One of the hallmarks of the Boomer generation is researching everything before making a decision. Perhaps this is in part because of the ease of finding things out – the internet literally puts the world at our fingertips! - but the popularity of consumer magazines and newspapers among this segment of the population predates online searches by several decades.
It comes as no surprise, then, that Baby Boomers research profusely before deciding on which community to right-size, as well as which home best suits their needs when they do decide on a location.
A few of the deciding factors include:
According to studies of home building trends, Baby Boomers are all about flexible spaces, and not always about the number of rooms or how many square feet a floor plan contains. For example, rooms that function day-to-day as an office or library do double-duty over the holidays as overflow guest rooms, with daybeds, sleeper-sofas, or even new-styles of Murphy beds, which are making quite a comeback!
Active Adults are increasingly seeking homes that encourage “active aging,” which the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) defines as, “the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation, and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age.” Active Aging includes opportunities for physical fitness, mental stimulation, social interaction, and more. Community clubhouses, wide sidewalks and welcoming front porches, and neighbors who share similar life-stage experiences are just the beginnings of a quality Active Adult community.
Active Adults also want to feel like they are a part of the overall community, beyond their neighborhood, so location is often a deciding factor when purchasing a home. Proximity to shopping, dining, health care, cultural events and entertainment, and travel routes, play a large part in the decision-making process for Active Adult home buyers.
