Two metro Phoenix master-planned communities are among the top-selling communities in the country, according to a midyear sales report from real estate firm RCLCO.

Eastmark in Mesa and Vistancia in Peoria made the cut in RCLCO's 2015 midyear update on the best-selling master-planned communities.

Eastmark, which is near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and Apple Inc.'s major data center operations in Mesa, had 286 sales through the first half of the year (up 148 percent), good for No. 8 on the list of 20 top-selling communities.

In the West Valley, Peoria's high-end Vistancia community boasted 271 sales during the same time frame (up 171 percent), according to RCLCO. That is good enough for Vistancia to be No. 11 on the top 20 list.

Overall, the top master-planned communities sold homes at a quicker pace through the first half of this year than they did during the same period in 2014, according to RCLCO.

The Villages in Florida was the top-selling community.
