Best Years, Best Home: Why More 55+ Homebuyers Are Choosing New Construction

January 25, 2021

There are clear and obvious benefits to choosing a new construction home over a resale home that are applicable for all homebuyers, from shiny new appliances to not worrying how 30 years of Duct Tape and DIY quick fixes will come back to haunt you.

But there are a host of additional advantages to new construction when it comes to 55-plus homebuyers. From never having to worry about who’s mowing the lawn to never sweating another move, building a new construction home in one of StyleCraft’s Freestyle communities comes with plenty of upside built in.

Here’s a closer look at why StyleCraft’s Freestyle communities continue to grow in popularity for Active-Adult homebuyers.


We’ve all said it, usually right after unpacking that last box — “I’m never moving again!” But when you move into your StyleCraft Freestyle home, you’ll finally mean it. That’s because we design our homes for today and tomorrow, providing Active-Adults the flexibility to age in place. With the right spaces in the right places, open layouts, and first-floor Owner’s Suites, you’ll find all the comfort and convenience you need to feel right at home for years to come.


There was a time in your life when moving into a resale home was simply a prelude to never-ending stops to the home improvement store. With Freestyle homes, you won’t need to repaint this wall or replace that lighting fixture. Instead, you get to establish your style from the get-go, cruising our 2,000-sq.-ft. Design Studio to make selections reflecting your tastes and preferences. It can be a daunting experience — choosing from among thousands of flooring options, cabinets, and exterior features — which is why our New Home Design Consultant will be right there to help you plot out your aesthetic. Don’t worry, we’ll also study up with you on available selections and budget considerations so you’re ready for the big day.


When you buy a resale home, your neighbors and overall sense of community are left to chance. But at a Freestyle community, everyone is moving in around the same time and traveling in the same lane of life. Plus, there are generous community amenities designed to spark get-togethers, including clubhouses, pools, tennis courts, community gardens, and more. It won’t be long before you’re picking the next novel for the book club, winning the doubles tournament, or hosting game night.


With a resale home, so many of your weekends are booked with time-consuming tasks and upkeep. This, in turn, makes it tough to participate in all the cookouts, fun, and games. But not here. Our Freestyle communities are aptly named because they free up your time thanks to included lawn care and exterior maintenance. This means less time weeding, winterizing, and changing hard-to-reach lightbulbs — and more time spent with your favorite people, doing your favorite things.

Finally, you should know that the entire StyleCraft team is there to support your homebuilding journey every step of the way. Whether you’re choosing your floor plan, celebrating the closing, or asking warranty questions long afterward, your New Homes Sales Consultant, in-house warranty team, trusted partners, and many others have your back.

With all these benefits and advantages in mind, what’s keeping you from beginning your new construction home search today? Start exploring our Freestyle communities HERE.
