How are master-planned communities financing and constructing public infrastructure? RCLCO has teamed up with Launch Development Finance Advisors to investigate and found that a significant majority of home sales within the 50 top-selling master-planned communities occurred within communities using special purpose taxing districts. In addition, Launch and RCLCO have calculated the estimated net proceeds for a sample home in the Top-50 MPCs using average prices.

Key Takeaways:

  • Most top-selling master-planned communities (MPCs) in the country utilize some form of special financing district in their development. In fact, 87% of homes sales in RCLCO’s Top-50 MPCs of Mid-2023 occurred within a special taxing district
  • A sampling of homes among the Top-50 MPCs in the country indicated an average annual district tax payment of $3,791 among MPCs that had a District in place. This translates to an annual payment worth 0.7% of average home values, or just over $316 per month on average
