Are you looking at Active Adult 55+ housing?


ConsiderGranor Price Homes' Bensalem, Bucks County, Pennsylvania site -- The Villas at Chancellor's Glen as well as Gloucester County , New Jersey's Villas at Broadacres.


I prefer the later for pricing starting below 200k, but the taxes are lower in PA.


These highly flexible, award-winning designs, have been the talk of Bucks County , Pennsylvania , where Granor Price homes has built similar communities for active adults. Each home features single-level living with tremendous expansion possibilities, having a finished loft space that can be converted into an additional bedroom suite, as well as a guaranteed dry full basement and attached single car garage.


Gloucester Township, Camden County, New Jersey, New Homes


The Villas at Broadacres is a 55+ Active Adult community conveniently located in Gloucester Township , New Jersey . The community is just one block from Blackwood-Clementon Road and 1.5 miles from the Route 42 Expressway.

There's a house for me that will go for sheriffs sale on the 20th if they don't sell. The owner owes a little over $145k, not sure how low you could get them to go down. It's a cute 3 bedroom rancher with a fenced yard.

I really hate to see them lose the house. The mother died a few years ago, now the kids will not be able to stay in the house they were raised in. If you'd like to see the MLS link, pm me.

You've posted the same thing 5 times. Do you get a commission if you help sell? Selling isn't allowed here, surprised no one pulled your posts yet.

I need to find a very inexpensive living environment. A small apartment or efficiency will do....i don't even need an actual bedroom. Just need a bathroom and some sort of kitchen. I am looking in the sussex, morris, hunterdon, somerset, passaic counties preferably.
Any help or suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated! I need this asap!

Please provide the answers to the questions in the Sticky at the top of the page. No one can guess what you consider a "very inexpensive living environment".

Wow, even though tis thread is from 2007, I'm actually shocked that someone wanted to buy a starter home.

Unlike people today who want their first home to be a 4-5 bedroom center hall colonial with low taxes, great school system and close to NYC.
