Parrish, Fla. – (July 25, 2022) – Neal Land & Neighborhoods, a Manatee and Sarasota-based master-planned community developer is seeing steady sales at its flagship community in Parrish, North River Ranch. KB Home and Park Square Homes, two of the home builders in the award-winning community, are near sellout with only limited opportunities left for their single-family home models within the community’s Brightwood neighborhood, available to view here.

“The combination of thoughtful design and a wide selection of home models offered across a broad price range, in addition to the variety of lifestyle and active living amenities throughout our community, continue to drive strong homebuyer demand at North River Ranch,” said John A. Neal, president of Neal Land & Neighborhoods. “The home builders at North River Ranch are focused on marketing their quick move-in homes available in our Brightwood and Riverfield neighborhoods. We still have 72 homesites to finalize with a home builder ready for sale this fall in our third neighborhood, Wildleaf, and as we continue on track with development, discussions have opened with home builders for our future phases.”

At Wildleaf, home builder Neal Communities, has construction underway for their villas and single-family homes, starting prices are yet to be announced. Wildleaf will offer a total of 377 homes and will feature water and conservation view homesites with convenient access to the community’s next central amenity center, the Greenway – the community’s main pedestrian and bikeable artery – planned trails, and future middle school. The neighborhood will also connect to the existing pools, parks and recreation at Brightwood and Riverfield.

According to Neal, “Homebuyers recognized the advantage of purchasing a new home and instantly having gained substantial equity. They also appreciate the benefit of buying early in a master-planned community as we see more people interested in the opportunity to customize their homes to their needs without having to worry about making renovations or updates any time soon.”

Neal adds, “We continue to see out-of-state transplants in the region, but a large portion of homebuyers in Parrish and specifically North River Ranch are coming from nearby and now denser areas like Tampa and Sarasota. Regarding construction progress, we’ve got exciting developments underway at North River Ranch including new amenities, the expansion of the community-wide trails, the upcoming Market Walk grocery-anchored plaza, and the future health-oriented Village Center that will allow residents to walk or bike to shopping and businesses from any part of North River Ranch.”

Some of these new amenities include the Riverfield Park on schedule to open later this August. Located nearby the A-rated elementary school of Barbara A. Harvey Elementary School, it will include a playground and concrete foosball and table tennis. A six-acre dog park is scheduled to open in September and the first 9+ miles of the 24+ miles of trailway systems connecting the first two neighborhoods are open.
