Southwest Florida – Neal Communities marked 73 new home sales in July, a more than 66-percent increase from its 44 sales in July 2012. This continues a record-breaking year for the Lakewood Ranch-based, new home builder.
“We are seeing a growing trend of a year round real estate market in Southwest Florida and cash buyers who don’t have to wait on the banks to finalize their purchase,” said David Hunihan, director of sales for Neal Communities. “No longer are the days of a major slowdown in the summer months as buyers now are taking advantage of favorable market conditions that may not last, and our great variety of products – including inventory homes that are available immediately,” said Hunihan.
Notable neighborhoods this month included Grand Palm in Venice with 14 sales, Central Park at Lakewood Ranch with 16 sales, and Villa Palmeras in Estero with nine sales. Neal also sold two homes in Sugar Mill Lakes, a new community in Palmetto, in advance of the models or sales center opening, which will take place later this month.
Only four homes remain at Sawgrass in Venice and Arlington Cove in Englewood is now completely sold out. July sales took place across seventeen communities from Manatee County to Lee County.
