Centex Homes provides active adult homebuyers looking to downsize, as well as first-time homebuyers, with innovative home designs at an attractive price, all without sacrificing quality or attention to detail. Centex has an extensive collection of smart, flexible floor plans combined with timeless designs that are found throughout every home they build in each community. Homes are designed and tailored to meet the demands of today’s homebuyer and are backed by a ten-year limited structural warranty, making it easy for residents to trust in Centex's decades of experience in the homebuilding industry. All new Centex homes come equipped with a variety of energy-efficient features, which vary in each home and community and help reduce energy consumption while maintaining comfort and luxury. Some of the energy-efficient systems that homeowners may find in their new Centex home include Energy Star qualified appliances, compact fluorescent and LED lighting, high-efficiency HVAC systems, low-emissivity windows, programmable thermostats, and radiant barrier roof decking. Buyers can also customize their homes by utilizing interactive tools that allow them to add details and other personal touches to enhance their dream home. Over the years, Centex has built homes in active adult communities throughout the U.S. and continues to bring its quality home designs to today’s homebuyers and retirees looking to downsize. Baby Boomers can find beautiful homes on a resale-only basis at Ardiente, a 55+ community in North Las Vegas, Nevada. Centex was the first builder to offer new home designs when it began construction in 2005. Homebuyers can select from eight single-story floor plans ranging in size from 1,235 to 2,352 square feet. In 2010, the active adult community was acquired by Shea Homes, which offers new construction homes. Centex has also had a presence in other established 55-plus communities, including Cypress Falls at The Woodlands in North Port, Florida, Carroll’s Creek in Gambrills, Maryland, and Potomac Green in Ashburn, Virginia. These age-restricted communities offer reasonably priced resale homes built by Centex that offer spacious and distinct designs, elegant master suites, inviting living areas, welcoming gathering spaces, and low-maintenance exteriors. Active adults looking for quality-built homes in attractive age-restricted communities should check out Centex Homes to find their ideal dream home.
