Elyson Master-Planned Community, One of Nation's Top-Selling Community

21 July . 2022

What’s new at Elyson, one of the nation’s top-selling MPCs

From shopping to schools, exciting new things are coming to Elyson, one of the nation’s top-selling master-planned communities in a new report.

With sales of 247 new homes for the first 6 months of 2022, Elyson ranks among the Top 50 MPCs in the U.S., and among the Top 10 in Texas, according to a report from RCLCO, a national real estate consulting company.

Elyson is also one of the nation’s top communities for relocation sales, with 35 percent of homebuyers coming from outside the Houston area for the first half of 2022. That’s right in line with Houston’s status as the top U.S. moving destination in a report from truck rental company Penske. Houston also ranks No. 1 globally for local purchasing power in a new report from online publisher Visual Capitalist, and Houston’s home prices relative to other major cities are a major factor in the ranking.

Elyson surpassed 2,000 total home sales by mid 2022, and this growth is paving the way for some exciting new developments, including a new Harmony School of Excellence campus, a Target-anchored shopping center, a major new community center amenity, and more.
