Darling Homes’ mission to build high-quality homes with superior craftsmanship in the best communities has been confirmed once again by the announcement that six of the Houston home builder’s neighborhoods are located in the top 20 best-selling master-planned communities nationwide.
In fact, Texas neighborhoods make up nearly half of the mid-year list compiled by Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO), with nine out of 20 top-ranking communities located in the Houston area.
Darling Homes currently builds in six of those nine communities including Riverstone in Sugar Land, Creekside Park in The Woodlands, Aliana in Richmond, Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear and Sienna Plantation in Missouri City.
Riverstone, where Darling Homes builds five different collections of homes, was ranked highest among the Houston master-planned communities, coming in at No. 4 in the national RCLCO rankings.
Like Riverstone, Aliana also increased its ranking by two spots from 2013, moving up to No. 12 on the list as more people flock to the Richmond community, where Darling Homes builds homes that range from approximately 3,700 to 4,500 square feet.
Meanwhile, Cross Creek Ranch (where Darling Homes recently debuted two new neighborhoods) and Sienna Plantation experienced steady growth during the first half of 2014.
According to RCLCO, contributing factors to home sales in Houston may be impacted by the construction of the Grand Parkway between I-10 and Highway 20.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the long-awaited parkway is opening up access to key job centers in the area such as the Energy Corridor in west Houston.
RCLCO annually compiles a list of the top 20 master-planned communities in the nation, with the most current ranking based on sales for the first half of 2014.
