But it won't be for months, if our home sells quickly we will have to move in a appt. to the house is done.
I think we are a little younger than most who live there we are in our late 50's. but ready to be around our peers. You are right about that guy at bon ayre. sad that some people might have desided not to go there because of him.
well talk soon

Hi,

Wilmington is about an hour away which is not bad. There is a bus that goes up RT13......Route 301 bus. I have not taken it. But if you husband did not want to drive, then there is public trans. DART could probably tell you more.
He may want to sit back and relax to work.

I think you mean Debbie in SM. And yes she is a doll. haahaha....As for Draper, yeah i think many have decided not to buy in Bon Ayre on account of his fabulouso personality
He has been there for a few years. Makes you wonder. The homes are selling but I think some sell on their own merit.
They are not that expensive so that is one advantage. Of course, no pool but some don't care.

I hate to burst your bubble but you will not be the babies of the community.
The youngest is 53 and many others are still in their fifties. I'm not that old either
Then we have some in their 70"s and 80's but most are 50 ish to mid 60's

hehe that is a loaded question. There are many companies along route 13 that sell modular homes but I dont' think they sell the land?

I'm not sure what you are asking?

Default Bon Ayre Arrogance...

We looked at Bon Ayre just recently and were greeted with similar 'coldness' from the Sales person and lack of requested information (community covenants, taxes, etc.) from him. We stopped to talk to residents of the community and found out that he is also the 'onsite manager', whatever that is....but it doesn't sound good based upon his attitude. We're going to keep looking around because we don't trust the guy!

He certainly doesn't have charisma.......and it makes me wonder how they can sell so many homes.
The price is cheap and they do offer a good land lease deal for 9 years. So that may be why.
We almost did buy but no pool and I decided that I would not be happy without a pool.

Be careful! Modular is not the same as a Doublewide Manufactured Home (no matter what the salesperson tells you). Doublewides have HUD seals/labels, a steel frame, and a motor vehicle title. The seal indicates that a 3rd party company has inspected the home, and it meets all requirements. Modulars are simply assembled in a plant under controlled climate conditions, and while they are "manufactured" they do not have that HUD seal/label. Financing for doublewide manufactured homes is becoming more difficult to obtain, and a must is that it be placed on a permanent foundation, wheels/hitch removed, and title surrendered.

Interesting. I never knew this. I thought they were one and the same.
Glad to hear the manufactured homes have a HUD seal and all the good stuff.
We recently bought one.
