These communities focus on affordability.  Your dollar will stretch.  So you will find that these homes include basic options 36 inch kitchen cabinets, laminate counter tops, 8 foot ceilings, plastic showers and tubs, sprinklers in front yard only, three tabs roofing shingles;  all to keep the cost down.  While the home may be basic, every buyer can elect to upgrade certain items on their wish list for an additional expense.


These homes are built under 2,000 sq. ft. to about 3,000 square feet.  The communities are on the smaller side and amenities are minimal to keep HOA fees down. So if you are looking for tennis courts and onsite gym these communities may not be for you.  If having a new home over an older home is your top consideration, then these will work well.
