No New Homes… How can that happen?
What happens now?
Here we are in August of 2014 and we learn that no new homes can be delivered for another 12 – 15 months at Independence, one of the most popular 55+ communities in Coastal 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?
I know that 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.
Don’t despair, there happen to be some pretty fantastic existing homes for sale that you may want to consider. Join us on Saturday, SEPT 6, from 11–3pm for a tour of these 4 great homes before they’re gone, too.
Some, like this home at 23788 Samuel Adams Circle have a Solar system that is owned, not leased. That alone can save you thousands of dollars a year in energy costs. Not only that, but it is a beautiful home at an unbelievable price for this community. While the average sales price for homes at Independence has been mid $400s, this home is now listed for $375,000.
The home at 30146 George Washington Avenue was the original Huntington model and trust me, it still shows like a model with all of the original designer furniture and accessories. Elegance and a fantastic location on the circle leading to the clubhouse, Independence Hall.
Another home just listed for sale is a luxurious Kingfisher, built in 2013 and located at 29683 Franklin Roosevelt Lane. You will find every upgrade and finishing touch in this home, all the things that have made the Kingfisher a top pick in all Schell Brothers communities. The kitchen alone is one of the most beautiful I have seen and all the windows fill the living space with light, no matter where you are.
Our newest listing is at 23724 Samuel Adams Circle, an exquisite Hancock on a premium perimeter lot backing to open space with pond views. With an owned solar system, this home is bright and open and highly energy efficient. Hickory hardwood floors throughout the living areas, upgraded gourmet kitchen, the ultimate owners suite with walk-in BCD custom closets, Plantation shutters, sunroom, gas fireplace and built-ins and rear paver patio with awning and hot tub.
Right after Labor Day, when the kids are back in school and vacation season is over for the year, we are having a huge Open House at all of our homes for sale at Independence. If you’re in the market now, you may want to schedule an appointment to see these homes before then. Believe it or not, we tend to be even busier in the Fall when more buyers tend to start their search, so let us know how we can be of help when you’re ready.
