Stapleton’s 2012 sales have made it the nation’s 10th best-selling, master-planned community for a second year in a row.
And it’s the only Colorado neighborhood in the top 10!
“The national housing market is clearly showing signs of recovery and nowhere is the improvement more evident than in the performance of the nation’s largest master-planned communities,” according to the list’s author, John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
The California-based group surveyed close to 100 communities to rank the top 50 across the United States.
“Together, these communities totaled 22,806 new home sales in 2012, which is a 46% increase over the 15,599 new home sales in these communities in 2011,” the consulting group states.
Stapleton’s 508 home sales were focused in its Central Park West and Bluff Lake neighborhoods last year, and homes are already under construction in the new Conservatory Green neighborhood.
The community’s next, great neighborhood will be new, but still true to the community’s urban design. Models and nearly 500 homes will begin to open this spring next to The Shops at Northfield Stapleton, Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
