Exceeding the previous month’s sales by nearly 20%, the homebuilders of West Villages Florida, located near Venice and North Port, sold a total of 84 homes in November alone, the development partnership has announced.

“With two weeks remaining in the year, annual home sales for the master-planned community total 1,056, compared to 915 … for the same period in 2017,” a news release says.

In 2018 John Burns Real Estate Consulting named West Villages Florida the fifth fastest selling master-planned community in the country, the release points out.

“West Villages Florida continues to see strong state, regional and national traffic and buyer interest,” the release adds.

During the month of November, more than 800 people visited at least one of the seven unique sales centers within the West Villages community, the release points out.

“In parallel to Florida’s strong housing market, we continue to see increased traffic, buyer interest and sales across all of our communities within West Villages Florida,” said West Villages President Paul Erhardt in the release.

The more than 15,000 acres that comprise West Villages (www.MyWestVillages.com) are located adjacent to the Tamiami Trail corridor in South County, the release explains. The community is being developed by a partnership that includes Mattamy Homes (www.MattamyHomes.com), the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America, and Vanguard Land of Sarasota, the release notes.

Scheduled to open in the fall of 2019, the West Villages Marketplace continues to take shape, the release continues. The 105,000-square-foot shopping center will be anchored by a Publix, the release notes. Preparing for a January 2019 construction launch, the clearing of the site has been completed, and the site leveling is in progress, the release adds.

In addition to the 47,000-square-foot Publix Supermarket, the Marketplace will feature a mix of service providers and restaurants, the release says.
