The West Villages New Construction Update Sept 2018 | Venice FL

This week, I visited Renaissance, The Preserve at The West Villages, and Oasis at The West Villages in Venice, FL. I periodically visit every major new home community in Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch to stay on top of the latest news and developments.  I'm always amazed at how quickly things change. The pool and clubhouse in The Preserve is completed, and most of the first phase of villas is under construction, with no vacant lots. While The Preserve doesn't have a huge "wow" factor such as big water views or a massive club house, many buyers will like the price points and the fact that only 224 residences will be built here. New community pool and club house at The Preserve Construction at Oasis is coming along quickly.  The model homes have been open for a couple of months now, but since my last visit in July, a lot more homes are being built, and the monument sign by Tamiami Trail is up.  Oasis will have 134 executive homes with 3 car garages an

Milano September 2018 New Construction Update | Venice FL

I got more video tours updated over the weekend, and this one is for Milano in Venice FL. There's been a lot of construction progress in the southern phases of Milano, along Border Road.  If you've been down that way, you can't miss the large area across Jacaranda that has been cleared.  Neal Communities, builders of Milano, own that land.  I expect they will be announcing a new phase for Milano on that land parcel in the coming months. Milano has sold well thanks to it's combination of low HOA fees and no CDD fees. For more on Milano, including current MLS listings, visit my website
