There Are Many Advantages To Gently Loved Pre-Owned Homes In A Quality Over-55 Community Like SummerGlen.

Why Buy A Resale Home At SummerGlen?

Purchasing a beautiful customized resale home at SummerGlen can have many advantages over buying a new home in other retirement communities here in Central Florida.  Here are just a few.

Have you ever gone into a new community’s model center and been bowled over by the beautiful decor and exquisite finishes, only to be disappointed to learn that to give your home the same look would add tens of thousands of dollars to the price?  Then, you’ll never really know how it’s going to look until you get to the walk-through just before closing.

SummerGlen homes often have these same customizations included in the selling price, AND you will be able to see exactly the home you choose to live in.

VALUE--A SummerGlen resale home is often priced thousands of dollars less than a builder new home in developing communities.  And resale homes often include options and upgrades that, if even offered, will be priced optionally by new home builders.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY--Many SummerGlen resale homes feature Taylored Foam insulation in side walls , R-38  ceiling insulation, and 14 SEER air conditioning systems,  making them among the most efficient homes in the market, even surpassing many current builder standards.

UPGRADED APPLIANCES–While new home builders use a relatively inexpensive “buider’s standard” appliances package, which may even include refrigerators or microwaves, most SummerGlen resale homes offer appliance upgrades that have been installed to their original owners specifications.  And many homes offer appliance maintenance programs that have been paid in advance or are available to purchase at a very modest cost.

MATURE LANDSCAPING--With a SummerGlen resale home, you will move into your home with mature, and often substantially upgraded landscaping that will require minimal care.  New landscaping  will take years to mature, and is often an expensive and time-consuming in its early stages of growth.

WARRANTIES--A comprehensive Resale Home Warranty is available, if desired, through SummerGlen Realty on all resale homes we represent and is the same or better than most builders’ new home warranties. And the remaining portion of the RWC 10-year insured structural warranty will transfer with the home.

A STABLE RESIDENT-OWNED COMMUNITY--New communities are often operated by the developer with heavy subsidies to make association fees seem reasonable.  Once owners take over, which may be years away, they often find fees must increase dramatically once the developer stops paying.  And homeowners have no say in the operation of a developer controlled association.  SummerGlen is totally under homeowner control with association fees that are very reasonable and have been stable for years.

AND MUCH MORE--Ask your SummerGlen Realty representative to point out the many special features of each of our available homes, many of which may not even be available on new homes being sold today.
