The bottom of the market has hit, prices won't drop anymore.  Now is the time to buy before they start rising again.  We have seen a steady leveling out for several months. Things will start picking back up so if you are looking for that good deal, get it now.As for Parrish today....the old Parrish General Supply still stands and is still open for business. It is stocked with hardware, plumbing supplies, large & small animal feeds, ranch supplies and much much more! It's the only hardware/feed store around unless you drive to Ellenton or Palmetto. The Parrish General Supply is where you can also find out what the buzz is around town and what's new with development in town.There are 2 gas stations, one on each end of town. They still have the old fashioned gas pumps where the gas nozzle'...

While out for a drive today, I discovered one of the neatest subdivisions that I have ever been in.  River's Reach is a brand new subdivision being built by Neal Communities and is located on Rye Road between Golf Course Road and Upper Manatee River Road in Parrish.  It's about 12 miles from SR 64.  River's Ranch is a masterfully-planned community that is located alongside of the Manatee River which consists of 250 acres that contain over 58% of green space for lakes, river and nature preserves.  That's over 105 acres of green space that was left to preserve many of the older trees that have been there for hundreds of years as well as wildlife and natural lakes.  Planned amenities at River's Reach, include over one mile of nature trails with interpretive signs, picnic areas, gazebos, la...

Parrish real estate is the hot new spot to live. Tons of new construction is starting to pop up in this sleepy little town that use to be called in the middle of no where. Parrish real estate is rising in value at a very good pace, in fact vacant land that was purchased just 3 years ago can average doubling even tripling in value. Parrish real estate is a great investment at this time,  US 301 and Moccasin Wallow roads are the two main targets for this new growth as many new developments are slated to be constructed in these areas. Homes in the price ranges of the high 200's and up are popping up everywhere. Parrish real estate is where everyone is moving to, people seem to prefer the new construction in Parrish real estate. Schools in Parrish are being built and everyone wants their ch...
