In Lee and Collier Counties, the first quarter of 2017 marked a period of notable sales for Neal Communities (NealCommunities.com), southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, with 81 home sales throughout its south region.
So far in 2017, its south region, which encompasses Lee and Collier Counties, has seen a sales increase of 35 percent.
“Buyers have a lot to choose from in this area,” said Michael Greenberg, southwest Florida regional president for Neal Communities. “The robust southwest Florida home buying market paired with Neal Communities’ commitment to creating communities of distinction, makes Neal a standout builder to potential homebuyers, who are seeing and experiencing the difference.”
According to the Naples Area Board of Realtors, pending sales were up 9 percent in January and the number of closed homes was up 6 percent, compared to a year ago.
Several Neal Communities neighborhoods sold at an exceptional rate this past quarter, including Watermark, Estero Place and Coastal Key. Additionally, three of its communities are nearing closeout. The well-designed community Canopy in Naples has only 10 homes remaining, private and gated Estero Place in Estero has 12 opportunities available and amenity-rich Reflection Lakes in Naples has just seven homes remaining.
Neal Communities’ newest Avalon community in Naples, Fla. opened in late January 2017 and has already sold 17 homes. The 23-acre neighborhood is the company’s first multifamily, carriage home community in Naples. It features 19 coastal-themed buildings with four floor plans and 152 carriage homes with lake and preserve views. Homes range in size from 1,355 to 1,725 square feet.
In addition to an increase in home sales, Neal Communities’ south region has also seen growth in the team during 2017, with a new homes sales assistant and the addition of an online sales concierge.
