Rockland, MA (PressExposure) December 30, 2008 -- Beechwood Village, which has become Massachusetts top selling active adult (55+) community located at 256 Beech Street in Rockland, has already sold half of all the 79 single family homes available in less than two years in a volatile market.
According to Barney Dunphy, a Rockland resident for more than 40 years who downsized to a Beechwood Village home, âWe fell in love with the place. We got into Beechwood at Phase I. Itâs not in any way an old age community â itâs definitely for active adults. Beechwood is a very quiet, peaceful and beautiful area. We really feel like we have a home instead of a house. Itâs designed exactly as we wanted with room to spare.â
âWe began Phase 1 of Beechwood just before the market started to shift. Home prices were higher and the homes for sale were just sitting on the market. Despite the overall market decline in home sales over the past year and a half, Beechwood sales have remained unaffected. This is primarily due to a number of factors. The location is ideal. Itâs close to shopping and all the major routes, yet the village area is quiet. Beechwood is a great value and people who are interested in a 55 plus community are drawn to it because they can build a high-quality home and have the space and amenities they want at a very fair price,â explained Jeff Reale, principal of Weichert Realtors Empire Associates.
He continued, âWeâre now in Phase 2 of construction with half of the homes already sold or built. With mortgage rates falling and home prices that are more stable, we should see another shift in the market. We expect Beechwood sales to become brisk over the next several months. Itâs the right market to make the lifestyle change from family home to a 55 plus community. If the community is selling well, like Beechwood is, then the investment will appreciate and certainly sell well in the future.â
For potential buyers who are on a fixed-income, Beechwood is ideal, as the homes are Energy Star Certified with 95 percent efficiency, with savings of up to 50% per month on heating and electric bills. Town water, sewer and trash pick-up make Beechwood Village even more attractive to buyers who are looking for a single family maintenance-free home. Not only that, but the village is pet-friendly and Beechwood residents have the freedom to build out if they desire it.
