We recently announced the winners of our Top Communities of 2022. More than 50 master-planned lifestyle communities received “top community” honors—in several categories based on state/region.
Here, we’ll spotlight the top Florida communities of 2022.
Before we get into it, though, how did we determine which communities in Florida made our “best of” list?
There is perhaps no stronger market for the master-planned lifestyle community than in the Sunshine State. From the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast to the Treasure Coast, Miami Beach, and beyond, nearly 80 Florida communities have found a home—and great success—on PCR.
With so many appealing and desirable communities in Florida, we narrowed them down to recognize the most popular based on the user and consumer engagement seen on our website through the past year. In the end, there were seven lifestyle communities in Florida that rose to the top—garnering the most page visits and information requests from potential homebuyers.
One of the country’s best-selling communities, it’s no surprise that Ave Maria does great on PCR for Florida real estate lead generation. The community encompasses multiple residential neighborhoods in the Naples area, including PulteGroup’s popular Del Webb Naples for 55+ active adults.
