Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch new home buyers might be surprised to learn that most are built without impact resistant windows and sliding glass doors, and come instead with a package of protective panels.
Upgrading to impact resistant glass all around your new home is expensive (up to $20,000 depending on the builder and size of the home). Many of my clients have found it would take decades to recoup the added cost through reduced home owner's insurance premiums.
If you're looking at new homes in Lakewood Ranch, Venice and The West Villages, or Sarasota, you need a new home specialist. Remember, new construction costs the same as the builder's advertised prices when you're working with your own Realtor.

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
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.
