What is a Master-Planned Community? How do you know if you live in one or even want to live in one? Master-Planned Communities are not a new concept but many real estate markets around the Country don't include these types of communities in their overall city planning either because they don't fit the vision of the area or there isn't enough open and available land to develop.
Generally speaking, Master-Planned Communities are spread out over a very large land area and are known for their abundance of amenities such as lakes, golf courses, expansive parks, large community recreational centers, community pools, and bike and jogging paths. Developers of Master-Planned Communities will also include the plans to integrate office parks, commercial centers, and business malls around each community.
Traditional subdivisions are usually much smaller in total land area, may have a few smaller parks but do not have the vast amount of amenities that can be found in a Master-Planned Community. Subdivisions will usually be surrounded with general shopping and strip-mall centers, but these local businesses are not part of the overall original plan for the area. Builders of subdivisions will typically develop a subdivision with the assumption and hope that retail and commercial development will follow suit.
