We’ve all been hit by the ramifications of the past year, but it has been especially hard for many seniors and older adults who were isolated from their family and friends.
And while the homebuilding industry is already booming, families are coming to builders with new requirements to accommodate parents and make everyone feel a bit more comfortable.
BDX’s CEO, Tim Costello, one who always has a pulse on the homebuilding industry, was recently asked about these trends for an article that Forbes wrote titled, Six Wellness Design Trends for 55-Plus Homebuyers. Per Mr. Costello, multi-generational closeness and urban, master-planned communities are leading the way.
“Many hot housing markets across the Southeast are attracting all age groups driven by robust job growth, more affordable housing compared to major urban markets, and a climate and quality of life that appeals to Boomers,” Costello adds. What are these multi-generational buyers looking for? “Gated 55-plus enclaves in master-planned communities for all age groups provide many buyers with the best of both worlds,” he notes. This allows grandparents to live close by, without crowding themselves or their adult children.”
