Industry Expert Review

Buyers should consider while older homes come at a very good price they may require more updating of kitchens, baths and mechanical items. Also older homes tend to be less energy efficient so the cost of ownership maybe slightly higher than new homes. Today's newer homes also tend to be designed with more open concepts. Having considered this; if you're looking for a great lifestyle at a great price then Leisure World should make your short list.
