CHICAGO (April 8, 2019) –– knows where retirees are moving. As the number one resource for active adults searching for age-restricted and active lifestyle communities, the company and its team of real estate agents are licensed experts who help homebuyers across the country. For the fourth consecutive year, the site is proud to announce today its 50 best-selling active adult communities of 2019. Earning the top spot for the first time is On Top of the World of Ocala, Fla.

On Top of the World, developed by a builder of the same name, began construction in 1981 and offers homes in a variety of models and square-foot options ranging from less than $100,000 to $400,000. Upon completion, it will contain 10,000 single-family homes, which will make it the third-largest 55+ community in the U.S. Homeowners can take advantage of the community’s three golf courses, two restaurants, multiple clubhouses, fitness centers, swimming pools, and tennis and pickleball courts, as well as classes and groups that appeal to every interest, hobby, and passion.

“Choosing a retirement destination is no easy feat. Active adults want an ideal neighborhood, affordable housing, attractive amenities, and social opportunities, and finding that perfect combination is very subjective,” said Todd Warshauer, vice president of sales for “On Top of the World offers all of that and more to its residents, which is why it remains a popular choice. With a Central Florida location, finely-built homes available for reasonable prices, and nearly 200 organized clubs, it’s easy to see why so many love to call this place home.” 

To compile the list, the company used data based on the number of sales conducted through from March 1, 2018 to February 28, 2019. It is based solely on sales through the website and does not represent overall sales for any given community. The complete list and methodology can be viewed here.

In addition to this year’s honor, On Top of the World was also ranked second in 2016, sixth in 2017, and fourth in 2018. To learn more about this community, visit
