A major trend in today’s housing market has seen many baby boomers downsize from their large, empty family homes to smaller abodes. They still have very active lifestyles and want to travel and relax, so who needs all those extra rooms once the kids have moved out?
But giving up space doesn’t mean letting go of comfort—boomers want the same quality of life with less of the hassle. That’s where lock-and-leave communities come in.
Created out of a demand for an easier way of living pre- and post-retirement, lock-and-leave dwellings are low maintenance homes that make it easy to pack your bags and head out the door knowing that everything is taken care of.
In Florida, Boomers are flocking to smaller spaces in retirement, provided the location is still in the middle of the action. It’s part of a Baby Boomer downsizing that is becoming a niche industry. At first there may be hesitation about living in a residence smaller than their current home but what attracts them, in large part, are the locations of the developments.
They are looking to do more outside their homes, to enjoy downtown and waterfront activities. They don’t want to be gardening and working on the lawns on the weekend. They want to be surrounded by the relaxed waterfront lifestyle, and a sense of permanent vacation…Beautiful blue skies, swaying palm trees, and teasing your friends up north while they shovel snow.
With the chances to own a new home directly on the water in Florida diminishing every day, Peninsula on the Intracoastal represents both a unique and rare opportunity.
