Seven master-planned communities in metro Phoenix have been named among the top 50 best-selling residential developments in the nation in 2012.
The Valley projects were ranked based on a recent survey by Irvine, Calif.-based John Burns Real Estate Consulting, in which about 100 of the nation’s largest communities disclosed their total net sales last year.
The survey then ranked the top 50 best sellers and released it this week, which showed overall net sales last year were up a whopping 46 percent year-over-year. The 50 communities collectively posted 22,806 new home sales for the year. Two local communities by Tempe-based Fulton Homes were among only 11 total on the list that doubled sales from the year before.
Here are the Phoenix-area communities that made the list:
- No. 23: Ironwood Crossing in Queen Creek, a Fulton Homes development, saw 309 sales last year — a 166.4 percent-spike year-over-year
- No. 27: Power Ranch in Phoenix, a development by DMB Associates andSunbelt Holdings, both in Scottsdale, saw 302 sales last year — up 32.5 percent year-over-year
- No. 29: Vistancia in Phoenix, a development by Shea Homes and Sunbelt Holdings, saw 292 sales last year — a surge of almost 66 percent year-over-year
- No. 39: Hastings Farms in Queen Creek, a Newport Beach, Calif.-based William Lyon Homes development, saw 242 sales in its first year last year
- No. 41: Verrado in Buckeye, a DMB development, saw 233 sales last year — spiking by nearly 38 percent year-over-year
- No. 48: Estrella in Goodyear, a Charlotte, N.C.-based Newland Communities development, saw 222 sales last year — climbing by about 43 percent year-over-year
- No. 49: Freeman Farms in Gilbert, a Fulton Homes development, saw 215 sales last year — up by almost 142 percent year-over-year.
Four of those communities — Ironwood Crossing, Power Ranch, Hastings Farms and Freeman Farms — made the list for the first time. Verrado and Vistancia both move up in ranking from last year, while Estrella was the only one that dropped by two spots from 2011.

I am a successful Commercial Investment Real Estate Broker in Arizona now for 15 years and I worked with banks and their commercial REO properties for 3 years. I am also a commercial and Landspecialist in Phoenix and a Landspecialist in Arizona.
WHETHER YOU LEASE OR OWN
NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO EXPAND, UPGRADE OR INVEST.
In my opinion we are at or near the bottom of the cycle in Commercial Real Estate in Phoenix and now is the time for you to expand, upgrade or invest in Commercial Properties in Phoenix. The prices on deals I may get you will not be around forever.
IF YOU OR ANYBODY YOU KNOW IS IN TROUBLE WITH YOUR BUSINESS, AS MANY AMERICANS ARE IN THE MOMENT, AND ARE ABOUT TO LOSE YOUR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY, PLEASE CONTACT ME. IF YOUR BANK IS BEHAVING BADLY I MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU GET OUT OF SOME OR MAYBE A LOT OF FUTURE HEADACHES.
WAITING TO SELL YOUR LAND ? TIMES CHANGE / IT’S TIME
We barely could give land away the last few years, but times are changing. Even in those meager years, I sold more land across the state than most other brokers. Before the real estate crash I was a land specialist in Arizona with millions of dollars of transactions, but then I had to change and also sell other commercial investment properties, which was fun, but I am a Commercial Landspecialist in Arizonal, a Commercial Land Specialist in Phoenix and love to sell land, one acre to thousands of acres.
Since I was a Land Specialist in Arizona and a Land Speciaost in Phoenix many of my clients, Sellers and Buyers remember me and now they are calling me again, so this is the time to get back into land and none of my clients, including future clients, will miss out on getting their best deal.
Also, if you are up-side down on your land, like many Americans, and the lender is giving you a hard time, now is the time to put your land on the market. Lenders are making deals now with short sales. I have been working with banks for many years – I learned how to work with them.
If you have any questions about the 1 to 3 above, about Commercial Investment Properties in Phoenix or Commercial Investment Properties in Arizona, I will gladly sit down with you and share my expertise and my professional opinion in Commercial Properties in Phoenix or Commercial Properties in Arizona with you.Obviously I am also in this to make money, but it could be a win-win situation for all of us.
