LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (April 28, 2015) – Neal Signature Homes, a Lakewood Ranch-based luxury homebuilder, sold 25 homes in the first quarter of 2015, more than half of all homes sold in 2014.
With four new models unveiled just this year in Wildgrass in Sarasota, Collingtree in Country Club East at Lakewood Ranch, River Wind in Bradenton and Boca Royale Golf & Country Club in Englewood, the company has an average home sales price of $650,000 with an average build time of about six months.
Neal Signature Homes has ambitious goals for the year, with projections for 88 sales and 70 closings in 2015. These lofty objectives are due largely to the explosive growth the company has seen this year and the 64 homes currently under construction in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Neal Signature Homes is currently building in eight communities with a ninth opening this weekend at MiraBay, a 750-acre, master-planned waterfront residential neighborhood located 20 miles south of Tampa in Hillsborough County.
“We’ve purchased property smartly and in great locations,” said Randy Turkovics, president of Neal Signature Homes. “That along with the pent-up demand for inventory in the $450,000 - $650,000 price point has helped spur sales. Buying new is certainly a better value currently than buying a resale or remodeling,” he said.
The company is looking at additional property to add to its portfolio, including three land opportunities that may produce more new home models later in the year.
Almost sold out, there are only five remaining opportunities to build new in the Lakewood Ranch Country Club at Highfield, just seven homesites available in Haddington and nine open homesites in Windy Hill, both in Lakewood Ranch’s Country Club East.
Neal Signature Homes will break ground on a new Highlands model in Country Club East at Lakewood Ranch next month. With almost 2,400 square feet, the new floor plan will feature three bedrooms with a den, two bathrooms, a three-car garage, paver driveway and a tile roof.
