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

Fall is just around the corner:

There is a cycle to things:  many communities have sold out this past summer ... but just as these sell out, new ones take their place and so it goes.   

Cool Fall days invite us to get out and visit the 55+ communities one has been admiring for awhile.  Maybe you'd like to be in by Christmas.  It's still possible if you don't wait to the last minute.  Communities have homes that are already built that are waiting for a buyer.  Homes that are not built yet take about three months and custom homes take longer.  Some communities will sell their model home.  Communities try to accommodate their customer's needs.   

Begin looking for holiday parties open to the public advertised on 55+ community websites.  Or even better sign up from the website to get updates.  View the community in a festive and welcoming light at special events around Fall holidays.

When touring model homes, be sure to notice 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. 

Time to be thinking about that winter getaway--and not just thinking but doing something about it.  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.

Usually by September Florida snowbird rentals are selling out.   For seasonal rentals, see our short-term rental page or Florida apartments page.  Often overlooked, RV park communities are another option for snowbird getaways. 

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 for luxury 55+ communities.  Builders of 55+ communities are offering incentives now to help you purchase your new home.  Be sure to ask what these are.

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.

 nar update:

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.
