Less than a year after celebrating its grand opening, Lago Mar has been ranked among the nation’s 50 top-selling master-planned communities.

The Land Tejas development scored the No. 36 spot on the annual mid-year report published by real estate research and consulting firm Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO).

Rankings are based on home sales from January through June 2018. During that period Lago Mar recorded 207 sales.

“Sales in Lago Mar have always been strong,” said Tim Johnson, Director of Community Sales and Marketing for Land Tejas. “We are the whole package with a range of home designs, a great location and outstanding amenities. Still, being ranked among the nation’s top-selling master-planned communities so soon after opening is both exciting and unprecedented.”

Builders Westin Homes and Gehan Homes began pre-sales in the community in September 2016 followed by D. R. Horton, Long Lake Ltd., Anglia Homes, Censeo Homes and CastleRock Communities. This year, Lago Mar added Saratoga Homes to the builder roster. The community’s grand opening was last August. Homes are priced from the $210,000s.

Residents also enjoy an amenity package that includes a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse with a workout room, catering kitchen, business center, resort-style pool and a playground as well as an exclusive technology package with high-speed Internet and smart home features.

“We are just getting started,” Johnson said. “When complete, Lago Mar will be home to approximately 7,000 families so we expect to be on the top 50 list for years to come.”

Lago Mar is a 2,033-acre development along Interstate 45 in Texas City. The community will feature approximately 4,400 homes and 14,000 residents upon completion. Home prices are in the $210,000s. For more information, visit www.lagomarintexascity.com
