Bradenton, FL (Feb. 11, 2014) - Sales at The Concession, an exclusive, gated golf course community located between Sarasota and Manatee Counties, have kicked off quickly this year with 15 homesites under contract to close in the first quarter.

The strong sales pace follows a stellar year in 2013, with 32 lot closings, and the strong demand will dictate a price increase on homesites on February 15, 2014. “We continue to see increasing evidence of recovery in the luxury custom home real estate market that continues to get stronger,” said Mark Bruce, director of sales at The Concession Real Estate Company. “The Concession’s full scale comeback really began just prior to last year’s Parade of Homes, sponsored by the Manatee Sarasota Building Industry Association. We are priced right and are excited to welcome guests at this year’s event starting in about two weeks,” said Bruce.

At this year’s Parade of Homes, The Concession will feature two new models--the brand new Verona by Lee Wetherington Homes and the award winning Amalfi, by Arthur Rutenberg Homes.

Several other new models will open this year, creating a new “model row” in The Concession featuring additional top regional builders including: John Neal Homes, Anchor Builders, John Cannon Homes, and Holliday Builders.

The community is seeing an explosion of new home construction as well, with 15 homes currently underway, and another 10 to start in the next 90 days.

The Concession features the area's top builders and home-sites that present Florida living like no other Southwest Florida community. One-Acre homesites are currently priced from the low $200's with home/lot packages from $899k.
