West Villages Continues to Attract Home Buyers
West Villages, FL—Annual home starts in the West Villages area totaled 765 in the period ending June 30, 2016, according to MetroStudy. This includes the neighborhoods of Sarasota National, Grand Palm, IslandWalk at West Villages and Gran Paradiso at West Villages. Based on the same research, there were 611 starts in Lakewood Ranch and 261 in Palmer Ranch.
According to MetroStudy, “Growing retiree demand, solid job growth, and low interest rates all fueled an impressive quarter for housing activity in Sarasota/Bradenton. In fact, the quarterly starts pace of 1,492 units was the single best quarter for starts since 3Q 2006.”
“This is a place people want to live and grow their businesses. We believe demand will continue to grow,” said West Villages General Manager Martin Black. “In fact, the West Villages Office Park is almost fully leased. Companies see the value and great future here and want to have a foot in the door early.”
“Pulte Group’s DiVosta Homes at Island Walk has had a very busy summer, selling 30 homes in July and over 20 homes in August,” stated Pulte Group General Sales Manager-Southwest Florida George Zalucki. “Part of our success can be attributed to the release of two brand new floor plans. The Seagrove and Cascadia plans are a part of our new 4-unit attached villa series of homes there were released for sale in June.”
