These baby boomers and older folks want much different things in their homes than they did when they were 30 or 40. And “active adults” of today are much different from those in the past.
Surprisingly, while many of these active adults are moving into smaller homes, they don't want to think of it as that. They want the same amenities they have gotten used to says Michael Hamby, who has sold hundreds of homes in the Annapolis area.
They want open floor plans for entertaining, an outdoor living area in either a courtyard or a patio, high ceilings and modern touches.
When buyers are looking for an active adult community, they are looking at amenities, something that is key to selling the community, he says. Buyers across the active adult communities want walking paths and access to golfing, pools and a built-in social life.
