Home owners who live in 55+ communities such as Viera, Florida's Heritage Isle, have the advantage of knowing who their home buyer will be, at least demographically.
Their prospective buyer will likely share many of their characteristics. These traits may include retiring, downsizing (or not), escaping the cold winters up north while possibly looking for a neighborhood of their peers.
One of the most common characteristics in my experience as a real estate agent working with buyers seeking a Florida 55+ community is they are ready to relax and not deal with home maintenance or repairs.
As a seller the above paragraph is key when you prepare to sell your 55+ community home.
Most prospective home buyers in Florida 55+ communities are not looking to remodel a home or update the home. They are not anxious to re-paint or put in a new kitchen. They are not looking for a fixer upper that needs new carpet, appliances or air conditioning systems.
If one is considering selling their home in one of the several Brevard County, Florida 55+ communities like Indian River Colony Club, Grand Isle or Heritage Isle, take a look inside your home. The above communities all offer exterior maintenance and landscaping to a degree so the curb appeal will already be there.
