In Florida, the increase in sales occurred across the state due to improving market fundamentals—improvement in job growth, increased household growth across various market segments, and stronger performance in higher price points. In addition, the high quality of these communities and the introduction of new community and product orientations contributed to enhanced sales paces, which is evident at Lake Nona, Lakewood

Ranch, and Nocatee. The introduction of a new active adult community at Lakewood Ranch was one of the critical success factors for the uptick in sales. Rob Adams, Vice President at Lake Nona, attributes their success to the community being a “thoughtfully designed, special place, and people recognize the value of living here. When you couple that with an improved Orlando housing market, a growing on-site employment base, a great school system, and a comprehensive onsite housing offering, we are in a great position for growth.”
