Home Sales Surpass 3,000 as Babcock Ranch Kicks Off a Milestone Year
Babcock Ranch is experiencing another banner year in 2023, surpassing over 3,000 homes sold just as it introduces new neighborhoods, builders, amenities and a second retail center. Ranked the nation’s No. 5 best-selling master-planned community in 2022, Babcock Ranch is America’s first solar-powered town developed with the philosophy that respect for the natural environment, smart growth and sustainability elevate residents’ daily lifestyle.
“Today’s homebuyers are more mindful of how their home and community impacts the environment, their health and wellness,” said Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of developer Kitson & Partners. “They understand our unique vision behind Babcock Ranch and realize the decision to live in this special place enhances their lifestyle today but also affects their children, grandchildren and future generations.”
Home sales in Babcock Ranch began in 2017 and have repeatedly topped previous year’s sales records. The town’s authentic hometown experience, energy-efficient and water-conserving building practices and the convenience of on-site schools, shopping and outdoor recreation attract more new residents than any other Southwest Florida new-home community. Babcock Ranch appeals to a variety of buyers, including young millennials, families of all sizes, seasonal residents, empty nesters and retirees.
