What’s the best deal in a 55+ community like Heritage Shores? Is it a “to-be-built” home? Or is it one of the resale homes on the market right now?
Consider that construction began at Heritage Shores, one of Coastal Delaware’s first active adult communities, at the end of 2005, the peak of the housing market. Targeted to the retiring Baby Boomers, very few Boomers were actually retired at that time. In fact, the oldest are just beginning to retire now, if they are lucky!
Initially sales were very strong but as the market in general slowed significantly, even special communities designed to attract active adults slowed in 2007 and 2008. Lennar, the original developer and one of the first builders at Heritage Shores, made a painful decision to pull out of Delaware and concentrate on other parts of the country where they had a larger presence. Providence Homes took over where Lennar left off and brought Ryan Homes into the community.
Of the resale homes you will see in this group, many are barely used and some have never been occupied. As sales have picked up again, some of the best deals have already sold, but there are still some great opportunities here for today’s buyers:
