WILMINGTON, NC – ideal-LIVING magazine is pleased to announce its fifth annual “Best of the Best” issue which features the Top 100 Planned Communities. The magazine will be in homes by July 16th. The honorees will also be revealed on www.ideal-LIVING.com/bestofthebest at the same time.
Surveys were collected at the 2020 Ideal Living Real Estate Shows which showed the top amenities in which potential homebuyers were interested. The Top 100 amenity communities were chosen based on the top amenities requested, including walking trails, wellness facilities, proximity to healthcare, social clubs, swimming, a sense of community, cycling, racquet sports, gated, lake communities, and coastal communities.
A special editorial committee assembled by the publication reviewed the qualifications of each nominee and selected the winners in 12 categories.
Among the categories honoring residential communities are the “Top 100 Planned Communities,” “Best Lake Communities,” “Best Mountain Communities,” “Best Coastal Communities,” “Best Golf Communities,” “Best Tennis and Pickleball,” and those with the “Best Wellness & Fitness Facilities.”
“The ‘Best of the Best‘ feature honors those areas and communities which deserve special recognition for their outstanding qualities, facilities, and programs,” said ideal-LIVING’s Editor and Associate Publisher, Kelly Godbey. “During the challenging times, we hope that this special feature in our Summer 2020 edition offers our readers a chance to find a better quality of life in a safer environment. Lifestyle is now more important than ever before and with many people able to work from home gives the ability to relocate sooner than they thought possible.”
