If you are considering a relocation to Florida, there is a good chance that you may see some Minto houses in several of the more popular neighborhoods ... both those that are age restricted for senior citizens as well as those that are open to everyone. Therefore, I thought it would be helpful to my readers to learn more about this well-respected home builder.

Mento Homes in Florida
Harbour Isle on Anna Maria Sound
This is your opportunity to live along the beach on a private island in Anna Maria Sound (pictured above). New homes range from about $380,000 to $500,000. Although this is not a golf community, there are a number of golf courses nearby. Within the community you will find a private clubhouse, pool, cabanas, and a marina. The homes are energy efficient and your homeowner's dues include maintenance, for a carefree lifestyle.
Sun City Center in the Tampa / Sarasota area
This over-55 community contains paired villas as well as single family homes. Prices for Minto homes in the community range from about $170,000 to $500,000. There are other builders who also build residences in Sun City Center. The community has its own hospital and several nursing homes. There are about 20 golf courses, two indoor pools, an outdoor pool and many other amenities. Minto offers a stay and play program that may interest you, too. For just $99, you can stay in a Minto home in Sun City Center for two nights, while enjoying some of the amenities on the property. This is a great way to decide if this neighborhood is right for you.
Twin Eagles near Naples
Minto has recently completed two new model homes in this luxury development that contains two highly rated golf courses and a lavish clubhouse.

This is another adult community for those who prefer to live in an age restricted neighborhood. Home prices are very affordable, ranging from the $200,000's to the $300,000's. The community offers a wide variety of amenities and is near a number of restaurants and retailers.
Better Business Bureau Report on Minto Homes
In doing research online, I did not find any complaints or angry articles written about Minto Homes. I thought it was also worthwhile, however, to check out their Better Business Bureau report, just to be on the safe side.
The Better Business Bureau gives Minto Homes an A-. The BBB has received four complaints about the company during the past three years. Only one of the complaints occurred in the past 12 months. Of the complaints that were file, one complaint was over advertising or sales; the other three complaints dealt with problems with the product or service that was offered. All of the complaint files have been handled and closed by the BBB.
The BBB report goes on to say they they know of no government actions against the company and they have nothing negative to report regarding the company's adertising
