HOT Houston Communities Rankings – Cinco 1st, Woodlands 2nd and Riverstone 3rd…

Many buyers who are trying to find house knows for sure Houston housing market is HOT especially few master planned communities are super hot with price increased by many builders even every week. In some communities, there is a big waiting list to get lots in upcoming sections. Demand is so high, builders just don’t care about the issues reported by the clients and even willing to cancel the contract if customer is not willing to proceed during the construction process and sell the house to new customer for higher price. It is not really customer service but they don’t care. I don’t want to specifically mention those builders but it’s happening and buyers should be beware of those builders. Anyway, lets get to the HOT topic about this post.

Like past few years, Houston Business Journal recently ranked “Most Active Residential Communities” in the Houston Area for 2013. It seems like Cinco Ranch and The Woodlands battle for the No. 1 community like past few years. The list is ranked by annual starts from April 2012 through March 2013, based on data from MetroStudy, and only three starts separate the top two communities.

Two other communities, Riverstone and Sienna Plantation, both moved up three spots to land in the top five. Montgomery County’s Woodforest had the biggest increase, moving up nine spots from No. 16 to No. 7, while Summerwood in northeast Harris County fell seven places from No. 12 to No. 19. Five communities, Fall Creek, Canyon Gate West, Auburn Lakes, Cypress Creek Lakes and Long Meadow Farms, joined the list this year with annual starts between 202 and 163.

Here is the list,
