What is luxury home builder Pat Neal up to?He attracted a lot of press when he started selling Key West-style cottages in a gated community-Forrest Creek for just $122,900.  The homes drew accolades from those worried about a shortage of affordable housing, but after just three weeks prices have increased 10%.  Since the launch on Feb. 28, the builder has twice raised prices, adding $13,000 to the cost of the homes. In a real estate market where prices are falling, it's hard to believe.The prices are likely to continue rising. Neal said he wants to increase the price to around $150,000 before offering the homes in other communities.  "We are trying to see if we can sell the homes close to a normal price so we can have some return," Neal said.

I have to say this house is one of the best homes I have seen. The layout is just wonderful and I love the option of the bonus room with a bedroom and bathroom upstairs. This home consists of 4 bedrooms (5 if you add the bedroom upstairs) and 3 bathrooms (4 if you add the bathroom upstairs) and a 3 car garage. The home is 2,964 sq ft and consists of tons of personality. The Arlington 2 is a part of the New Castle Collection and is sure to be a favorite.

Parrish will be seeing a few more new stores opening in the next month or so."A pizzeria/Italian restaurant and a Chinese restaurant are already confirmed as new tenants of the Shops at Silverleaf, where Publix opened a new store on July 26. The plaza is on U.S. 301, near Chin Road.""A nail salon, a dry cleaner and a hairdresser have also signed leases for space alongside the grocery giant, according to North American Properties, which owns the plaza."I think Parrish needs more of a variety of restaurants and shops instead of more nail salons and Chinese restaurants.  I think they need to start building some more nice restaurants and different variety of stores for the residents of Parrish.  Maybe they are in the works for things to come soon.  Who knows.  There isn't much in Parrish, s...

The new Publix grocery store in Parrish on Hwy 301 is now open."Parrish did not have a large grocery store until the opening of Albertsons, close to Ellenton, in October 2001. But the large number of new homes built or being planned has helped put the once-sleepy community on retailers' radar.""About 42,000 people live in North Manatee, and another 20,000 homes have been proposed or are under construction in the area. A Sweetbay is also planned as part of a 256,000-square-foot retail project at the corner of Erie Road and U.S. 301."It's good to see another grocery store opening in the area.  Parrish needs it.  With all the new construction going on and all the people moving to the area, this will definitely help.  Along with the new construction and new grocery stores being built will a...

Forest Creek is located on US Hwy 301 south of the town of Parrish. This new community was developed by Neal Communities. As with all his communities, nature was left in tact. The mature trees were not just plowed down to make room for another development, Pat takes the time to build the community around the existing nature. For this, his developments are my favorites.The community consists of three collections they are as follows:Creekside Collection - This collection consists of maintanance free living. There are six different floor plans to choose from.Oak Hill Collection - This collection consists of single family homes, there are eight floor plans to choose from.Townhome Collection - This collection consists of the townhouses, there are three floor plans to choose from.Amenities i...

What a great place to live, close to Bradenton, Palmetto, Sarasota, St Petersburg and Tampa. Right next door to Kingsfield in Parrish FL and across the street from River Wilderness, a beautiful gated community, making this a convenient place to live.A new shopping center is going up at the end of Old Tampa Road in Parrish, this will make running to the grocery store very easy.  It use to be that you had to drive for miles to get to anything, not the case anymore.  The development has arrived and shows no signs of slowing down.So if you are looking for the move up home, something a little bigger than what you currently have, take a look at Kingsfield Lakes in Parrish Florida.  It just might be exactly what you are looking for.
