Demand for 55 + Housing is at an all-time high in Bucks County, Pa.
With a growing number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age, 55+ communities may become even more popular with older homebuyers. The National Association of Home Builders, expects home sales in 55+ communities to increase by nearly 25 percent this year. By 2020, they also estimate that households over 55 years old could be as high as 46.6 percent (up from 42 percent in 2012).
The Demand for 55+ Housing in Bucks County is GREAT! We wish we had more inventory. Many communities have a waiting list due to the community’s popularity. Some of the communities have not seen a home come on the market in months, or even a year.

Regency at Yardley
Delancey Court – Newtown, Pa
The Preserve at Lamplighter Village
The Enclave at Upper Makefield
Village of Southampton - Southampton, Pa
Meridian of Valley Square - Warrington, Pa
For many we talk to amenities are important. The amount of amenities offered can vary greatly from one community to the next. All of the new construction, except for The Enclave at upper Makefield and Village of Southampton, offer a clubhouse with amenities.
While active adult developments typically cater to those who want to downsize with small, thoughtfully designed homes, many new communities include homes in a wide range of sizes. It is not unusual to find model homes ranging in size from barely 1,000 to over 3,000 square feet in the same community. Many homes continue to offer main-level living, with first-floor master bedroom suites, but second-story lofts are becoming a popular way to extend the living space.
If you have any questions or are ready to find your 55 and greater community, contact us today at TheSwainTeam@gmail.com or call us at (215) 757-7257. We are more than willing to help you.
