North River Ranch Will Surpass $75 Million In 2024 Sales Before End Of Second Quarter

4 min read /

PARRISH, Fla. (June 14, 2024) – North River Ranch, an award-winning community in Parrish, is on track to surpass $75 million in 2024 new home sales by the end of this year’s second quarter. Cardel Homes, Pulte Homes, Homes by WestBay, Neal Communities, and David Weekley Homes are home builders actively selling in the new home community. North River Ranch is the flagship master-planned community by local land developer Neal Land & Neighborhoods.

The sell-out of Brightwood neighborhood at North River Ranch, encompassing 620 single-family homes, and Homes by WestBay reaching one-million-dollar home sales in the neighborhood were significant contributors to this milestone. Several home builders are expanding their single-family home offerings in two new neighborhoods as part of the latest phase for the master-planned community. A Homes by WestBay new model home is underway in Longmeadow, with other builder models in these neighborhoods expected to open in early fall. 

“We knew sales would trend upwards given the top-tier home selection from our group of home builders at North River Ranch, but reaching one-million-dollar home sales exceeded our expectations,” said John A. Neal, president of Neal Land & Neighborhoods. “With a wide variety of amenities, schools, and soon a hospital at walking distance from the community, we’re able to attract a discerning homebuyer segment searching for a healthy and active lifestyle.”

Development at North River Ranch continues to ramp up with the progress of Market Walk at North River Ranch, the community’s first shopping plaza. Following the opening of Publix on March 21, a range of quality services and dining options will join Market Walk later this summer.

“North River Ranch is right where it needs to be”, adds Neal. “We’ve been selective with our home builders and the community’s commercial development, including Publix and our Market Walk Plaza tenants, to be on par with the caliber of North River Ranch.”

Model homes from Homes by WestBay and Pulte Homes are located in the community’s Brightwood neighborhood. Model homes from Cardel Homes and David Weekley Homes are located in Riverfield, and Neal Communities’ model homes and villas are located in Wildleaf.
