Anyone who watches the news is aware that the real estate market exploded towards the end of 2020. With low mortgage interest rates and hordes of people moving out of the big cities, the market surged, and things are not expected to change anytime soon. This means that the inventory of available homes is low (down 22 percent last November), and homebuyers have to jump quickly when they find something they want.
This way of thinking is also important for active adult homebuyers since highly desirable 55+ communities like Raajipo in Central New Jersey are close to selling out. As of January 29, Raajipo was more than 90 percent sold out, with just 12 remaining lots for sale. It’s the only active adult neighborhood in Robbinsville, which is in Mercer County and close to historic Princeton.
Spacious Home for Sale
These single-family custom homes are priced from the high $400s to the low $500s and are on a gated property that will have 115 residences after the work is completed. Hexa Builders has designed Raajipo with four models, ranging from 2,186 to 2,2826 square feet. They offer two or three bedrooms, two baths, and attached two-car garages.
Each of these elegant homes has a first-floor master suite attached to a luxury master bath plus open floor plans and high-end finishes. Options may include 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, cathedral ceilings, and sunrooms. Buyers can choose from other desirable upgrades (Raajipo provides an on-staff interior designer) to customize their homes for their own needs and preferences. Raajipo’s homeowner’s association (HOA) fee will provide for lawn mowing, landscaping, snow removal, trash pickup, and access to the community amenities.
Coming Soon Amenities
Homeowners will also be able to take full advantage of a new, 4,000-square-foot community clubhouse that will provide a fitness center, an enclosed whirlpool spa, a business center, a catering kitchen, a great hall, and additional activity rooms. As the weather starts to cooperate, friends and neighbors will start to gather at the outdoor pool and patio, which will be opening soon. Plans also call for walking and biking trails, basketball and tennis courts, and a lovely outdoor gazebo.
Raajipo is a smaller 55+ neighborhood, but with a clubhouse to serve as a community gathering place, you can expect to easily meet new friends with similar interests. Soon enough, there will be groups, activities, and events organized for dynamic exercise classes, games, dining, sports, parties, and off-site adventures.
