March 2018 Update | The West Villages Venice FL | newhomes.davidbarrhomes.com

As your Venice and Sarasota new homes specialist, it's my job to keep you up to date on the latest news. 


I’ve been specializing in new home sales in Sarasota and Venice for a while now.
We’ve been in a tight resale market, which is causing home buyers in our area to look at new construction homes. If you’ve heard about new home starts being down nation wide, that absolutely does not apply to our local market here in Sarasota and Venice.

By the way, while we’re on the subject, you absolutely need your own Realtor when you’re looking for a new home. The builder advertised prices are the same. They rely on us to help them, and you should rely on me to help you. Check out my podcast on this subject.

I'm keeping you up to date on the latest news from The West Villages in Venice FL, the country's 5th best selling master planned community.

Quite a bit is happening in The West Villages, including a new neighborhood about ready to open for sales, the rapid construction progress at the Atlanta Braves spring training facility, and plans for a town center are taking shape.

What happens after you have decided on the new home community and floor plan?
So you’ve toured model homes and are ready to start the new home buying process. The next step involves reserving a home site. Builders release home sites for sale in small batches. Part of this is the local government permitting process, and part of it is the builder creating a favorable supply versus demand situation, in other words, a sales technique.

Take this next piece of advice to heart: This step in buying your new home is where failure and disappointment happens most. IF you have selected just THE PERFECT lot in the community, you must be prepared act on reserving it immediately. This is not for the faint of heart or if you are the type of person who often has buyer’s remorse. The fact is that our local Sarasota and Venice real estate market is extremely active, and there are more buyers than available home sites at any one time.

The builders know this. If you fail to reserve your preferred hom…
