LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. – Homes sales for Neal Communities (NealCommunities.com), southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, increased steadily in the month of July, with 104 sales reported across the company’s divisions.
The high number of sales represents an increase over sales in May and June, despite the fact that typically late summer can be a challenging time for the new home market.
Four Neal Communities neighborhoods had impressive sales numbers last month, including the Grand Palm and Milano communities in Venice with 10 sales each and the Magnolia Point and Windwood communities with seven sales each.
“Similar to the national home buying market, just over half of our buyers this month fall into the over 55 age demographic,” said Michael Storey, president of Neal Communities. “The many amenities we offer, including clubhouses, upgraded home features and fitness facilities, appeal to these buyers. Our specialization in this market segment accounts for our robust sales.”
The Grand Palm community features amenities for all families and age groups, including an activities coordinator, fitness facility, resort-style pool, walking trails, biking trails, sports courts and more. Residents can choose from a large variety of floor plans, and homes in the master-planned community start at $178,990.
Residents of the active community of Milano enjoy a busy social calendar, with a new clubhouse opening this month to include a pool, spa, bocce ball courts, a pickleball court and a dog park. Villas and single-family homes in the community start at $224,990.
Sarasota’s Magnolia Point community offers homebuyers the opportunity to purchase homesites with water and preserve views. The 74-home, gated community also includes ample preserve space. Homes in the neighborhood start at $285,990.
Over half of the Windwood community in north Venice is dedicated to open space, including wetlands and lakes. This gated community with 90 homes includes six floor plan options as well as one-story and two-story designs. Homes start at $275,990.
