by David Weekley Homes
David Weekley Homes is excited to announce that Summerwood was one of the nation’s top 20 master planned communities (MPCs) for new-home sales in 2010, according to a report from RCLCO, a national real estate advisory firm. With 155 new-home sales last year, Summerwood ranked 19th on the national list and ranked sixth among Houston region developments for new-home sales in 2010.
Located at the Sam Houston Tollway Northeast and W. Lake Houston Parkway, Summerwood, offers David Weekley Homes from the $130s with square footages starting in the 1600s. This 1,500-acre, master-planned community also offers a community center with pool and tennis courts, picturesque lake and walking trails, a park and playground, fine shopping and dining nearby, and recognized Humble ISD schools.
“Offering a diverse range of new-home products and fresh model homes has been key to the success of Summerwood,” said Kayla Webb, marketing director for Newland Communities, developer of Summerwood. “Location and a wooded environment have also been strong draws for homebuyers, along with onsite schools in the Humble Independent School District.”
Other Newland Communities in Houston on the RCLCO list also in the top 20 included Cinco Ranch in Katy, which ranked number one in Houston and third nationally and Telfair, located in Sugar Land, taking third in Houston and sixth nationally.
