Lakewood Ranch, FL (Oct. 10, 2014) - A sizzling September with 62 new home sales brings Neal Communities’ year to date total to 651 sales. The fast-paced sales trend plus several new community openings set the prolific southwest Florida builder on a path to another record-breaking year with one quarter remaining.
