Why not?

The market is white hot. You aren't the only retirees. You want something you may have to work really hard to get it.

That said, there may be models in Washington or Idaho. Find the model online and ask the builders where they can be viewed in WA.
The market is white hot, ~200 people a day are joining the lemming train into Washington. Homes in the lower end of the market are getting bid up, in some places 10% over listing price or more. One house a co-worker of mine was in a bidding war on went from $329K to $356K, and then some out of town investor came in closer to $400k with a fast closing cash offer and that was that. Seemingly we have all forgotten about 2008 I have been to Idaho and you guys are in a different world than we are for housing, I understand why you are disappointed.
Also, I'd be very leery of moving into a park here. We've had several owners of parks sell out to developments and end up leaving all the occupants homeless and they are powerless to do anything about it.

I had Wave, and was very happy. Lack of medical care has been, and is still a problem out there. Doctors make more money in bigger cities.

Because compared to home prices on the other side of the pond they are reasonably affordable.

Cedar Ridge (Anderson is the builder) has smaller lots. I've seen their models.. really attractive and the builder has a good solid reputation. I'd love one of their homes, but want a bigger yard and their estates are just beyond my budget...
