With all the Short Sales in Atlanta, Foreclosures and lack of construction, one neighborhood still is crankin' out homes and selling them at a premium. Village at Deaton Creek is a active adult gated community with everything but their grocery store in terms of amenities.
Recently, the Hall Chamber has a meeting discussing the active adult communities in the area and how many people are bypassing Florida altogether to come straight to Atlanta.
Village at Deaton Creek offers all the expected amenities found in the usual Broward County locales but features 4 full seasons without having insurance payments exceed the mortgage.
Twiss (from the chamber) said some of the trends people look for when looking for a retirement community include "a place that’s in a great location, a place with beautiful surroundings that is close to their families and a place that is in the south, but not all the way in Florida."
Twiss told the crowd that the focus of Del Webb is to provide this type of community for those 55 and older who want to live a vibrant lifestyle... through being involved in social clubs, activities, and different classes.
