU football team takes on Keiser University. Spending a Saturday in Ave Maria enjoying restaurants in the Town Center followed by a coallegiate sports match is a great fall weekend activity for both residents and visitors.

Living the American Dream – Home Ownership in Ave Maria

Owning a home has many far-reaching benefits that outweigh the immediate ease of renting. Oftentimes renters don’t believe they can qualify to purchase a new home whether because of inadequate credit score, insufficient down payment funds, or lack of knowledge of the real estate market. Educating renters on how-to successfully navigate a path to new home ownership is available through the sales center representatives in Ave Maria, Florida.

First, home owners build equity instead of burning through cash. Each month you make a mortgage payment, a portion of that payment goes toward reducing the amount you owe on your loan, thereby increasing your equity. As your home increase in value, your equity increases. Renters do not experience this advantage with monthly rental payments going directly to a landlord or leasing company. If the apartment increases in value, and perhaps monthly rents increase, the renter does not realize any benefit but instead ends up paying more in rent. Your monthly mortgage payment is more stable and predictable when based on a fixed-rate mortgage while rent payments can increase subject to the landlord.

Secondly, mortgage interest and property tax payments may be deductible from federal taxes and state taxes. In the state of Florida, you can deduct your property taxes each year with a cap up to $10,000. This is a great savings on your taxes. You can also enjoy renewable energy tax credits up to 30% of the costs of approved major energy installations. To learn more about these energy efficient products please visit Energy Star website.

Building a strong credit history is another benefit of responsible home ownership. When you consistently make your monthly mortgage payments on time, lenders will see that you are a good borrower and your credit history will strengthen. This will help when applying for future loans including car loans or home improvements.

Builders in Ave Maria support the path to home ownership and throughout the year may offer incentives and assistance to new home buyers.  Contact the builder sales representatives to learn more about what special offers are going on now.

Home ownership is part of the American dream for many and living in Ave Maria with all its conveniences and amenities further expands that dream to include an incredible lifestyle for families and retirees. On-site events, town center, lifestyle director, and so much more all add up to a dream come true.

 


Ready…Set…Labor Day!

With Labor Day right around the corner we thought we would share what’s happening in Ave Maria. Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer, but we are fortunate to enjoy warm sunshine and tropical weather year-round in our Southwest Florida location.

Residents here kick off the long weekend with a Beach Walk and Breakfast for anyone living in Del Webb Naples neighborhood. Afternoons and evenings can be spent at happy hour at the Ave Maria Pub & Grill located in the Town Center or with homemade pizza and pasta specials at Gino’s Trattoria.

Spending Saturday and Sunday in one of the on-site parks in Ave Maria tires out the little ones and certainly logs steps on the fitness tracker for mom and dad. A friendly competition between friends on the baseball field in North Park is a great way to meet residents from other neighborhoods within Ave Maria. Parents gather at the tot lot playground and soccer fields at North Park too. What better way to enjoy a holiday weekend than at your very own water park! A resident only Pre-Labor Day Celebration at the Ave Maria Water Park will be held Saturday, September 1st from 11am to 2pm with live deejay, food specials, and activities. University students in Ave Maria can attend the Ave Maria University Gyrenes women’s soccer team match against Trinity Baptist at 3pm on Saturday, September 1st.

Our very own Del Webb Naples’s lifestyle director has planned a S’more Fun Labor Day party on Monday at 5:30pm while the Rusty Putter restaurant at Panther Run Golf Club will host a Labor Day BBQ. Living in a Del Webb community has perks and benefits encouraging active adults to engage socially and physically. Whether it’s a yoga or water aerobics class or themed dinner and dance, there is always something to do at Del Webb Naples. Staying young both in body and mind is evident when you live in our Southwest Florida Del Webb Naples neighborhood.

The popularity of craft beer has certainly made its way to Ave Maria. Oil Well Craft Beer, located in the Park of Commerce, will feature open mic night on Friday, August 31 at 8pm and Naples Smoked BBQ from 6-9pm. The Ave Maria Pub & Grill also serves a wide variety of craft beer as well as delicious burgers, pizzas and salads.
