Babcock Ranch home sales up 40 percent in Q1

BABCOCK RANCH, Fla. (April 17, 2020) – Kitson & Partners, developers of Babcock Ranch, reported 107 first-quarter new home sales, marking a 40 percent year-over-year increase for America’s first solar-powered town.

Babcock Ranch home sales totaled 31 in March alone, propelling the town to surpass the 600- homes-sold milestone.

The first quarter also marked the announcement that Publix will anchor Crescent B Commons, an 82,540-square-foot shopping center scheduled to open in 2021 at a new entrance to Babcock Ranch being constructed about one mile south of the existing town entrance on Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31.

“The vision behind Babcock Ranch appeals to homebuyers seeking a return to a true hometown lifestyle, where everything they need to stay active, healthy and connected is within reach,” said Syd Kitson. “During these days of social distancing, our residents are able to bike and hike our miles of trails, fish along our lakeshores, enjoy touchless golfing at Babcock National, and order convenient takeout from Slater’s market using curbside pick-up.”

The town’s emphasis on technology – featuring gigabit internet in every home and community-wide access to free WiFi – is especially helpful today. “Many homeowners have recently shared that now more than ever, they appreciate our one-gig fiber optic network that makes it easy and reliable to work from home and to participate in distance learning,” Kitson said.

Babcock Ranch began marketing new homes in 2017, with thee first residents moving into the town in January 2018. Today, Babcock Ranch offers homes from nine homebuilders in seven neighborhoods, including Babcock National, a new gated golf and lifestyle community.

Babcock Ranch was created by Kitson & Partners with respect for the natural environment and the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand-in-hand. Half of the town’s 18,000-acre footprint is set aside as greenways, parks and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.

Babcock Ranch’s homebuilders offer more than 50 home designs for nearly every lifestyle, from condominiums to villas to single-family estates ranging from 1,107 to more than 4,000 square feet. Homes appeal to young millennials, families, empty nesters and retirees alike, with prices ranging from the low $200s to over $1.5 million. Built to Florida Green Building Coalition standards, homes emphasize energy and water conservation as well as a healthy indoor environment.

Within Babcock Ranch’s welcoming neighborhoods, more than two dozen model and quick-delivery homes are now open or under construction by Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Divco Custom Homes, Florida Lifestyle Homes, Fox Premier Builders, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, Stock Classic Homes, and WCI.
