March marks 102 sales for Neal Communities
Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, continued its sales streak last month with 102 new homes sold in March, spanning communities from Hillsborough to Collier Counties.
Grand Palm in Venice, Sarasota County’s first community built under the Sarasota 2050 plan requirements, continued to lead the pack with 13 new home sales in March. Eagle Trace near Lakewood Ranch followed closely with 11 sales. Other communities included Boca Royale Golf & Country Club in Englewood with 10 sales, Villa Amalfi in Sarasota and Villages of Milano in Venice with nine sales. The company also tallied five sales in Tampa and five sales at Neal’s newest community, The Ridge at Crossing Creek, which opened last weekend.
“Since February, the market has continued to remain steady with traffic and sales numbers at a normal pace for this time of the year,” said Michael Storey, president of the Lakewood Ranch-based new homebuilder. “Our continued focus on creating a diverse and robust line up of communities and floor plans attracts a wide range of homebuyers with timelines for occupancy ranging from immediate to up to one year from now. These factors plus our value and emphasis on superior customer service have allowed us to remain a market leader in southwest Florida.”
Two popular communities are expected to be sold out this month for Neal Communities – Forest Creek in Bradenton and Central Park in Lakewood Ranch, each with only five opportunities remaining for new homebuyers.
Also in March, Neal Communities took part in the Tampa Bay Builders Association Parade of Homes and the Desoto Charlotte Parade of Homes.
In 2015, Neal Communities closed 989 homes for families in Florida – the most since its 1970 inception and pulled permits for over 1,200 homes in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Additionally, the prolific firm was recognized nationally as Professional Builder Magazine’s Builder of the Year.
