Sold History and Market Report

Rapalo Homes for Sale – Venice, Florida 34293


Rapalo is one of the four communities in Venice wherein leading U.S. homebuilder D.R. Horton has set its footprints. Its sister communities in the city are the Preserve at West Villages, Toscana Isles and Caribbean Village.

The Texas-based D.R. Horton designated its Express Homes unit specializing in affordably priced starter homes for the development of Rapalo. This community is platted for a total of 109 home sites in a parcel located east of Englewood Road (S.R. 776) just south of the southern terminus of Jacaranda Boulevard.

Well-established Neighbors


This area teems with pre-owned Venice homes for sale, including those in two large, well-established communities flanking Rapalo. Adjacent east of this Express Homes development is the sprawling gated community of Ventura Village, while the Gulf View Estates spreads off Rapalo’s southern boundary.

Rapalo was launched in the spring of 2016, and a grand opening for its first home model was held in June that year. This community immediately piqued the interest of those on the market for Venice homes for sale, with its attractive price points starting from the low $200s matching the price quotes of older comparable houses in its neighborhood.

Resort-like Features


Also gated, this community provides several amenities including a community clubhouse and resort-style pool with adjoining pavilions. Scintillating lake views in many of the home sites in the community and its low HOA fees have also contributed in molding Rapalo homes for sale amongst D.R. Horton’s bestsellers in Venice. In 2017, 35 Rapalo residences were recorded as sold in the MLS of Venice homes for sale.

Express Homes offers four model choices at Rapalo, the floor plans of which measure from 1,542 to 1,828 square feet. All are of one-story designs and feature three bedrooms and two baths plus a two-car garage. Besides style and affordability, craftsmanship and quality service drawn from D.R. Horton’s over 35 years industry experience also count amongst the market strength of Rapalo homes for sale.

Its location on the strategic road corridor of S.R. 776, moreover is a huge plus for Rapalo. A short trip northwards this road stretch links to the Tamiami Trail and Jacaranda Boulevard, opening access to many of the points of interest in Venice and south Sarasota County.

Abundant Points of Interest

Via the Tamiami Trail, visits westward to the historic downtown of Venice Island and the beautiful beaches of Manasota Key are convenient for Rapalo residents. One must-visit in Venice Island is the 200-acre Lemon Bay Park lush with pine trees and a thriving bird habitat.

In addition to its picnic areas, this park also offers a two-mile path towards the bay where there is a boat launch. The nearby Manasota Beach is another island attraction with two boat launches and a boardwalk.

Shops and restaurants already abound too around the junction of Tamiami and Jacaranda, wherein the choices revolve around not only in the Venice Shopping Center and Wal-Mart but also include Beall’s Department Store and Target. Also close by are Frank Theatres and such dining venues as Rib City, Outback Steakhouse and Panda Express which could pretty much round out the delights of owning a home at Rapalo.
