Winter Update: Is 2016 the year you plan on buying or renting your retirement home. If so, please have confidence in using our lists. We keep them as accurate and up-to-the-minute as possible--for you!
Spring is right around the corner when the real estate market starts heating up so time to get ready. We are seeing new communities coming out now. Some are showing very slight upwards price movement.
There was a small interest rate increase but is so slight it will not affect the real estate market much. Further increases could. Seniors usually need to sell their existing homes to have the cash to buy their retirement home.
More competition with increased inventory will help to keep prices from increasing. We look forward to adding new communities in 2016.
Fortunately, there are many excellent large 55+ communities being built for the new year. Watch for them here on this site.
When previewing model homes, discuss with the sales rep what deals may be available. Move-in ready homes are prime targets since they include upgrades.
Be sure to check individual community websites for the latest prices. We do our best to keep up with rapidly changing prices but cannot be responsible for recent changes.
Note: If the community is popular, it can sell quickly from the Interest List even before its public Grand Opening. Sign up on the community websites with your email so you are kept informed. Lower-priced offerings go first. Contact communities early and get on the Interest List. See our blog article about Top 20 Communities in Florida.
Rentals: Check with your local Realtor whether it is a good time to buy or rent since rents in many markets are increasing due to shortage. Source: NAR
