Your next destination, Lakewood Ranch

Updated: Mar 25

Lakewood Ranch is a Master-Planned community and since being purchased in 1922 for ranch and cattle operations has become an oasis for adult communities and businesses alike.

Major changes are happening all over this area of Florida such as new infrastructure projects from Tampa to outlying communities and Lakewood Ranch is meeting the demand for ease of access to its residents and visitors (some projects). Since #champabay won the Super Bowl, the local professional Hockey team #champabayrays won the Stanley Cup, we are on a course that may see the Olympics in our near future.

No wonder so many people are flocking to the area for not just retirement (anymore) but also for building lives and being part of a growing community.


Lakewood Ranch has been recognized as the best-selling, master-planned multi-generational community in the country by John Burns and RCLCO (two independent real estate consulting firms) for the third year in a row.

Lakewood Ranch saw 2,149 new home sales in 2020, up from 1,648 in 2019 – a 30 percent increase year-over-year and the best sales year on record for The Ranch.

For home buyers, this is the market for you. The article continues to read..

"The Ranch continues to be successful at market segmentation, filling multiple market niches with homes available with price points from the $200s to more than $1 million. There are more than 20 unique villages from which to choose, with more than 20 different builders, including four new villages that opened in 2020: Taylor Morrison’s Esplanade at Azario, Lennar’s Lorraine Lakes, Neal Communities' Windward, and Pulte’s Sapphire Point."

Although sales at all price points have been strong, the luxury market continues to perform extremely well, Cole said. “The community was prepared to meet increased demand from the millennial buyer while still accommodating move-up families, empty-nesters, retirees, and seniors,” Cole said. “Our strength continues to come from the diversity of our neighborhoods and homes, an abundance of shopping, dining, and services, job base, and exceptional lifestyle offerings.”

Popular amongst residents – and prospective buyers – are miles of trails and paths, parks offering a disc golf course, watercraft launches, and dog parks for socially distanced, outdoor activity; and nationally recognized sports venues like the Premier Sports Campus and the Sarasota Polo Club. The Ranch is also home to A-rated schools, 10 institutions of higher learning, and the nationally recognized Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. The Ranch has been recognized by Ideal-LIVING magazine as a “best health and fitness” and “best wellness” community.

With new communities popping up every day now is the time to buy a home you can really live in. Building a life here in Lakewood Ranch is a no-brainer. From millennial homes to retirement homes Lakewood Ranch should be your next destination on the road to a fulfilled life in a community that has a future as bright as this one.
