Every year, John Burns Real Estate Consulting, LLC produces the most accurate master plan community sales ranking* in the country. Feedback from numerous industry contacts and our boots-on-the-ground consultants supports the diligent research that goes into producing our prestigious, annual ranking.
Communities of 2021
The John Burns Real Estate Consulting staff congratulates the management teams behind the top 50 master-planned communities, which sold at least 460 new homes per community during 2021. This threshold is the highest in our 11-year survey history, well above the 437 sales required to make our 2020 ranking!
Over 39,000 home buyers purchased new homes in these master plans in 2021, reflecting a 9% increase from 2020 and exceeding the 31,000 sales captured by the top 50 master plans in 2019.
Six master plans exceeded 1,000 new home sales in 2021, up from five in 2020, including two Florida master plans, two in Las Vegas, and one each in Charleston and in California’s Inland Empire.
