Buying Made Easy

Living Better is a Breeze

At Traditions of America, we don’t just build active adult communities; our mission is to improve the lives of people like you — active 55+ adults looking for the opportunity to Live Better. The journey starts with choosing the right community and then building your DreamHome. We understand that the prospect of selecting a community, selling your home, having a new home built and dealing with a move can seem overwhelming.

That’s why we have developed a range of innovative programs to help you through every step of the process. Discover how your next move can be worry-free — and risk-free.

Our Unique Programs

Traditions of America customers can take advantage of our professional resale management services with Traditions Realty. Our HomeFree, HomeAssist and TraditionsAdvantage programs have helped hundreds of residents sell their previous home and start living better in one of our active adult communities.


HomeFree is a unique, risk-free program that allows you to reserve a new home and home site at today’s price, without the risk of owning two homes at the same time. Once you purchase your new home, Traditions Realty will prepare an evaluation based on estimates from agents, local to your market area. If you accept the list price, Traditions will assist with selecting the best agent to represent you. If we don’t sell your existing home, you don’t have to buy ours!


The Traditions Realty team specializes in helping homeowners sell their existing home at a fair price and in a reasonable timeframe. They will represent your interests during this important step in the home purchase process. With HomeAssist, your agent will provide expertise in marketing your home, contract oversight, staging and everything you need to get your home sold. Your home list price will be determined by an in-depth price evaluation process using estimates from local Realtors.


Don’t want to sign a HomeAssist contract, no problem! For over 15 years we have been working with the top Real Estate agents in your local market. We have done the legwork on company market share, quality of services and top producers. Why not take the opportunity to interview the best Realtors in your local area for FREE with absolutely no obligation? Take advantage of TraditionsAdvantage today.

Perfect Timing

While most customers elect to build their new home immediately, others opt for longer term delivery. With this flexible option you can choose your home now, lock in at the current price and schedule your move for a future date.
