Short commutes = Better health

August 17, 2016By Janis RafkinFort Lauderdale, Victoria Park

Do you commute to downtown Fort Lauderdale from the suburbs?

If so, you might be spending an average of 70 minutes a day (or more) driving to and from work. According to Forbes, a 2012 study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine linked longer commutes to weight gain, high blood pressure, more stress and less life satisfaction.

Google Maps indicates it takes 35 minutes (without traffic) to drive from Weston Hills Country Club to the 401 building on East Las Olas Boulevard! That’s just under 6 hours of commuting each week – and that is only if you get lucky with rush hour traffic!

But, if you lived at the Village at Victoria Park your commute would be 7 minutes door to door! You might be happier and healthier – and you wouldn’t need to sacrifice single-family home living or the security of a gated community for your short commute.  Even better, you’d own a brand new home for less than the cost and aggravation of a rehab or tear down in other Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods like Las Olas or Rio Vista!

The Village at Victoria Park is a gated community of only 30 brand new, single-family homes in the heart of east Fort Lauderdale.

Priced from the $600’s – $800’s, The Village at Victoria Park offers great value in a walkable location, minutes from the beach, shopping, restaurants, parks, entertainment – and downtown Fort Lauderdale.

There’s no more excuse for a long commute when you could enjoy the best of both worlds…a brand new, single-family home close to work and all the best amenities Fort Lauderdale has to offer.

When was the last time you walked to a restaurant for dinner or to a movie? You can do that at The Village at Victoria Park.

Can you see yourself biking to Fort Lauderdale beach for a Saturday morning swim? It’s a quick mile to the beach from here.

How long is your commute? Isn’t it time you stopped sitting in traffic and started living a less stressful, more active lifestyle?
