Being named one of the top 50 best-selling master-planned communities in the nation never gets old. Each year we make the list means more new neighbors attracted by the easy, breezy Lago Mar lifestyle.
This month, housing research firm Robert Charles Lesser & Co (RCLCO) published their annual mid-year report ranking master-planned communities across the nation. We scored the number 45 spot with 216 sales. That’s a 41 percent increase over last year’s sales at this time.
Overall, sales in the top 50 master-planned communities rose by 16 percent. Only true master-planned communities that reflect a comprehensive master plan incorporating a variety of housing types, sizes, prices, shared common space and amenities are included on the list, according to RCLCO.
One of the biggest attractions for homebuyers is the new Lago Mar lagoon. The 12-acre lagoon is the largest in Texas with the longest waterfront perimeter in the United States. Lago Mar homeowners enjoy a resident-designated section with a clubhouse and pool while the public can purchase tickets to Summer Lagoonfest July 15 through Sept. 13 to enjoy the lagoon’s beach lifestyle.
The lagoon is the signature feature of a 100-acre mixed-use entertainment district being built at the entrance to Lago Mar. The district will offer residents easy access to retails, dining and entertainment along a planned boardwalk.
Residents also enjoy a clubhouse with a workout room, catering kitchen and business center as well as a playground and second resort-style pool. Then there’s an exclusive technology package that will have you zipping down the information highway.
Homes in Lago Mar are priced from the $200,000s to the $500,000s so there is a home to fit every budget. A selection of award-winning builders offers numerous home design options.
Much of what makes Lago Mar special comes down to one of the most prolific developers in Texas — Land Tejas. Three other Land Tejas communities also ranked among the top 50. Balmoral in Humble placed at No. 12 with 409 home sales. Sierra Vista/Sterling Lakes in Arcola placed at No. 29 with 261 home sales. Ranking at No. 37 was Harmony in Spring with 235 sales.
