For-Sale Housing Master-Planned Communities

Following the release of RCLCO’s report, The Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities of Mid-Year 2019, RCLCO has prepared an interactive map tool which visualizes the sales at Top-Selling MPCs across the country from 2013 to mid-year 2019. Through this visualization, it is clear to see that Florida, Texas, and California represent the largest share of home sales amongst the top-selling communities, with the share of sales in other states steadily growing over the past six years.

The ranking of RCLCO’s top-selling communities is based on total net new home sales as reported by each individual community. To be included in our ranking, MPCs must have a number of features. True MPCs are developed from a comprehensive plan by a master developer, and incorporate a variety of housing types, sizes, and prices, with shared common space, amenities, and a vital public realm. The best examples of MPCs are developed with a strong vision and comprehensive plan that guide development and unify the community through distinctive signage, wayfinding, entry features, landscaping, and architectural/design standards. Beyond the built environment, MPCs differentiate themselves from typical suburban subdivisions in that they provide a means for interaction among neighbors in the sense of the word “community.” They foster an environment within which generations can live better in terms of housing and the community environment, and many offer educational opportunities, neighborhood shopping and services, and even employment centers to complement the residential neighborhoods. Although rooted in a vision, the most resilient MPCs have flexible master plans that are environmentally sensitive, market responsive, and nurture the lifestyles of their residents.

Given the above criteria, we do not include the collective sales of multiple, separate communities that are unified only through marketing efforts rather than a preconceived community vision, nor do we include communities that are a collection of subdivisions that have few unifying elements other than consistent signage and name.
