True but we do want to make the process easier for them as they probably won't be living near us. We will have to check out the area and it will depend upon what is available on the market when we are ready to buy. I'm thinking we might sell our house first, move to a rental and slowly look for a house. This is 4 years down the road so I'm doing some advance planning. Of course, my brother is moving to someplace warm for his retirement -- he is looking at Austin, Texas or someplace in Nevada/Arizona.

You may consider the new retirement area in Crofton area. I believe the name is The Villages at Two Rivers. NVHomes, Ryan Homes, and others will be building there. Models are supposed to open in Nov. 2014 for the NV homes and Ryan said their models will be open in 2015. The Villages at Two Rivers The also have a Facebook page for information.

We were looking at some of the condos in Crofton (especially the one within walking distance to the Waugh Chapel Centre). If we can get a singe family house/townhouse/villa, that would even be better. There isn't a lot of information on their webpage regarding layouts, pricing etc.

I believe NVHomes has built for active adults in Columbia, Pikesville and Havre de Grace, and they tend to be the higher end market. I'd expect their price to start in the upper $300K. The Ryan townhomes may be less. They have also built for active adults (their Legacy line) around Ellicott City, Laurel and Havre de Grace.

NV Homes built an active adults community in Marriottsville called Waverly, and Two Rivers is supposed to be similar. They recently held an information session for Two Rivers, but perhaps you could call them and find out when the next session will be. I believe the single family homes are starting in the mid to upper 500's.

Those are going to be pretty big homes if it is similar to the Waverly. We are living in a 2600 sq. ft. house and we want to downsize to about 1500 sq. ft. I don't want to have to clean such a big place anymore.

Have you seen Ryan's Legacy at Cherry Tree? They are elevator condos in Laurel at 1489 square feet. They have built similar models in other places.
