Pat Neal, founder of Neal Communities, interviewed by SNN News 6 about the Florida real estate market.
Neal Communities set a company record for February with 103 new-home sales.
The development and building company has opened five communities so far this year: Windwood and Woodland Trace for Neal Communities, and Collingtree, Wildgrass and River Wind for Neal Signature Homes, which is Neal’s luxury home division.
Neal’s Leisa Weintraub called the region’s real estate market “robust.”
“Consumer confidence is reaching normal levels, and the winter in the north is driving more people to the area,” she said.
Neal Communities, approaching 10,000 home sales in its 40-plus years of operation, will open more communities later this year.
“Buyers have abundant choices,” Weintraub said, including the option to move into a “feature home,” a inventory house, that is professionally furnished and move-in ready.
Neal made its sales throughout Southwest Florida. Nineteen contracts were signed in Grand Palm in Venice. It made seven sales each in Eagle Trace in Bradenton, Reflection Lakes in Naples and Forest Creek in Parrish. Six sales were recorded at both Fairfield in Bradenton and Central Park in Lakewood Ranch.
