Meyers Research on Tuesday launched its Master Plan Community Report, the latest product available on its data-driven app.

The report provides real-time data featuring more than one thousand master planned communities with nearly 4,400 new home projects across the country. Statistical reports for the news media, with national and regional data, will be available regularly during 2020 featuring unique attributes of the Report.

The company’s newest report tracks contract sales, new home pricing, amenity and land details of master plan communities across the country. The interactive app allows the user to access information for any master plan community within minutes. The report contains active, sold out and upcoming master plan communities. Clients can filter by state, metro, city or down to the ZIP code level to obtain relevant details for any new home community. New and updated information is loaded to the system on a daily basis, allowing users to confidently search for the best-selling projects or top builders, or review community amenities.

Specific data points that are in the Report include:

  • More than 1,080 Master Plan Communities
    • 4,395 projects within those Master Plans
    • 843 Master Plans that are actively selling homes
  • Total number of properties available for sale: 1.7 million
  • Total dollar value of the available properties: $8.5 trillion

The current research available through the Master Plan Community Report indicates the number one, most sought-after amenity is no longer golf courses. Now, the trend is towards buyers who are demanding other amenities to suit their lifestyle such as parks, trails and playgrounds.

“We have been gathering master plan data for many years because of the unique appeal that these communities have for buyers,” said Tim Sullivan, senior managing principal at Meyers Research. “Making our research available to our clients, in real time, differentiates us from our competitors. We want to give clients insight into the most important data so they can quickly and easily identify product types, land availability and community attributes that they are looking for.”

Builders, developers, and investors can save, email or print reports or users can earmark favorites for quick access. Because the app is connected directly to the proprietary Zonda, Metrostudy database, the user can refresh a search to see updated results.

“We understood that our clients needed real-time data about the communities that they were tracking,” said Lorry Lynn, EVP of Product. “Consolidating all of the pertinent information in one place provides confidence for builders, developers or investors that need to track and target the best projects to grow their portfolio.”
