Early sales success at Central Park

Last week Neal Communities unveiled the massive Central Park at Lakewood project, projected ultimately to have 800 homes. These are the first homes at Lakewood Ranch to be built north of State Road 70.

A lot of hopes are riding on this project, one of the largest in Manatee County since the real estate market meltdown.

So, how did they do in their first weekend of being open for business?

Neal reports 15 contracts in three days: 13 contracts for Neal and two for Bruce Williams Homes.

Prices start at $126,990.

“As we have seen this year so far, the buyers are definitely out there. The smart buyers, who are responsible for the majority of the traffic we are currently seeing at our communities, are making deals now, because this is the time for buyers to get more value for their home-buying dollars,” said Pat Neal, president of Neal Communities in a press release.
