Homes for Sale in Del Webb Nexton

I journeyed out last week to see the progress being made at Del Webb Nexton and to help a client purchase a lot for their new home. It was exciting to see all of the work happening to make Del Webb Nexton another great 55+ community in Summerville!

They have sold 180 homes out at Del Webb Nexton (My team sold one just last month…New Home in Del Webb Nexton…Just SOLD! ) and the amenities are well underway. When I was out there, the siding was being prepped on the 27,000 square foot amenity center and the indoor pool was already poured! They are still planning to open the amenity center (aka The Resort) this summer, July 2019.

They are running some of the best deals right now that I have seen since they started selling out there. (These change all the time, so if you are interested, please reach out to me.)

Looking for Foreclosures for sale in Summerville? Wanting to find a great deal on your next home? Click Here  for a complete list of foreclosures for sale in the Greater Summerville and Charleston area.  If you are planning to look into a foreclosure, here are three tips I’d like to share.

Foreclosures for Sale in Summerville, SC

  1. Budget carefully  Just because it has a low price, doesn’t mean it is the perfect deal.  Evaluate your finances and make sure you have money for not only the down payment and mortgage payment, but also for any repairs.  If you are planning to rehab and rent it, can you afford to not have a tenant for while? Make sure you have thought through your entire budget.
  2. How Long Has the House been Vacant? If the home has set vacant for a long time, watch for damages in the house such as the plumbing seals, bugs, sinks, toilets and washer drains.
  3. Get a Private Inspection These are usually required, but even if not, make sure you have one professionally done to make sure you are aware of all issues the house may have and prevent future damage.

Please contact me if any of the foreclosures for sale in Summerville, SC look promising to you or you would like more information please contact me.
