55+ Independence Buyers: There Are Options!
In August of 2014 and we learned that no new homes can be delivered for another 12 – 15 months at Independence, one of the most popular 55+ communities in Millsboro, Delaware.
If anything illustrates just how busy we have been this year, this one fact tells you a lot. Between 43 and 46 new homes will settle in 2014. That is a significant increase over the 32 homes that settled in 2013 and it frankly sold out the entire first half of this community of new homes for active adults faster than even Schell Brothers forecast.
What do Independence buyers do now?
Many of you have been looking at Independence for years. You were waiting to retire or until you had a contract on your home but now you’re ready to move and you would prefer not to be homeless for a year or more. Living in limbo is never fun. When you’re ready to get on with your life, you want to begin in your new home.
We suggest these buyers consider a quality pre-owned home in Independence. In most cases, the Sellers have had a choice of premium lots. Some bought property with beautiful views or privacy. They have purchased the “Boomers’ most popular options and upgrades” including energy-efficient appliances. Some homes come with their own solar power systems. Some Sellers have already invested in the exterior curb appeal of the home with custom paver patios, gardens, and lush landscaping; and will include many post-purchase upgrades like those tasteful window treatments, sound systems and other fixtures when they sell their home.
