Developers have come up with many ways to attract buyers to active adult communities. Although these incentives are not the same across the board, there are many that are being used by developers. For instance, builders are offering large incentive packages, cost free upgrades to the home of their choice, and cash discounts in order to bring down the price. All of these things will.....   Full Story
