TAKE NOTICE: Some communities are now selling out of their 1st phase before they have built model homes.  You may think you have time and you find out the best selection is gone or the community has sold out.  It is best to stay in touch with a community early on if you have an interest.  Lower priced homes sell fastest.  


  • 55 Communities - Sometimes called age-restricted. They are rich with amenities.  They are in all categories.  
  • Senior Apartments - Rental apartments for seniors with many or few amenities.
  • Active Adult - Geared toward amenities and rules desirable for senior or retired lifestyle but not necessarily age-restricted.

Many communities are selling out and owners are expressing their happiness that the market has improved for them after the last 5 years of dwindling sales and prices.  Communities have been quickly adjusting prices (usually up) to fit the market.  

We have been putting the new prices on, however, we have not had time to do them all.  This is not intended to be hype but we are alerting you to the facts we have recently noted for your information.  Please check for the latest 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 continuing to rapidly decline and less builder inventory available increases prices.  

Summer Update:    We have seen more price increases, inventories drying up or communities selling out.  Fortunately, for now, interest rates continue low.  Generally, homes are still selling well.  More new retirement homes are being built and price increases are moderating which will keep the overall market more affordable for buyers.  Summer is the most active time for the real estate market.

Note: We have noticed some popular new communities selling from their lists before their model homes are built.  In this market, 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

Late Summer:  People are starting to look at Florida now for upcoming season.

We have reviews ...

Recent review: Home Towne Square in Lancaster County, Pa.

Even with increases, prices are still low ... Can you believe the prices you are seeing; combined with still low interest rates, it may be a good time to go look.  You might see something you can't resist.

Read our blog for tips on the latest.

Florida, Nevada, California and Arizona are "on sale" now and home prices are lower since 2006.  

Update: The NAR reports statistics monthly. See their current updates.  

Please consult with Realtors how this relates to the local market you are interested in and for advice.   

Overlapping Searches: Overlapping occurs when your search fits more than one category.  This happens a lot so please check more than one category to find what you are looking for. For instance, mobile homes can be found in the mobile home, RV and manufactured categories as well as state categories.

We have a lot to view for just one visit--we hope you'll Bookmark us so you'll come back for more as our site constantly changes.

So let's get started..
