Lakewood Ranch Update | David Barr, Broker Associate |

Today I’ll be talking about Lakewood Ranch.  As I’m sitting down to create this blog post,
I’ve just finished a major project, which is my stand alone website for Lakewood Ranch
(with an easy to remember URL,  and a comprehensive video of the area:
attractions, lifestyles, new construction, business, and health care.

It was also just announced that Lakewood Ranch has moved up to the 2nd best
selling master planned community in the country.  
I may be one of only a handful of local Realtors who serve two of the top 5 best
selling master planned communities, when you include The West Villages in Venice.
There is a combined 21 new home communities between Lakewood Ranch and The West Villages.
That’s a lot of options for you as a home buyer.
New homes cost the same when you’re working with your own Realtor,
so let me help you narrow your choices to find what’s right for you.

Lakewood Ranch has something for everyone.  
It’s home to luxury golf courses such as The Lake Club, the Country Club at Lakewood Ranch,
and Royal Lakes Club in Country Club East. It has A-rated schools and top rated health care at
Lakewood Ranch Medical Center.  Main Street always has events and activities.
You can buy a brand new town home or condo for just over $200,000 or build your
dream estate home with top local architects and builders.

Among the newest of the new construction in Lakewood Ranch, Polo Run is
offering affordable solar power as part of your new build package.  Del Webb,
known for active adult lifestyles, has a gorgeous resort level club house and lagoon pool,
and Arbor Grande is offering both town homes and single family homes with a coastal
theme that connects to Lakewood Ranch’s 150 mile hiking and biking trail system.

This trail system connects several community parks.  Watch my video at and you’ll see how much green space has been set aside.

You may be surprised to know that Lakewood Ranch is attracting buyers from
Tampa and Orlando, and from affluent areas in Sarasota such as Longboat Key and downtown.  
I’m also seeing snowbirds buying here from the typical northeast states, and others looking to
escape high tax states such as Maryland and California.

Sales in Lakewood Ranch are up 33% for the first six months of this year compared
to the same time last year.  Contact me with any questions, and to schedule a tour.
