Houston dominates national list of top-selling master-planned communities

by Lindsey Wells

The Houston area is home to 10 of the 50 top-selling master-planned communities  (MPCs) in the nation, according to a year-end report by RCLCO Real Estate Consulting.
Since 1994, RCLCO has conducted an annual national survey identifying the 50 top-selling MPCs in the country. The ranking is based on total new-home sales as reported by each community. Overall, sales in the 50 top-selling MPCs grew by a modest 5% from 2020, with a 14% decrease in sales during the second half of the year compared to the first, the report noted.

“The results of this year’s top-selling MPC report confirm that demand for new single-family homes within MPCs remains high, with favorable demographic tailwinds suggesting this strong demand will continue in 2022,” said Gregg Logan, managing director of RCLCO. “However, supply chain disruptions and the lingering impacts of COVID-19 have prevented many MPCs from fully capitalizing on the growth in demand seen over the past year. As these challenges are resolved in the coming months, we are optimistic for the success of master-planned communities in 2022.”
Here is a recap of the list’s top-selling Houston-area communities in 2021:

Bridgeland (No. 15) — 713 sales, an 18% year-over-year decrease
Balmoral (No. 17) — 704 sales, a 16% year-over-year decrease
