Communities have been quickly adjusting prices (usually up) to fit the market. However, sales have slowed in this the final quarter and price increases have abetted.
We have been putting price adjustments on, however, we have not had time to do them all. Please check with builder's websites for the most accurate prices.
This is not for all markets so consult with local Realtors of the area you are interested in and for advice.
Inventories of foreclosures continue to decline although they are still available.
Late Fall Update: Home sales have slowed since the fast buying of summer, especially on the East Coast. We have even seen some price reductions and definite leveling off of prices. Since interest rates remain low, this may be a good time to view communities or take a second look. We have also seen increased incentives to lure buyers back into the market (the market typically slows at the end of the year). More new retirement homes are being built and price increases are moderating which will keep the overall market more affordable for buyers. See our blog article about new large communities. Always verify information with your local Realtor.
Ask about end of year specials that are showing up now: Seem earlier than usual this year--communities use these to attract more buyers. Also look for special events being held at over 55 communities.
Note: We have noticed some popular new communities selling from their lists before their model homes are built. Contact communities early and get on the Interest List so you will be updated on the status.
Rentals: Check with your local Realtor whether it is a good time to buy or rent since rents in many markets are increasing. Source: NAR
