In a high-demand housing market, builders at the master-planned community surpass $45M in sales volume in the first three months of 2021

Neal Land & Neighborhoods reports stronger than anticipated sales during the first quarter of 2021 at its master-planned community in Parrish, North River Ranch. The builders at the flagship community, currently in phase one of development, inked 127 total sales, far exceeding the projection of 85 sales. 

“It’s normal to see strong home sales activity during the winter months when northerners are vacationing in Florida, however, this momentum is unprecedented,” said John A Neal, President of Neal Land & Neighborhoods. “Between the pandemic driving people out of the city and the popularity of new construction homes, especially in a thoughtfully planned, highly-amenitized community. North River Ranch provides the perfect option for homebuyers and a great opportunity for builders in a thriving housing market.” 

A total of five home builders are actively selling in the community, including Centex, KB Home, Homes by WestBay, Park Square Homes and David Weekley Homes. Neal Communities begin selling townhomes later this month.

The five home builders have collectively closed $45.4 million in sales volume. The average home sold for $357,000 and is on average 2,272 square feet. More than 60 homes at North River Ranch are now occupied. Each of the award-winning home builders offer a wide selection of high-tech, energy-efficient single-family homes and townhomes of varying size. Residents at North River Ranch have access to two amenity centers, future biking and hiking trails, playgrounds, open green space, and at build-out, two village centers serving the community with a grocery store, restaurants, medical, offices, and shopping. Commercial lease opportunities are available at both North River Ranch village centers, which will serve over 6,000 homeowners within walking distance of the hub.
