LEANDER, Texas – (Realty News Report) – In the fastest growing city in the nation, Trendmaker Homes has started a new neighborhood in the Bryson master planned community owned by Houston-based Johnson Development.
“Austin is projected to become the 10th most populous city in America next year and its northern suburbs are showing an even greater rate of growth,” said Bryan Havel, president at Trendmaker Homes Austin. “Bryson is primely positioned on that path of expansion, while also differentiating itself with high-quality amenities and a unique combination of stimulating community connections with laid-back Hill Country charm. We are thrilled to be delivering new product to a top-six homebuilding market.”
The Fastest Growing City in America – Leander
The 530-acre Bryson community is located just off Highway 183-A, near Austin in Leander..
Leander, located about 30 miles northwest of Austin, has a population of 62,600, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The population report, covering a 12-month period ending July 1, 2019, said Leander registered a 12 percent annual population growth rate – the highest percentage gain of any city in the nation.
In a section of Bryson, Trendmaker will build a total of 60 single-family homes on 60’ x 90’ lots in a new neighborhood called Sweetwood. Trendmaker Homes Austin is part of TRI Pointe Group, a publicly traded building company.
Johnson Development acquired Bryson last year from Crescent Communities.. Johnson has 13 master planned communities in Houston, two in the Dallas area, one in Atlanta and one in Austin. Bryson is Johnson’s first project in Central Texas and sales have been strong recently.
Around the nation, new home sales have been strong during the pandemic while mortgage interest rates have been around 3 percent.
“Overall, our sales have been strong this year, even with the unusual year we’ve had,” said Larry Johnson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Development. “There has been a surge of people seeking communities close to nature and new homes better suited for their families. Great interest rates continue to be a driver for new home sales.”
Six Johnson communities ranked among the top 50 best selling new home communities in the nation, according to a midyear report by RCLCO. The six communities are; Sienna, Cross Creek Ranch, Harmony and Harvest Green in the Houston area; and Viridian and Trinity Falls in the Dallas area.
