The waiting is finally over.

Del Webb, the premier builder of active adult communities in the nation, is grand opening its first Del Webb community in the Greater Houston area, and bringing its highly sought-after active lifestyle to the region’s residents aged 55 and better.

Potential homebuyers will tour the new sales center and model park, which features nine designer-decorated homes. The community offers all single-story homes, ranging from 1,137-2,648 square feet. Each of these home plans has been carefully designed to meet the needs of future residents, and reflects the high quality of construction that has made Del Webb a leading builder of active adult communities. Prices start in the $130s.

The newest neighborhood to join Fort Bend County is targeted toward the Baby Boomer generation, which represents one of the fastest-growing home buying demographics in the U.S. and are looking for a resort-style community with low-maintenance living. Del Webb in Houston will be one of more than 50 Del Webb active adult communities currently for sale across the country.
