New Villa or Single Family Home Comparison | Venice FL | davidbarrhomes.com

Image
You could buy this paired villa for $347,999, or you could buy this single family home with similar amenities in a nearby gated community in the $330,000's, including home site premium and common designer upgrades. 





Even better, the single family home will save you up to $100 per month in energy costs. 

This is why you need a local new home specialist, instead of asking for information from a national website. Where are these single family homes? Contact me for more information.

Skye Ranch New Homes | Sarasota FL | David Barr Realtor

Image
Skye Ranch is a new master planned community coming to Sarasota.

Located east of I-75 off SR 72, at the intersection with Lorraine Road (former Bee Ridge Rd extension), Skye Ranch will have multiple neighborhoods.  Each will have it's own amenities center.  In total, 6000 homes are planned.




There is a tremendous amount of pasture land south of SR 72 and east of I-75. To put the size of 2,000 acre Skye Ranch in perspective, The West Villages has 10,000 acres and Lakewood Ranch has 31,000 acres.

Skye Ranch will have a full range of housing: condos similar to the Garden Condos in Esplanade Palmer Ranch and Esplanade at Lakewood Ranch, paired villas, entry level single family homes, and large executive homes on 90' wide lots.

One of the frustrations new home buyers have with Sarasota new homes is their proximity to I-75 and traffic noise.  Skye Ranch is located far enough east of the interstate to eliminate the noise factor.  Expect winding roads with gorgeous landscaping and lot…

Cielo New Homes | Venice FL | David Barr Realtor

Image
Another new home community called Cielo is getting ready to open in early 2020.

Cielo is located on Jacaranda Blvd, just west of sister community Milano.  There will be a total of 71 new homes, with single family homes and optional 2 story floor plans.

Cielo will have low HOA fees and no CDD fees, with no community club house or pool to maintain.  There will be a playground, dog park and open grassy areas.



Cielo is really geared toward families and multi-generational home buyers, who don't want to pay for a lot of extra amenities they may not use.  It will be very much like Windwood, by the same builder.
Remember, new homes cost the same as the builder's advertised prices when you're working with your own Realtor.  Contact me for more information about Cielo or any other Venice FL area new home community.
