The Villages, located in Central Florida, led the nation in total sales, with 2,452 sales in 2020, up one percent from the total of 2,429 sales in 2019. The top three on the list, The Villages, Lakewood Ranch (Florida) and Summerlin (Nevada), held their positions from the 2019 RCLCO list. The 2019 RCLCO list marked the first time Summerlin cracked the top three on the RCLCO list.
Phillip Molnar provides news coverage of the John Burns report, focusing specifically on the performance of Otay Ranch in California, appearing at #17 on the list with 760 sales. The RCLCO report has Otay Ranch at #48 on the list with 458 sales, so there are differences between the two lists.
