Is it best to use a development's own agent to buy a resale in a 55+ community?My husband and I are looking for a premium lot home (one that doesn't back up to other houses and has landscaped privacy) in a 55+ community in south central NJ. We have been out with an agent several times and have seen a dozen or so properties. Since we can't get into gated communities without an agent and so far haven't seen what we're looking for, is there another approach anyone can think of? I considered writing to homeowners directly (in case they're thinking of selling) but we are under a time crunch because we sold our house already. We have very specific criteria such as upgraded kitchens, hardwood floors, 2+ baths, etc. Thanks.June 05 2010 - Monroe00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
