David Barr's blog about new homes for sale in Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch. I specialize in helping home buyers locate and purchase new construction homes from the 40 new construction neighborhoods I serve in two of the top 5 master planned communities in the country.
Updated Toscana Isles Video Tour Sept 2018 | Venice FL
As your Venice FL area new home sales specialist, I stay on top of the latest news and developments to help you with your new home purchase. Remember, new homes cost the same when you're working with your own Realtor
I regularly update the video tours of these neighborhoods so you can see the construction progress. Over the weekend I was in Toscana Isles.
Toscana Isles has one of the best new construction deals around, with condominiums starting in the mid $200,000's and single family homes starting in the low $300,000's. For a low HOA fee, residents here enjoy a resort-level community pool set on a gorgeous lakefront peninsula, a dog park, tennis, and manned guard gate.
I have a Beachwalk update for you. The builder (Divosta) is estimating Beachwalk will be open for pre-sales in fall of 2020. This means you can reserve your home site with a refundable deposit. In case you haven't heard about Beachwalk, it's the sister community to Divosta's highly popular Islandwalk in Venice. I believe Beachwalk will be as popular, if not more, mostly due to it's location value. It's only 2.5 miles from Manasota Key beach via the northern bridge on Manasota Beach Road. Beachwalk will not have the extensive lake views of Islandwalk, but a restaurant and bar and grill are planned here. I expect an amenities center that will closely match the clubhouse and pool in Islandwalk. Model homes for Beachwalk won't be completed by the time they open for pre-sales. Pulte, which owns Divosta and Del Webb, just opened a brand new model park in Del Webb Lakewood Ranch. You can view my photo gallery of these new floor plans at lakewoodranchd
The model home at Caribbean Village is now open! DR Horton has also provided me with two floor plans and pricing below: If you would like more information on other Caribbean Village floor plans or area amenities, please contact me.
Did you know that working with your own Realtor costs you nothing if you're buying a new construction home? One of the advantages of working with your own Realtor when buying a new home in The West Villages is that I can compile information on all the new home communities, and put that information on my real estate website at davidbarrhomes.com. You don't have to click on all the different builder websites for the different communities, uncertain that you found them all. That's why I collected all the information about The West Villages CDD and HOA fees, and put it all on one page on my website: davidbarrhomes.com/west-villages-venice-fl-fees . Interested in other master planned communities nearby? I also serve Lakewood Ranch , and the 100% solar-powered Babcock Ranch in south Charlotte County, a little over an hour south of The West Villages.
