TAKE NOTICE: Some communities are now selling out of their 1st phase before they have built model homes. (Homes are still selling.) It is best to stay in touch with a community early on if you have an interest. Lower priced homes sell fastest.

Now as summer is in full swing we are finding that showings are harder to come by.
What is the answer to help smooth out all this variability? The VIP List. We suggest, and many community websites are now suggesting, that you go to the community website of the builder and from the website sign onto what is called a VIP List. If you are on that list, you will receive updates such as when communities have new phases, when new homesites are released, when showings resume, what kind of showing is available, updated prices, current status, etc. There is no obligation on your part to be kept informed by the builder. The VIP List will do that for you. You can ask if there are any requirements to be on the list. Sometimes other names are given than VIP List.
To be informed about the most current status of the community, sign onto the VIP List from the builder's website for the community you are interested in. We have a very tight market which is complicated by the pandemic.
Good Time to Buy? I think the thing that is on many people's minds right now is: Should I buy now. Interest rates are still low.
The problem of low inventory right now could be a temporary situation due to the effects of Covid. With limited inventory, homes are selling fast, prices continue to rise, and communities are selling out. So you have to answer the question by weighing all the factors in your personal situation.
Inventory has increased recently with new communities being added --See our new article about recently added 55+ communities for late 2021 and early 2022.
Covid-19 Status: Most communities are open and selling. We recommend you call the community first before going to see how they are handling the current situation with the virus and if they are open or to make an appointment. Some communities require an appointment so that they can prepare for the showing. Increased interaction online and private appointments with agents are making it possible to purchase or rent homes. Check online or by phone with the individual communities to see what they are doing. Also, you can view the virtual showings on their website and plan what you want to view at the community before going.

New offerings with more creative designs and features in 2021. Whether you are retired or not these communities get more exciting and offer more every year. Make this year your time to make a change and purchase in a 55+ community.
When touring model homes, be sure to ask the agent what amenities are being offered. The most active communities have lots of amenities and opportunities to meet new people. Prices are still very much on the flux so be sure to check individual community websites for the latest community pricing. We do our best to keep up with today's rapidly changing prices but the only way to find the most current price is to call the builders or look at their websites.
Senior RV parks can be some of the happiest places in the Snowbird Season Oct-May. Read our review of an RV Park to see the fun that can be had. (Note: some activities may be canceled during this time to curtail virus spread. Please check with the community.) It's never too soon to plan for the next season's stay.
Higher Prices Still a Concern for Low Income Retirees
Prices are still going up on rentals and home purchase, leaving many out of the market. Looking for a lower-priced option? Try searching our low income housing and mobile home categories. RV park model communities, also called "tiny homes" are popular now and affordable, and if you lease the land even more affordable.
The National Association of Realtors has news releases monthly. They give excellent updates on the real estate market. Please consult with Realtors how this relates to your local market or one you are interested in and for advice.
Note: Overlapping occurs when your search fits more than one category. This happens a lot. The remedy is to 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...
