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.

Happy New Year!

For those interested here is an article by the NAR about how the new tax cuts will affect homeowners.

They go by various names: retirement communities, 55+ communities, age-restricted, independent communities, and active adult.  Finding these communities and listing them are what we are about.  We keep the lists as accurate and up-to-the-minute as possible--for you!   

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.

If higher prices make it harder for you to qualify, in some areas, try searching our low income housing and mobile home categories.  Also, look for age 55 and up communities with small square footage plans.  

From humble trailers to luxury estates, no matter what price range you prefer,
we have listings for you!

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.  

NAR Update:

The NAR (National Association of Realtors) has news releases monthly.  They give excellent updates.  Look for their most current one. Please consult with Realtors how this relates to the local market you are interested in and for advice. 

Overlapping Searches: This 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...
