With a convenient East County location, Lakewood Ranch is an attractive master-planned community perfect for an active lifestyle. Miles of well-manicured trails and sidewalks connect residents to each friendly neighborhood, and a host of challenging outdoor recreational activities—including polo, cricket, golf and tennis—provide year-round excitement for sports enthusiasts. Seven splendid villages—Edgewater, Greenbrook, Lakewood Ranch Country Club, Riverwalk, Summerfield, The Lake Club and Country Club East—offer a variety of residential choices and share a dramatic backdrop of pristine preserve, tranquil lakes and gorgeous landscaping.
Lakewood Ranch Residential Statistics
Our Lakewood Ranch office is the company’s first brand-new building custom designed to greet homebuyers and sellers with comprehensive real estate resources. Branch manager Gloria Weed and her team keep their fingers on the pulse of Lakewood Ranch’s residential opportunities to ensure their clients receive the information essential to making wise real estate decisions. As of August 3, Gloria reports that there are only 244 single-family homes actively listed for sale in all of Lakewood Ranch, which constitutes a 6.5-month supply when figuring the 96 homes under contract. As far as pricing, there are only 16 single-family homes for sale under $200,000, and 38 between $200,000 and $300,000.
Lakewood Ranch Agent Activity
As the area’s most trusted real estate specialists, the agents of our Lakewood Ranch office continue to help homebuyers and sellers make the best of this dynamic market. As local experts, they know the importance of pricing properties correctly to meet the demands of the market. A recent example reinforcing the value of correct pricing includes a home listed on June 2 at 13412 Montclair Place for $699,000 by Lakewood Ranch agent John Camino. The property was priced right and showed beautifully, and went under contract on June 11 and closed July 2 at $644,000; an exceptionally expedient sale for any market.
Gloria’s Bottom Line
Inventory is being depleted, and some of the area’s best choices are already gone. Don’t try to time the market. You may lose the perfect property for you and have to settle for less. You might even have to pay more each month, should the interest rates rise.
