Bucks County 55 + Housing 1st Quarter Update
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).
Since last spring we have seen the demand for 55+ homes sky rocket therefore our inventory is at an all time low. Many of the resale communities have a waiting list.
However, since our last update we have seen a few come on the market in the following communities:
Legacy Oaks in Warrington (Link to Home for Sale)
The Villas at Chancellor’s Glen in Bensalem (Link to Homes for Sale)
The Villas at Riverview in Bristol (Link to Homes for Sale)
Heritage Creek Estates in Warrington – A Single Home (Link to Homes for Sale)
The Villages of Doylestown (Link to Homes for Sale)
The Swain Real Estate Team is watching each 55+ community closely. If you have an interest in one on these communities, let us know and we will make sure you are on our waiting lists to be notified first! Just email us at TheSwainTeam@gmail.com or call us at (215) 757-7257.
To meet the demand, Bucks County has a few new construction 55+ Communities.
Regency at Yardley - Yardley, Pa
Delancey Court – Newtown, Pa
The Preserve at Lamplighter Village - Warrington, Pa
The Enclave at Upper Makefield - Upper Makefield, Pa
Village of Southampton - Southampton, 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.
