As we age as a nation, master planned communities are becoming more and more popular. I came across an interesting post at MetroStudyReport.com called the Top 20 Master Planned Communities. In addition to being attractive to many boomers, the amenities these community offer are appealing to a wide range of buyers.
From the Report
Highlights from the Top 20 Master Planned Communities:• Outside of Texas, there were three communities from Florida, two in Nevada, two in California, with Utah, Virginia, North Carolina and Colorado each including one community on the list.• The Villages remains the top MPC in the country with 2,374 annual new home starts through 2Q11. This accounted for approximately 38% of all start production in the Central Florida market. This was the highest single market capture rate among the communities, followed by Daybreak in Salt Lake City, Utah with 28%, Woodbury with 19% of Orange County, California and Alamo Ranch with 19% of San Antonio, Texas.• 10 of the 20 MPCs started more homes during the past 12 months compared to the previous 12 months.• Four of the communities on the list are less than 15% away from build-out (Woodlands, Sienna Plantation, Portola Springs, & Cinco Ranch).• Four developers had two MPC’s on the list each. Newland Communities (Houston), The Irvine Company (Southern California), Focus Property Group (Las Vegas, and Johnson Development (Houston).(Note: Click on the chart to view a larger image)
What surprised me most, there are none in California. I wonder what you think and if anyone reading lives in one or has visited, I would be curious of your opinion of the list.
