Summerlin is the best-selling Master Planned community in the United States. Summerlin features mature landscaping, recreational facilities for Summerlin residents, parks & sports parks. Every homeowner will pay a master plan fee of approximately $34 per month. The money is used to pay for the upkeep of landscaping in central areas & recreational areas. This fee will be paid indefinitely. There is also an additional assessment known as an SID or LID. The money for all the master plan underground work was paid for with a bond and after the homes are occupied all the homeowners will repay the bond. For example: balance of SID $8,000 to be paid over 10-15 years at a yearly amount of $300. This SID can be transferred to the new home buyer if you sell your home.

For thirty years, Summerlin’s smart and steady development has made the area impressively awarded and recognized for its innovations and achievements.

It has achieved Silver Certification for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) from the U.S. Green Building Council by optimizing energy performance and enhancing water efficiency. What’s more, Summerlin ranks #4 in the country for Least Traffic Congestion and Quality Infrastructure.
Summerlin is able to integrate the latest in technology while preserving and protecting its natural beauty, and it’s thanks to this that some of the most cutting-edge designed business complexes are able to sit alongside the natural wonders of the Vegas Valley, earning recognition from National Geographic Adventure in 2007 when it was ranked #1 in Best Places to Live & Play. The community’s award-winning multi-use trail system connects the Summerlin villages and spans 150 miles. In 2008, it received the American Trails Developer Award.
