Did you notice people lining up to buy new Scott Felder homes at Santa Rita Ranch recently? People actually camped overnight outside the Scott Felder model home to be one of the first to buy a new home in our master-planned community in 2021! And with amazing homes on lots up to half an acre and breathtaking views of the rolling Texas Hill Country outside their windows, who can blame them?
In fact, Santa Rita Ranch recently became the number-one top-selling master-planned community in the Greater Austin Area, and it’s among the top four master-planned communities in the state of Texas. Thanks in part to a massive influx of new residents locating from points across the country, the Austin area has been growing in leaps and bounds, and we’ve been growing with it! Santa Rita Ranch sold 72% more homes in 2020 than we did just the year before.
Of course, we’re proud of those numbers, and we’re proud that industry-leading organizations such as RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting have included Santa Rita Ranch among the 25 best selling master-planned communities in the nation, but the best part about selling so many new homes is welcoming so many friendly new faces to our community.
In 2020, we helped 641 families find the home of their dreams in Santa Rita Ranch, and we’re looking forward to welcoming lots more people to the community in 2021 as the Greater Austin Area continues to grow and prosper. We also believe that our Ranch community is only as vibrant and healthy as the greater community around us. For every home we’ve sold, we’ve donated $1,000 to an educational fund to support local schools. That’s $641,000 that we donated in 2020!
Santa Rita Ranch Developer Ed Horne says that 2020 has been the best year he’s seen in 44 years working in the housing industry, and he’s looking forward to 2021! The huge influx of new home buyers to the Austin area is due to a lot of factors, from lower taxes to great job opportunities to top-notch schools, fantastic weather, and unbeatable culture. The area’s dynamic housing market offers plenty of opportunities for interested buyers to find move-in-ready homes to fit their budget and lifestyle.
Why have so many people chosen the Santa Rita Ranch master-planned community in Liberty Hill near Georgetown, Austin, and Round Rock? Ed thinks it has something to do with the many incredible home builders who help to create the many different offerings we have at Santa Rita Ranch.
“We’ve been privileged to work with some of Austin’s most prestigious home builders, and each has played a significant role in the success of our community,” Ed said. “Because of their commitment to quality and the diversity of product offerings, we’ve seen strong sales in every product category.”
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Santa Rita Ranch is also home to some of the most impressive amenities around. From our Wellness Barn to The Hub clubhouse and pool, from the Stargazer Patio to our Hideaway Park, and from the Ranch House to Ed’s Lake and miles of hike and bike trails, residents find countless ways to Discover Natural Beauty, Learn from the Land, Blaze Your Own Trail, and always Have Fun Along the Way! That’s just part of living by the Ranch Code, which informs everything that we do here at Santa Rita Ranch.
We like to think that’s why we’re at the head of the class when it comes to top selling communities in the Greater Austin Area. We believe in getting inspired, enjoying family bonds, and getting to know our neighbors. We’ve built a community around those shared values, one where neighbors become friends and where community is about more than just the streets and buildings where we live.
We’re so happy to welcome each and every new family that made Santa Rita Ranch their home in 2020, and we’re looking forward to an even bigger and better 2021. This year, we’ll see new community developments such as the Kids ‘R’ Kids daycare, a new on-site middle school, an H-E-B store at the Bar W Marketplace, and The Grove Church, our first on-site place of worship. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of new faces and continuing to make Santa Rita Ranch one of the best places to live in Texas – or anyplace else!
