Welcome Back! It was a very busy October at Toscana with four home sales and one already in November. We look forward to seeing all the Members back enjoying the wonderful events and activities planned for this season.

Through October, over 4,000 guests have visited the Sales Center. In addition, there have been 47 real estate sales so far in 2013 for over $68,000,000 in total sales volume. We continue to see a lot of interest in Toscana and the lifestyle it offers!

The Toscana Sales Team continues to be the overall volume leader in Toscana with 93% (41) of all the transactions in 2013 including 24 resales! We remain committed to showing prospective purchasers any of the properties that fit their criteria - resale or new. See below for the complete summary of the sales activity and other highlights:

  • 28 resale homes and estate homesites (24 sold and/or listed by Toscana).
  • 8 new Sunrise homesites for to-be-built homes.
  • 9 new completed or under construction Sunrise Signature Homes.
  • 14 Sunrise Homes under construction.

Our success is due to many things, however our greatest strength is you, the owners, who continue to introduce your friends to the enviable lifestyle we enjoy at Toscana.
