What does freedom mean to today’s discerning, and deserving baby boomers? Freedom to pursue a hobby, freedom to travel, or perhaps it’s the freedom to age in place in a home that’s move in ready, with minimal maintenance. For the 55+ homebuyer, D.R. Horton knows what active adults are looking for, with quality, beauty, and affordability being at the forefront.


For over 35 years, D.R. Horton has taken pride in constructing the American dream designed with boomers, and retirees in mind. Freedom Homes are being sold in idyllic locations including Arizona, Texas, and South Carolina with the most recent installment making its debut in Southwest Florida. Buying a new home vs. resale is practical in terms of affordability, and practicality. Aside from being turn key, without needing a new roof right off the bat, new construction offers the latest in energy efficiency, a home warranty, and in the case of Freedom Homes, provides a low maintenance lifestyle.


Boomers have been spearheading the active adult market for decades, with community builders working hard to design homes based around the desires of this fast growing demographic. Unique communities such as Farm at Brunswick in Carolina Shores, is a taste of Americana with spacious two bedroom, two bath homes priced in the $200’s with fun features including a windmill, and even a silo. In Katy, Texas, Wellspring at Tamarron gives the 55+ homebuyer a range of beautiful floor plans to choose from with options of up to five bedrooms, within a peaceful, gated community.


Freedom Home communities whether exclusively 55+ or age targeted, offer active lifestyle amenities some with resort style swimming pools, and walking trails to promote wellness, while being in proximity to dining, shopping, and local attractions. Active adults want quality of living, and affordability, with location being key, which is why D.R. Horton keeps doing what they do building retirement dreams one home at a time.
