Lakewood Ranch, Fla. – Neal Communities notched 62 home sales in June, plus broke an all-time company record with 97 home closings. June’s sales bring Neal’s year to date sales total to 445, as the fast-growing southwest Florida home builder continues to dominate the region’s new home market.
“Our record sales numbers this year certainly help sustain our rapid growth pattern,” said Michael Storey, president of Neal Communities. “As the market continues to hold steady, we are forging ahead with new product, new communities, and plenty of inventory for home buyers ready to purchase and move in immediately,” said Storey.
Storey and team anticipate celebrating a huge milestone late this summer, with Neal Communities expecting to close on its 10,000th home.
June sales took place in 16 communities in the southwest Florida region. Grand Palm, Neal’s master planned community in Venice, continued its sales success with 12 sales. Other noteworthy communities included Central Park in Lakewood Ranch and Eagle Trace in Manatee County with eight sales each, and Forest Creek in Parrish with seven sales.
