Why Central Florida’s Luxury Homes are Thriving

At Mar 10, 2017

Luxury Custom Home at Reunion Resort

The McNally team has never experienced such a demand for high end luxury homes, despite a rising trend on construction costs!
‘New build’ luxury communities are progressing well and Central Florida’s custom home market has never been so healthy.
Our marketing team are confident that they know why!

Despite a slight reduction in overseas visitors dues to foreign currency rates falling against the dollar, the domestic economy is booming both nationally and locally.
This is driving the biggest demand for large custom homes, as the North American buyers become increasingly aware of the ‘hidden gem’ investment communities such as Reunion Resort.
With its unique ‘short term rental’ zoning, Reunion’s large luxury mansions are no longer a secret.  The word is out that the return on investment is strong.
With what we would describe as ‘serial owners’, we are seeing our previous clients come back for second homes and more.
Structured correctly, with the right product, owner investors are experiencing mid 20% ROI.
All with the benefit of a place they can use themselves for their own vacations!
Ryan McNally – Vice President of McNally Construction Group

The vacation rental market isn’t all that ‘drives the thrive’ within Central Florida’s construction industry.
The world’s theme park capital is also experiencing an unprecedented boom in investment.

  • A whole new water park is emerging in 2017 at Universal Studios (Volcano Bay)
  • Animal Kingdom is reinventing itself as a night time show venue
  • Pandora: The land of Avatar will debut this summer
  • Disney’s Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land are under development at Hollywood Studios
  • Margaritaville Resort is being developed by the 192 area of Formosa.
  • The USTA National Tennis Centre will be calling Lake Nona home shortly
    Kevin Maw – Marketing Manager at McNally Construction Group

The effect of those investments within the region is already creating the next wave of exclusive permanent residential homes.
More than ever, Investor/executives that are going to be calling Florida home.
After all, with year round warmth, unrivaled leisure and entertainment opportunities, we cant think of any place better to be!

Custom Home Design – Seeing Is Believing!

At Feb 13, 2017
McNally Custom Homes

Artist Rendering of a Reunion Resort McNally custom home!

At McNally Custom Homes, we have enjoyed making full advantage of our team of digital rendering experts.
Now our prospective owners can readily visualize their dream homes, long before the dirt is even dug on their undeveloped lots.
More importantly, most prospective Central Florida home owners live out of state, or are non US Citizens, making the reliance upon digital media even more significant.
Modern digital renderings and artists impressions are completely invaluable to the luxury custom home builder.

Can you imagine parting with your life savings for something that you can’t even visualize?
Builders once sketched out designs as 2 dimensional floor plans and trusted that the client was happy with the architect’s judgement.
Even if the occasional client could ‘read’ drawings, the chances were that something ended up as a surprise in the final home.
Unexpected design oversights were every architect’s and builder’s nightmare.
Those unintended mistakes lead to compromised homes that lasted a lifetime!

Digital Renderings – A New Era of Customer Satisfaction!

Thankfully, with our digital interpretations, we can smooth the way for a successful custom build.
Once the preliminary designs are agreed, the McNally architects can create a detailed CAD file (CAD = Computer Aided Design)
From that, we begin the painstaking design of the home’s aesthetic detailing.
Elevations are styled and discussed with clients, and we home in on the eventual feel of the home and its landscaping.
At this point, the design team develops the all important renderings that translate those technical line drawings into ‘a real home’.

Once the renderings are completed, two important processes begin!
The McNally design and construction teams work together to identify areas that will improve the home’s function and appeal.
Floor plans are great, but renderings offer an added perspective of how the finished home will actually be.
Here’s an example of what we look for in renderings;

  • Any aesthetic improvements that can be made (large ’empty’ walls etc)
  • How materials and paintwork interact (we can change colors at the click of a button!)
  • Do any areas of the home lack curb appeal?
  • Will large windows need some consideration for privacy etc
  • Does the home need more or less detail to maximize the aesthetic appeal?
  • How does the home interact with nearby buildings of sight lines etc
  • What landscaping will accentuate the appeal of the home?
  • How sunlight affects the home during parts of the day

Once we adjust those initial points, we send the first pass to the client.
The responses are always positive, even if the client spots something that they’d like to change.
Replies always include words like ‘Wow’ or ‘Awesome’ once the client has quickly viewed the design.
This is the client’s opportunity to explore the design and add their feedback to the McNally design team.

From that point, we can adjust the detailing even further, or if the client requests; offer different angles of the home and produce ‘3D’ flyovers and 360 tours of the home’s exterior or interior.

Our general business goal at McNally is to exceed our customer’s expectations, by building the finest luxury custom homes within Central Florida.
Advanced design processes are a wonderfully productive and satisfying way of achieving that!

Top 10 Tips For A Perfect Luxury Home – Part 3 of 3

At Feb 07, 2017

Contemporary luxury bedroom

Living
Perhaps one of the most important yet difficult rooms in a home to design, the living room has to deal with the biggest workload.
Tradeoffs are inevitable;
Lots of natural daylight puts a spring in our step, but can interfere heavily with TV screens.
Nice tall double height ceilings are impressive, but late night chatting can travel up into bedrooms.
Understanding how a family will function in a home will enable the best design.
Placement of the living room in relation to the rest of the home is key to keeping the family connected together, and a surge in open layout designs has been hugely popular.
Looking for ideas on living room design?  Try this blog post on HouseBeautiful.com

Dining
Sofas, breakfast bars and nooks have pushed the formal dining table out of common use these days, but a great dining room is a pleasure to use on special occasions.
With enough room for elbows and walking around, even the smallest formal dining room can add a little magic to a family occasion or celebration.
Accents tend work very well when based around a table centre piece, a great light fixture and some cool artwork.
If you have room to spare for some accent chairs and cabinet, the dining room will reward your efforts!
Some great dining room designs

Bedrooms
Perhaps the most ‘under planned’ room of the home, the bedrooms take care of for at least a third of the day, but often get treated as a ‘box’ with a door on it.
Often bedrooms are designed with ‘Now’ in mind, but people’s needs change rapidly and every effort to ‘future proof’ a bedroom design can pay rewards.
Bedrooms need to be warm, bright and welcoming by day, yet cozy, restful and quiet by night.
Positioning is key for a restful night, away from pool pumps, AC units and other noisier family members.
Consideration should be given to how a bedroom for pre-schooler will cope with that same kid as a college student.
Space for relaxation, study, hobbies and music are the key to success of a great bedroom design.
Enabling the bedroom owner to play a role in design and decor is always a great move (sometimes in moderation!).
Some great visual ideas for bedroom designs.
Design tips for rooms with limited space.

Bathrooms
Bathrooms really fall into two distinct categories, defined mainly by lifestyle.
If kids are happy just to have their own shower and privacy, a nicely tiled, relatively simple bathroom can do the trick and at a relatively low cost.
After all, most kids want to spend as little time in that room as possible!
Things get a little more costly when the bathroom begins to serve as an extension of our lifestyle.
If your epitome of luxury, is a glass of wine by candle light, chatting to your partner, then costs are starting to rise already.
The size of the bathroom, the tiling and room for seating and twin vanities soon bump the price up, but it’s your dream home!
Teenagers might not want to take a candlelit bath in your top specification dream bathroom, but they may want to get ready, put their makeup on with their best friend chatting beside them.  That adds a little extra space onto your oldest daughter’s bathroom for sure!
Some great visual ideas for bathroom designs.

Storage
Christmas, Halloween and hobbies place an unexpected burden on your storage needs.
So do seasonal clothing and equipment.
Be sure to plan ahead and build in as much storage space as possible, but equally don’t go crazy.  More space = more clutter!

Automation
Automation, (the internet of things), home security and lighting control are all hot topics at the home design shows.
Although technology is changing rapidly, the infrastructure is thankfully stable.  In other words, what you commit to now, probably won’t need a major rewire of your home in 10 years time.
Cat5 cabling, WiFi and Bluetooth are industry standards for the ‘bells and whistles’ of Hi-Tech gadgetry.
Technology is always changing though, and the best advice appears to be to tread lightly, keep costs and complexity to a minimum, but design your automation needs around the lifestyle of your family.

Top 10 Tips For a Perfect Luxury Home – Part 2 of 3

At Jan 18, 2017

Designer Kitchen Reunion Resort Florida

Accents
Whenever you walk into a magnificent room, there’s usually one, maybe two signature accents that define that room as being special.
Often inexpensive, rarely small, those accents add to the ambiance, without overpowering the whole landscape of a living space.
From simple sheets of mirrored glass, to a magnificent occasional table or vase, a carefully placed accessory can have the same effect as a well chosen tie or piece of jewelry.
Accents offer the opportunity to add a statement into a living space and should never be used to ‘fill a void’.
Check out Trulia’s 2017 Design Trends

Colors
Light neutral and natural tones are often highly recommended by realtors as a ‘safe bet’.
They help sell homes, mainly because they offer the least distraction to a buyer, but for a family home, it can often pay to become a little bolder!
For some inspiration, don’t get too hung up on any one article on what’s trending!  After an hour of research you will soon discover that EVERY color is trending according to the experts.
Our advice is to just do a simple Google Image search for ‘Best Home Decor‘ and pick out the images that suit your needs best.
After all, your family will be living there!

Lights
We mentioned jewelry in our accents section.
From an exterior perspective, lighting is the jewelry hero of modern architecture.
With fabulous and diverse designs, sophisticated control systems all coupled with incredibly low energy lamps, there has never been a better opportunity to illuminate our homes with care and consideration to our neighbors and the environment.
Advances in energy efficient, directional lighting have increased the opportunity for owners to create welcoming, secure homes, without polluting the air and skies.
Internal lights share those same advancements, keeping heat gain to a minimum, with controllability that we could only have dreamed of 10 years ago.
Auto sensors, color temperature for mood lights and even remote access from a smart phone all add to the magic of a dream home.
Best of all, we’ve practically seen the end of blown fuses, broken filaments and high energy costs from our home’s lighting systems!
For inspiration, check out the Google Image search for luxury lighting ideas.

Windows
Did we mention jewelry before?
OK, our last mention goes to windows.  Often viewed as the eyes of a home, windows keep us warm, dry, insulated from the elements and of course bathed in natural light.
What we often forget, is that they also provide an architect with a huge opportunity to reveal the form of the home from the outside.
A great architect can use windows to reveal subtle details of a home, without forgoing privacy.
Night time is however, the time to use those impressive panes of sealed glass to their full, as they transmit or reflect the available light around them.
As with lighting, technology has advanced, keeping insulation to the highest levels, but preventing solar gain from overloading air conditioning systems.
Investing in great windows is always a great choice.
For inspiration, Google Images search for luxury windows ideas.

Kitchen
Kitchens sell houses.
OK, so you’re building, not selling a house, but this Trulia article makes a perfect point.
People LOVE kitchens, mainly due to the fact that food is such a fundamental and social part of our lives.
Kitchens enable us to take care of those that we love, but demonstrate our creativity to those around us when we cook.
A well designed kitchen, whatever the size, is always the most popular venue for party goers.
Great kitchens tend to have a few important traits; good cabinets that suit the rest of the home, impressive but not costly counter tops, uncluttered surfaces, a few very well chosen accents and great lighting and extraction.
Nice kitchens sell houses because people love nice kitchens.
It’s always worth that extra effort to get this room just perfect!

International Builder Show Drops in at Reunion!

At Jan 16, 2017
2017 International Builders Show

2017 International Builders Show – Orange County Convention Centre

Orlando was the proud host of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) annual exhibition last week.

Importantly for Reunion Resort, 4 bus loads of investors, developers and prospective home owners descended on the community to view the magnificent luxury homes in our prestigious golf community.

The intrigued visitors had booked an ‘industry excursion’ of the region to embark upon a whistle stop tour of 5 luxury home builders from the Master Custom Builder Council within the Central Florida region.
Reunion Resort was represented in the itinerary by McNally Homes President, EJ McNally to offer a ‘before and after’ perspective of the build process.
One of McNally’s 2014 9 bedroom homes on Castle Pines (9394 sqft) was presented by 5 Star Villas Inc offering an insight into the appeal of Reunion Resort’s thriving vacation rental market.

The construction process itself was showcased showcased with McNally’s astonishing 22,000 sqft – 3 floor mansion that is currently in progress on Grand Traverse Parkway.

Reunion Resort Realtor, Cesar Lopez supported EJ McNally during the event, and we caught up with him to find out more about the questions being asked.

“We were definitely encouraged by the interest shown by the industry’s leading figures during the ‘Reunion’ portion of the NAHB showcase.
The delegates seemed to be caught off guard by the level of detail, innovation and high specifications in our luxury vacation rental homes.
The fact that McNally Homes showcased 2 homes speaks volumes about the appeal and quality of their team’s workmanship.
As we presented my client’s 9 bedroom McNally home on Castle Pines, it was clear that the hundred or more visitors had a lot of great questions and interest in Reunion Resort for a vacation rental home.
As we know, its zoning for short term rental, long term rental and residential, does make the resort the most unique opportunity in Central Florida.
We look forward to working with McNally on more successful projects in the future!”

Top 10 Tips For A Perfect Luxury Home – Part 1 of 3

At Dec 26, 2016

Reunion Resort Luxury Home Theater

How often have you walked a home, only to think to yourself; that it simply lacks character?
Homes can be finished to the highest possible level, with the finest natural materials, but that cliche that ‘money can’t buy taste’ is perhaps one of the most uttered phrases in the real estate world.

So, what exactly is character?  How can an owner and builder work together to create a home with ambiance, style and charisma?
We take a closer look, calling upon some great resources from within the custom home industry!

Function
Influenced by a desire to shake off the errors of victorian urban life, eminent Swiss architect Le Corbusier defined a home as a ‘Machine For Living In’.
For many year’s that concept seemed too ‘cold and heartless’.
Today however, the idea of a home being designed as a perfect machine, for living sleeping and most importantly enjoyment, is a fundamental of modern architecture.
Break out areas, entertainment nooks and optimized views are all possible, in any home, given adequate consideration by the prospective owners, the builder and the architect.
Understanding how a family will actually use a home, is the key to a successful design!

Design
‘Wish lists’, ‘must haves’ and function, are the essential starting points of a great custom home, and along with the home’s environment and the location a great architect can begin shaping your dreams.
Owners will be delighted if the fundamentals are considered to the full, and that’s the number one aim of any custom home builder.
With a family of 5, a lot of compromise will be inevitable.  Not everyone gets their way, but a great builder becomes a fabulous mediator throughout the preliminary design process.
The location of the home has the most profound effect on design.
Floor layouts, materials and structure, are all dependent on the precise location of the home.
Harsh winters would dictate that a flat top modern design would be a difficult process in such a snow laden territory.
Dream views over a valley side, will determine the placement of rooms more than any other factor.
Climates will determine if a home needs a mud room from the garage, or a pool bathroom from the lanai.
That may seem obvious, but errors from the start of a project become very expensive to correct if overlooked.
Some great luxury home designs if you are stuck for ideas.  (Our in house design team will custom design your dream home!)

Spaces
Spaces serve so much more purpose than just rooms.  Spaces connect the whole home together, making it so much more than a collection of ‘boxes with doors and windows’.
Beautiful natural light over a stairway can transform an entrance hall into the most impressive centerpiece of a luxury home.
The appeal of a breakfast table is elevated by access onto a landscaped lanai, with hints of shared materials and form.
A cozy, peaceful corner bathed in natural light can become the perfect place for study.
The recent popularism of Feng Shui has heightened the awareness of ‘space’ within a home’s design and the relationship between doorways, windows, light and furnishings is a cornerstone of this ancient Chinese art form.
For owners and builders, the concept of balancing the key features of a home is without doubt one of the most powerful ways to build in a wow factor!
A quick look at how Feng Shui can ease the design process!

Furniture
While tastes differ, one thing should always be constant; the interplay between harmony and contrast.
Furniture selections should form a strong tie to the tastes of its users and to the architectural style of the home.
Balancing the conflict between harmony and contrast is one of the greatest challenges to home decor and it requires an artful eye and creative imagination.
Thankfully, Central Florida is blessed with some of the finest interior designers in the USA, should you want to top off your own ideas with some great advice.

Reunion Resort – A Unique, Luxurious Resort & One of a Kind!

At Dec 13, 2016

excitement-drive-elevation-artist-rendering

A good first impression can work wonders.

—  J. K. Rowling  —

First impressions run deeply and often influence future decisions more than any other stage of an experience.
When guests enter the magnificent Reunion Resort, a magical bond is inevitable.
Beautiful landscaping, irresistible golf courses and stunning luxury vacation homes are bound to impress immediately.
There’s no illusion, that Reunion Resort is a destination of choice for affluent owners and their guests.
The beauty of Reunion Resort is instantly apparent, but the reason for the communities surging popularity requires a little more explanation.

Reunion Resort Quick Facts

  • Located in Kissimmee, FL
  • 5 miles from Walt Disney World – Approximately 12 minutes’ drive
  • Communities generally have a requirement not to rent for less than 7 month terms.
    Reunion was conceived with short term rentals in mind, making it completely unique.
  • 3 PGA Golf courses – Watson – Palmer – Nicklaus
  • 10 resort pools and 5 acre water park
  • Tennis facilities
  • 4 main restaurants/bars
  • Located within easy access of I-4 and 192 routes
  • Good local stores and restaurants

Reunion Resort – Short term/long term rental
No other community within Central Florida permits owners to rent their houses by the week.
Reunion on the other hand, benefited from special zoning that creates a unique opportunity for homes to be purpose built for short term rental investment.
In fact, it would be very difficult to identify any luxury community elsewhere in the USA that has that element of flexibility.
Owners can use the home as a private second residence, place it into a lucrative rental program, or make the community their primary residence.
Of course, there’s freedom to cycle a home back a forth between short term and long term rental.  That flexibility is perfect for owners that are planning to relocate or travel more frequently to Florida.
(With Walt Disney World on your doorstep, owners are never short of friends and family dropping by!)

High quality real estate
Many developments claim to be unique and ‘the best’.
Reunion Resort is often marked as such, but, arguably with good merit.
With a sprawling road network, the golf courses from the ‘master plan’ for Reunion Resort.
Homes enjoy golf course and conservation views rather than ‘back to back’ outlooks from the pool decks.
Within reason, owners can work with one of 5 Reunion approved builders to create highly customized homes within the resort.
Lots can be purchased as single lots from 35ft to 55ft wide, typically 160ft deep.
Many of the larger homes are situated on ‘double lots’ to create a mansion like elevation.
Homes range from 2700sqft to 30,000sqft under air.

Rental Program – ROI
Although returns on investment vary, owners of larger, luxurious homes are experiencing ROI well in excess of 25%.
Emphasis on décor, home theaters, games rooms and themed bedrooms are key to maximum return.
A number of reputable property managers, interior design companies can be recommended prior to ensure that the home gets the greatest possible occupancy and subsequent returns.

High Rental Returns – At Very Competitive Nightly Rates
A couple staying at the Four Seasons Orlando resort will average $300/nt in low season for a very basic hotel room.  Often families will book 3 or 4 rooms for a family vacation.
In Reunion Resort, guests can rent the highest specification mansions, complete with bowling alley, home theater, games room, Turkish bath, huge pool decks and spacious gourmet kitchen for less $84/nt per person in low season when fully occupied with guests.
Far more freedom, space, privacy and fun than the hotel suite.
Guests tend to relax and enjoy the home in between park visits, providing a better vacation experience, and repeat bookings.

Why is Reunion Resort so Unique?

  • Reunion is so close to Walt Disney World, you can enjoy the daily fireworks from the rooftop restaurant within the resort.
    Real estate simply won’t be developed again near Disney World on such a grand scale.
    Travel time into the theme parks is a key factor for vacationers, and Reunion Resort does not disappoint.
  • 3 PGA Golf courses not only set the scene for the community, but they offer a golfer’s paradise all year round.
  • VIPs and wealthy guests seek out Reunion Resort for their vacations and the peaceful, private resort offers privacy to all.

What are the risks of investing in Reunion Resort?

Q: Will Reunion be over supplied with luxury homes?
A: The larger homes at Reunion Resort are in extremely high demand.  Even if the larger lots were all built out, the growing awareness of the luxury mansion style homes is growing.   The huge potential domestic market in North America is becoming increasingly aware of a product that has been very popular with UK and Canadian visitors.
Annually the region is currently experiencing 3% growth on tourism figures of 60 million.

Q: What size home is best for vacation rental home investors?
A: Due to a limited supply, the 8 bedroom and above homes are experiencing the highest occupancies and best nightly rental rates.

Q: What special features make a difference to bookings, rates and occupancy?
A: Great finishes, modern decor, themed rooms, great media rooms and home theaters, attractive and fun outdoor living spaces, games rooms and play areas.  An imaginative and creative approach will reward owners

Q: If I put in the best possible finishes and materials, will I get a good payback?
A: Great finishes are important for rental guests and owners, but we always advise spending wisely when we make selections.

Remodeling After a Natural Disaster Requires Patience and Sentiment

At Nov 08, 2016

When lightning strikes a home, instantaneous damage, displacement and financial worry inevitably comes to the fore of any homeowner’s mind.

In reality, that can be just the very beginning of a lengthy recovery process for a family.

Taking the fallen and charred pieces of a lightning struck property and literally rebuilding it from the ground up, directed by Insurance loss adjusters, the result can often be more down to an out of state administrator than the sentiment of the homesick and anxious family members.

EJ McNally, CEO of McNally Homes, has lived through the pain (and eventual elation), so many times before.  EJ feels that his expert team has developed the chemistry that’s required to return that heartbreaking rubble to the owner, as a true home once more.  

Anxious to stress the importance of his business ideology, EJ points out that ‘McNally feels that it is imperative to build homes not just houses for families to enjoy their special time together in’.

As one of Orlando’s most successful luxury home builder, EJ adds; “It’s so easy to re-build a house, by replacing walls, doors, windows and roofing, but it takes a lot of research, listening and patience to find the subtle detail that each of the home’s residents are so desperate to retain or rediscover.  

Mom’s favorite place to read her book, while she eagerly watches out of a window for the kids return from school, or that welcoming corner of a living room for a playful child to have a private ‘escape’ of their own, are all so easily overlooked in the rush to get a family back home.  “We don’t do that, we take every care to bring the home back to life” boasts EJ with well deserved pride.

Of course, rebuilding a home requires budgetary awareness, there’s no ‘blank check’ in a remodel project, and builders simply can’t go crazy with upgrades.  McNally’s huge purchasing reach has enabled them to procure the best possible materials for the re-modelling side of their luxury homes business to get to work with.

The results of McNally’s skillful efforts were recently revealed in the upscale Lake Butler area of Keene’s Pointe.  

Almost a year ago, a devastating lightning strike thankfully left the owners’ family physically unscathed, but a home in ruins.

EJ’s team have crafted away relentlessly since nature paid a visit to Central Florida that stormy night.

With the help of the family, brainstorming details and ideas, and understanding how each family member connects to the home, they’ve collectively created a beautiful new home out of the torn ruins of 2014.

Using a wide selection of bright, sleek contemporary materials, McNally have brought a sense of openness and freedom to this exciting and re-energized property, without compromising on privacy and without sacrificing the personal detail.

The spacious feel that the owners had always loved is very much alive, and McNally Homes are very pleased that the extra care that they always provide a client has been so well received.

If your precious home is ready for a remodel upgrade, we’d be pleased to hear from you.
