What did Buyers buy in Delaware, 2011?

What did our Buyers buy so far this year? Most of our clients are Baby Boomers over 55 that are relocating to Delaware as they near retirement. We did this same analysis last year and the statistics are similar but 6% more have chosen an age restricted community this year. We also worked with 3 times more buyers in 2011 than in either of the previous two year!

In 2011:

  • 31% of our Buyers bought a home in a 55+ Active Adult Community
  • 69% of our Buyers bought homes in a community with no age restriction

In both 2009 and 2010:

  • 25% bought in a 55+ community
  • 75% bought in all ages communities or in town

It's not that we don't know what we want, but there are so many more options. We make sure that our clients get the chance to consider all their options before making that big decision:

  • Active Adult Community or All Ages Planned Community
  • New Construction or Resale Home
  • Build now or Buy a Lot and Build Later
  • Live in town or at the beach
  • Be among the first in a new community or find one that is nearly complete

There is something for everyone and everyone is different. That's what makes working with our Buyer clients such FUN!
