If a bargain price is at the top of your 55+ desert dream home wish list, then you’ll want to visit this website before you start your house hunt http://www.55plusDesertHomes.com/foreclosures.html.
Unlike housing communities in the rest of the desert, there are very few 55-plus home foreclosures or bank-owned homes in the desert area. One reason is that not as many speculators and investors purchased in these communities before the economic bubble burst. The other reason is that many older buyers pay cash for their homes.
So, if you’re considering a move, remember that timing is everything and retirement living has rarely been as affordable as it is today, and may never be again.
