2014 was a high water mark for Nocatee, named #3 master planned community in the U.S.
For the third year in a row, Nocatee is ranked as one of the most popular master planned communities in the nation. To make 2014's #3 ranking even sweeter for Parc Group and the myriad Nocatee builders, numbers #1 and #2 are actually over 55 communities, both in Orange County, California. The rankings come fom consulting firms RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
Offering three price points, all homes in Twenty Mile will have lake or preserve views.
The more moderate offering in Nocatee's Twenty-Mile community, Twenty Mile Village, will be delayed as more lots and homes are sold in the Pointe and The Island.
There are several reasons, not the least of which is that the builders are focusing on Siena, and the Greenleaf section, (Lakes, Preserve and Village). Twenty-Mile Village is the price point within Twenty Mile that directly competes with Siena and Greenleaf Lakes, so it makes sense for the builders to hold off.
The two higher end Twenty-Mile neighborhoods, The Pointe and The Island, are selling. ICI Homes has have sold space in both these higher end sections.

New home for the price of a late model resale? Worth a look.
In the 2014 - 2015 housing rebound, some homebuyers are discovering that you can buy a new construction home
at roughly the same price as a late model re-sale. This most likely will apply to spec or "move-in ready" new homes, but in rare cases, even to-be-built models.
This is especially true in communities that slowed their growth -- even stopped building -- in 2010 and 2011, and are now building more new models with a price tag to match their three to four-year-old counterparts in the same neighbothood.
