LAKEWOOD RANCH HAS RECORD-BREAKING SALES
IN FIRST TWO MONTHS OF 2011
As Lakewood Ranch celebrates winning several awards in the 2011 Home Builder’s Association Parade of Homes – including best community, best amenities and best green community awards – there is also another reason to celebrate. The first two months of 2011 have been record-breaking for new home sales in Lakewood Ranch. There were 77 new home sales and reservations in January and February of this year, totaling more than $5.3 million dollars in new lot sales alone.
The numbers compare to 13 sales and reservations and $1.5 million in lot sales during the same time period in 2010. “The start of this year has been extremely positive for new home building on the Ranch,” said Milt Flinn, LWR Communities’ president. “It feels good to see the market turning around and to see how crowded our models and information centers are! Our builders are busy again and by the end of the first quarter of 2011, there will be 50 new home models to see throughout Lakewood Ranch— a number that is unprecedented in the state of Florida.”
Several new neighborhoods and models have opened recently, including Belleisle and Secret Harbor in Country Club East. Belleisle has four new models open by Neal Communities in addition to a new resident clubhouse and gathering area with a resort-style pool for all homeowners in Country Club East to enjoy. The newest model in Secret Harbor by John Cannon Homes is also now open. Secret Harbor has upgraded landscaping and architectural requirements including beautiful brick paver sidewalks with homes and homesites surrounding the large Lake Royale. LWR Communities just added a beautiful fountain to the lake, which is dramatically lit up at night.
In addition to the two new neighborhoods in Country Club East, LWR Communities is pleased to announce the newest neighborhood within The Lake Club, Anchorage Place. This new, gated community within the exclusive Lake Club features plantation-size homesites, which are all over an acre in size with the possibility of combining homesites for an even bigger parcel. These sites range in price from $475-$800K and two have already been sold.
Lakewood Ranch is the 8,500-acre award winning master-planned community in Sarasota and Manatee counties on the West Coast of Florida. Just minutes from the gulf coast beaches, and cultural assets in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch is already home to more 15,000 residents and features A-rated schools, a hospital, the Sarasota Polo Club, its own Main Street with theaters, shopping and dining, and four million square feet of commercial property.
