Approaching this undertaking from an analytical view point, consideration was given to factors including weather, proximity to a major airport, tax considerations, affordability, quality of home construction and access to health care. Softer analysis (but just as important considerations)included a location that was enticing to family and friends to visit, menu of community amenities and activities, and the personal fit with people already living in the community. Using these factors, I visited communities in Florida, Arizona and Texas during 2012 and 2013 so I could make an informed and intelligent decision from an up close and personal experience.
After careful analysis, my decision was to join the community at Del Webb Orlando. Del Webb Orlando ended up ranking first in each of the factors I utilized to make my decision.
My advice to anyone looking to find a retirement home is to take the time to identify the factors important to them as they look to live their dream. Research those factors and then jump in and enjoy. Best wishes with your decision making.
I am writing this review to inform you about my new home at Del Webb Orlando and the experiences that I had throughout the entire
big purchasing event in my life!
From the moment that I drove onto the beautifully landscaped Del Webb property until the moment that I walked into our beautiful new home the entire process was and is a skillfully orchestrated process!
I did my homework prior to purchasing here! And I believe Del Webb Orlando is the best new home solution to your quest in a 100 mile radius! It's location is soo convenient to Orlando, attractions, international airport and Shopping (that is my passion)!
The beautiful clubhouse is so current with the latest and finest workout equipment and an indoor and an outdoor pool! The poolside events are fun to attend! Golf and biking, walking paths, tennis court , pickle ball are all right here!
And...if you love playing cards ( did I mention that this is another of my passions!) then come on and move in! Crafting and sewing and knitting and groups that meet to talk about the days' events in the world and local area...are fun too! And if IT isn't scheduled?? Then just get IT started! In other words there's something for everyone!
AND my new home is everything that I ever dreamed of! The home selection was assisted by the fine sales team that are here! Then the fun began..picking out what you wanted your new home to. to look like inside and out! Onto the building stage..this company schedules you come into the unfinished home in different stages for your inspection! WOW that was a great step during the entire process!
Finally your home is ready and the mortgage company, insurance and other information needed for your transition is made easier and smoother for you because they have it all spelled out for you right here!
I am now settling into my beautiful new home, playing cards, shopping and loving the neighbors and new acquaintances.
Hmm .. I forgot to tell you about the beautiful landscaping that comes with the purchase of your home! Just Lovely! It's Soo nice to drive through the community and up to your home and seeing all of the beautiful landscapes!
I am so happy to be calling Del Webb my home!
Another fine quality that I treasure in a person and sales professional is honesty! Sue demonstrated that quality through out the entire process! She skillfully guided us and yes at times went the extra mile! We were in the final process of signing on the dotted line..it was a rainy miserable day..however Sue offered to run and get lunch..and she even took our 2 dogs out for a walk in the rain ..so that we could continue selection process!!!
She is a committed real estate professional! I'm very thankful that
We connected..viewed the model homes and loved the community!
Yes we did purchase a wonderful 2 story home..we're just settling in and enjoy our new home ..our neighbors and the beautiful club house!
If you are looking for a Real Estate Professional that is personable, helpful and extremely honest and sincere...then look no further!
Sign me a Happy Del Webb Home Owner!
Do you want to change something here at DWO? No, sorry. the PULTE controlled board is unresponsive. They only care about selling you a home. The hell with you after you move in. God forbid you have a warranty issue.
We also have location, location. It's so close to anything you would ever want to do or see.That means alot to me, I always hated having to travel so far just to go to dinner or the store and I like being close to the airport.
