Lennar Joins Meritage and Richmond at La Estancia in Tucson

TUCSON, Arizona – SBH La Estancia, an affiliate of Sunbelt Holdings, the developer of La Estancia has sold 350 lots in 2017 with Meritage, Richmond and now Lennar Homes there. La Estancia has sold more lots than any master planned community in metro Tucson, making it the best performing community for lot sales this year.

Most recently, Lennar closed on 112-lots for $6.16 million, or $55,000 per finished lot and $1,100 per front foot.

Will White with Land Advisors Organization in Tucson handled the transactions with associate, John Carroll.

“La Estancia has been successful from the day it opened. It hits all the marks for homebuilders from location, proximity to major employment and Vail School district. In addition, the community has seen strong sales and price appreciation over the past 18 months. Success builds on success. With all of the new acquisitions in the project this year and all the new construction, we expect La Estancia to have plenty of room to run in 2018 and 2019.”

Senior Vice President at Sunbelt Holdings, Bob Bambauer who oversees the La Estancia project told us that due to the increased demand for the 50-wides, they intend to replat the 65-foot wides to 45-foot wide lots.

“With the recent lots sales and the replatting of the larger lots, we are now focused on planning the southern half of the site,” said Bambauer. “We will have a variety of lot sizes ready for development throughout 2018 and beyond.”

La Estancia, a 556-acre master planned community, offers master-planned living in this prime southeast submarket. Centrally located just off of I-10 and Wilmot Road and nearby some of Tucson’s most prominent employment centers including Raytheon Missile Systems, Davis Monthan Air Force Base, U of A Tech Park and the Tucson International Airport.
