2 Land Tejas Communities Among Nation’s Top-Selling


Posted on Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Following a year of skyrocketing home sales, Land Tejas sees two communities ranked among the nation’s top-selling.

Balmoral is the No. 2 top-selling community in Texas, according to two reports released by well known housing research firms. John Burns Real Estate Consulting places the Humble community tied at No. 11 on its list of the nation’s 50-best selling communities. Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) has Balmoral at No. 12 on its national list.

Last year, homebuilders sold 841 new homes in Balmoral — an 80 percent increase from 2019. Balmoral answers the most pressing needs of home buyers — location, access to good schools and quality homes — while offering something most communities don’t have — a tropical paradise. Balmoral is home to the state’s first Crystal Lagoons® amenity — a two-acre lagoon of turquoise waters surrounded by white-sand beaches and palm trees. This oasis is part of the award-winning Amenity Village, which offers residents an infinity-edge pool overlooking the lagoon, a fitness room, playground, event space and more. Since the lagoon opened in late 2018, sales have soared in the community, where homes are priced from the $200,000s.

Also ranked among the nation’s top-selling is Sierra Vista/Sterling Lakes, a growing Land Tejas community along the Highway 280 corridor. John Burns ranks the community at No. 43 on its report, while RCLCO has Sierra Vista at No. 45, with 474 new-home sales — a 37 percent year-over-year increase. Like its sister community, Sierra Vista also will have a crystal clear lagoon. The 4-acre lagoon is underway now and will be the signature feature of an Amenity Village complete with a beach-front clubhouse, splash pad, kids cove, launch for paddleboards and kayaks, white-sand beaches and a celebration lawn. Sierra Vista offers a variety of floor plans priced from the $200,000s from 10 homebuilders.

Named Houston’s largest residential developer, Land Tejas has 12 current communities, including Lago Mar, a Texas City community home to the nation’s largest Crystal Lagoons® amenity by perimeter. Sales will begin this year in the developer’s newest communities — Marvida in Cypress and Sunterra in Katy.
