Paws in The Park

Posted by Metro Places on Friday, August 20, 2021


Sit. Play. Socialize. 

Saturday, July 31, dawned bright and without a cloud in the sky; it was a perfect morning for nearly 50 residents and their four-legged companions to play and socialize with their fellow neighbors at our inaugural Metro Places’ Paws in the Park event. 

The event took place at the dog park near the Lagoon, where dogs of all sizes romped with their neighborhood pals and residents made new friends over coffee and snacks from the Bean Bar Co. Local vendors provided delicious dog-friendly snacks for pet guests: refreshing oat milk frozen pupsicles from Max’s Pet Market, and decadent peanut butter pupcakes and whole wheat treats from Bossy River Dog Treats.

Spanning 480 acres in Wesley Chapel, with a resident population of 1,200 and limited homes still available, the vision of Union Park is almost at fruition. As we look back at 7 years of growth at Union Park, it’s clear residents who bought homes will reap the benefits of living in a completed master planned community. Children grow up and neighbors thrive in a tight-knit community designed for deeper connections—with nature, family, and oneself. Union Park is a perfect example of how living in a mature, well-designed master planned community can be a magical experience.

Buying a New Construction Home

Buying a New Construction Home – What to Know

Though there are a lot of similarities, buying a new construction home isn’t the same as buying an existing home. Read through some of what you’ll need to know before buying the home to make sure you’re aware of what needs to be done and how this might differ from other home sales.

You Will Need a Real Estate Agent

It’s easy to think that bypassing the real estate agent is a good idea since you’re directly dealing with the builder, but this isn’t the case. The builder pays the agent’s fees, so there’s no harm in having a real estate agent, and they’ll help make sure everything is done right, and you’re protected through contracts during the sale and the building process.
