Vistancia Named Among Top 50 Best-Selling Residential Developments in the Nation by John Burns Real Estate Consulting

PEORIA, Ariz. (February 7, 2013)- Vistancia, a 7,100-acre master planned community in northwest Peoria, has recently been named among the top 50 best-selling residential developments in the nation for 2012 by Irvine, Calif.-based John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
The survey, which included approximately 100 large-scale residential communities from across the nation, ranked communities by total net sales last year. John Burns Real Estate Consulting then ranked the 50 best sellers for its comprehensive list. The results also showed that national home sales overall were up 46 percent year-over-year.

“We are honored to be included in this prestigious list,” said Mark Hammons, vice president/general manager of Vistancia. “Vistancia is a vibrant, growing community, and we are genuinely pleased to see a steady influx of new interest in the community, adding to our existing population of dynamic residents.”

The award-winning Vistancia is one of the most successful master planned communities in the nation. It features eight actively selling new home neighborhoods by national and regional builders offering varied designs in three unique lifestyle communities: The Village at Vistancia, a multi-generational family community filled with amenities and activities for families of all ages; Blackstone at Vistancia, a private gated golf community featuring luxury homes and custom homesites nestled amidst pristine natural desert landscapes with generous open spaces providing spectacular mountain views from every homesite; and Trilogy at Vistancia, an active adult resort community.

Vistancia’s future development includes a 500-acre commercial core development that is envisioned to provide a diverse offering of employment, educational, medical, shopping, residential, entertainment, lifestyle and recreational facilities. Additionally, Vistancia will develop an additional 3,450 acres north of the community set in the natural Sonoran desert and scenic mountainous terrain. The future extension of the community will offer a diverse range of architectural styles and home sizes, community recreational centers, commercial space, a 900-acre mountain preserve, city parks and public schools.

Among Vistancia’s amenities are the Mountain Vista Club, a 15,000-square-foot recreational facility with an indoor basketball court, three swimming pools, tennis courts and event lawns. Vistancia’s benchmark amenity is The Discovery Trail, a 3.5-mile hiking trail linking Vistancia neighborhoods to amenities and two elementary schools. ┬áThe community also offers two golf courses – a private, Jim Engh-designed course at Blackstone Country Club, which also features the 30,000-square-foot Hacienda clubhouse, and a public course at Trilogy.

Currently, The Village at Vistancia offers homes ranging from 1,218 square feet to 5,019 square feet by Meritage Homes, Rosewood Homes and Taylor Morrison.
