An Active Adult community is a neighborhood designed, planned and built primarily for mature adults. Some of these neighborhoods are age restricted, typically at 55 or older; however, many in Metro Atlanta have no age restriction and simply focus on one-level living (no more steps!) and a low-maintenance lifestyle.
We (Kathy and Ben) have specialized in working with the Active Adult client, both buying and selling, for over a decade and are experts on these neighborhoods throughout North Metro Atlanta. Heck, Kathy has even moved into an Active Adult neighborhood in Woodstock.
First, because we specialize in the Active Adult market, we not only know what is available now but we also know where many of the best builders will be building homes next. As an example, we have registered several of our clients on a VIP Priority List for a neighborhood in Woodstock that will begin construction in the next 2-3 months, ensuring that our clients will be among the first to pick their homesites.
Second, if you go out on your own and are not represented by an agent, when you walk into a sales office, that agent represents the builder’s interests, not yours. Therefore, you will get their best sales pitch about their neighborhood and rest assured they will not tell you anything negative about their neighborhood and builder. If the neighborhood has resale homes in addition to new construction, you may never know about these additional homes available for sale.
Third, if you like a neighborhood but nothing is currently for sale, we can still help you find a home, even if nothing is on the market. We’ve helped 2 buyers this year alone, buy and move into a neighborhood by finding a seller that did not have their home marketed.
Lastly, because inventory is so limited in the Active Adult market= remember the recent recession? (Virtually no homes were built for 5-6 years.) So, your only option may be to build. With our extensive new construction experience, we will help you pick a great homesite to build on, review your contract, help you with design selections and go to all of your builder meetings from contract to closing.
And, if you are not buying but thinking of selling an Active Adult home, we can help you too. Our marketing plan is unsurpassed; plus, we have accumulated hundreds of prospective buyer’s names looking in the Active Adult market and will make sure that they know about your home if you hire us.
So, if you think that the Active Adult lifestyle might be for you, give us a call at 404-314-8129 and let’s get started!
