lakewood-ranch-aerialLakewood Ranch Realtor Tour for Golf Course Homes

Spent the morning touring the newest communities ( called “Villages” ) in Lakewood Ranch with 8 fellow realtors in the Realtor Liaison Van. For the uninitiated, Lakewood Ranch is Sarasota and Manatee’s newest, youngest, most amenity rich sport’s minded golf course community {neighborhood}.  And can easily be stated that it is  one of the best in all of the Gulf Coast of Florida.

In point form, allow me to provide some of the highlights.

**11,000 homes have been built since 1995, yet the Sarasota golf course community of Lakewood Ranch is only 50% complete!

** this year to date, Lakewood Ranch has sold 575 brand new homes…that’s up 45% from last year!

***Toured the newly renovated main golf clubhouse which is awesome. The second clubhouse, referred to as “The Lodge”, is also totally complete…just a short drive ( or golf cart ride ) into Country Club East.

** Lorraine Road, which currently stretches from University Park to SR70 will now be extended south to meet up with Fruitville Road…an excellent way to downtown, and a different exit to avoid I75 or the crowds at the new University Town Center shopping mall.

lakewood-ranch-map_orig**Within the 17 Villages, there are only 20 authorized builders…including Mattamy Homes (Canadian builder) in the new Harmony section and Del Webb, in the newest 55+ only community called, not surprisingly, Del Webb. This village is planning for two additional golf courses, which would bring the total within Lakewood Ranch to an astonishing 8  (Cypress Links, King’s Dunes, Royal Lakes, Legacy, The Ritz Carlton, Esplanade plus the as yet unnamed courses at Dell Webb.)

**The newest Villages of Mallory Park, Arbor Grande and Savanna or all in full build mode, with a price point to satisfy all budgets…starting as modestly as $200,000.
