The Jewel at Main Street, Sarasota, is a shining example of the robust recovery of the luxury condo market from the housing downturn during the Great Recession. This 18-story condominium is a mixed-use development with 19 residences expected to be fully complete before end-2015.
Custom and semi-custom homes have a struck a chord in the Manatee-Sarasota real estate market with two developers focused on these residential types—Neal Signature Homes and Heritage Builders—experiencing robust sales in 2015. For this year’s first half, the Lakewood Ranch-based Neal Signature Homes already sold 62 new residences, more than 50% over the 40 residences it sold during the same period in 2014. For the whole of 2015, this homebuilder expects to sell from 80 to 90 new builds. more>>
