The Villages, a retiree-focused community northwest of Orlando, in 2020 once again topped RCLCO’s listing of the 50 top-selling U.S. master-planned communities. Florida’s Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota claimed the number-two spot overall and is the top-selling multigenerational community in the country. Las Vegas’s Summerlin ranked third, followed closely by Venice, Florida’s Wellen Park.
Total new home sales among the communities were 20 percent higher in 2020 than the previous year, RCLCO reported. The survey data of the top master-planned communities dates back to 1994.
