Leisure Village senior age restrictions “survive" foreclosure. The market values are based on the resale of the age restriction "surviving" foreclosure. The age restriction does not adversely affect marketability as the Leisure Village market appeal is that of an age-restricted (55+) Senior Housing Planned Unit Development.
Regarding price trends, Leisure Village prices increased ~12% during 2013. A drop in inventory during the latter part of the 2012 year along with rock-bottom interest rates created a shortage of listings with marketing times under 30 days. This continued into 2013 as listing agents reported that with a limited supply of listings, low interest rates and pent-up buyer demand, if properties were priced near market value they received offers within the first few weeks. Currently, after a slight spike in interest rates around the May/June time period, it appears the market may have somewhat peaked/stabilized around the months of July/August (summer 2013) and prices are showing a more stable to increasing trend.

Following this, and the website being ready and functional, the portal will allow mortgagees to electronically submit appraisal data to HUD/FHA.
