Three Carolina communities made the list of the 50 Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities of 2017.
That’s according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting who researches and compiles the list each year.
The #1 community on the list, The Villages in Florida, sold a whopping 2,231 new homes in 2017!
The Carolina communities that made the list did not sell nearly as many as that, but let’s take closer look at the ones that made the list and see how they fared.
Cane Bay Plantation (Charleston, SC) – #13 Overall, #1 in the Carolinas
With 584 new home sales last year, Cane Bay Plantation is a well established and growing community nestled in the heart of South Carolina’s Berkeley County – the fastest growing county in the state.
There are a number of builders to choose from in Cane Bay Plantation and a variety of neighborhoods as well.
Brunswick Forest (Wilmington, NC) – #33 Overall, #2 in the Carolinas
A longtime featured community on this site, the builders at Brunswick Forest recorded 395 new home sales in 2017.
Brunswick Forest has a wealth of amenities in place for residents to enjoy today, such as a top-rated golf course and some of the most diverse real estate offerings in eastern North Carolina.
Berewick (Charlotte, NC) – #38 Overall, #3 in the Carolinas
With 367 new homes sold in 2017, the focus at Berewick is on Family living.
Like most master-planned communities there are a variety of builders to choose from, but the main attractions are the community’s amenities, walking space, and green space. There’s even an elementary school within the community.
I always like remind people to keep in mind that “top-selling” does not always mean “best”.
Finding the best community for you is a very personal decision that you can only come to after plenty of research and time spent visiting a number of communities that seem like they may be a fit.
