Southwest, Florida – Neal Communities blazed through the summer season and finished the third quarter of 2013 with strength – breaking last year’s record 442 home sales ahead of schedule. The Lakewood Ranch-based, new home builder sold 65 homes in September, climbing to 657 total so far year to date.
“With several new communities that grand opened this year plus the favorable market conditions, we have experienced tremendous sales success,” said David Hunihan, director of sales for Neal Communities. “As we head into the traditional real estate season over the next few months, we anticipate similar results that will make 2013 the best year in company history,” said Hunihan.
The greatest contributor to Neal’s home sales in September was the fast selling and popular community, Central Park at Lakewood Ranch with 12 sales. Last month Neal also sold 11 homes at Grand Palm, a master planned community in Venice boasting a variety of amenities. Other notable numbers and communities include nine home sales at Sugar Mill Lakes, Neal’s newest community in Palmetto; eight homes at Villa Palmeras in Estero, and six homes at Woodbrook in Sarasota.
