A New Legacy home.

Build it and they will come. That's the mission behind New Legacy Homes in Tampa, so long as the home is built right. Business Observer reports:

That’s exactly what New Legacy Homes has done. The Tampa homebuilder was founded just three years ago. But it has already built 18 high-end, spacious custom homes — mostly in South Tampa, and many on spec — with at least 10 more on the way.

“I discovered that there’s a hell of an opportunity in South Tampa,” says co-founder and co-owner Steve Wiltse, who worked for luxury homebuilder WCI Communities, now part of Lennar, and Beazer Homes for several years. “I saw the price points, the quality and spec level, and I saw a huge void.”

Wiltse and co-founders Rob June and Brandon Roberts wanted to build homes with construction that doesn’t “cut corners” and utilizes materials, such as Icynene foam core insulation and variable-speed air conditioning that are appropriate for the region. They also insist on bringing houses to market laden with the latest innovations in home automation, like video doorbells and Wi-Fi enabled thermostats.
