Minto announces Sun City Center nearing close out - Only 34 new homes available for sale

Sun City Center, FL — Minto Communities announces that Sun City Center — one of America’s most enduring and popular communities for those 55 and better — is nearing sell out with only 34 new Minto homes remaining for sale.  To offer more convenience to prospective homebuyers, the Minto sales office has relocated to the Banyan model in the Sun City Center model center.

Sun City Center is located in the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area close to the region’s many cultural and entertainment attractions and just 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and world-famous beaches of Treasure Island, St. Petersburg, Bradenton and Sarasota.

Named by Where to Retire magazine as a member of the Hall of Fame of Best Master-Planned Communities, Sun City Center is known as one of the country’s most desirable active-adult communities. Sun City Center offers an unparalleled range of community amenities, including four golf courses, miles of walking and biking trails, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness and wellness centers, tennis and pickleball courts and even a dog park.  Luxurious clubs and spas, fine dining and more than 200 social and activity clubs complete the panorama of social and lifestyle choices. Another unique aspect of life at Sun City Center is that residents can drive their golf carts on the streets.

Two new featured homes are available for sale and, for a limited time, Minto is offering purchase incentives to be applied toward closing costs or options on both.  The Palm villa, available for move-in October 2017, is priced at $258,080 and offers a $10,000 incentive. The Capistrano single-family home, available for move-in November 2017, is priced at $312,190 with a $10,000 incentive.

The Palm villa includes 2,163 square feet with 1,503 square feet under air. It has two bedrooms, two baths, den, expansive great room, dining area, hobby room, covered lanai and two-car garage. The Capistrano single family home includes 2,432 square feet with 1,683 square feet under air. It has three bedrooms, two baths, great room, covered lanai and two-car garage.

Distinctive Minto design features include bright, open living areas, designer kitchens, luxurious master suites and master baths, spacious closets, and many included premium features such as wood cabinets, granite countertops in kitchens and baths, tile floors, full GE appliance package and more.

“Minto is very proud to be a part of the rich 50-year history of the Sun City Center master planned community,” notes Minto Vice President Steve Svopa. “The demand for the comprehensive and dynamic lifestyle choices and quality homes offered at Sun City Center has been made abundantly clear by the quickly approaching close out of this great community. After only seven years of building homes in Sun City Center, Minto has sold all but the final 34 new homes to prospective buyers.”

Minto developed Sun City Center using its own funding sources, electing not to utilize Community Development District (CDD) funds.  According to Minto Vice President Steve Svopa, “When a developer uses CDDs, the cost of infrastructure improvements is passed on to the residents.  This fee shows up on the tax bill with average annual assessments ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 per year up to a maximum of 30 years. Minto didn’t want to burden our residents with this.”

The new location for the Sun City Center sales office is the Banyan model at 613 Chipper Drive in the Minto model center. Models are open daily for tours. Sales center hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For information, call 888-253-1567 or visit
