March 17, 2011
FORT BEND COUNTY, TEXAS – RCLCO, an independent real estate advisory firm, has been releasing its top-selling Master-Planned Community (MPC) rankings since 1994. In their 2010 report, Sienna Plantation is once again among the top selling Master-Planned communities in the country. New home sales in Sienna rose 5% over the previous year, and Sienna has consistently been in the top 10 selling communities ranked by RCLCO for the past 7 years.
RCLCO retains the most in-depth knowledge bank of MPC data and trends in the industry. Each year, RCLCO invites over 400 communities across the nation to participate in its annual MPC survey which includes information on a variety of measures in addition to sales. Master-Planned Communities are large-scale developments featuring a range of housing prices and styles, an array of amenities, and multiple non-residential land uses (such as commercial, hotels, and educational facilities) offering residents an attractive and convenient environment in which to live, work, and play.
“We are thrilled that Sienna Plantation continues to rank among the top-selling Master-Planned Communities in the United States,” said Doug Goff, Chief Operating Officer of Johnson Development Corporation. “Our goal was to create a unique lifestyle in a community filled with amenities that appeal to home buyers. By ranking as a top-seller in the nation, we believe that we’re doing just that.”
As in past years according to the RCLCO survey, the Sunbelt region remained home to a majority of the top performing communities with Houston representing the largest concentration.
