Some of the Summit County real estate properties built in the past decade are most definitely catering to the Boomers. Boomers are not necessarily looking for homes with built-in disability features, but they are often looking for homes they could live in for the rest of their lives, “aging in-place,” without having to necessarily move to a senior-only communities. So many of the Summit County homes for sale until recently have all been multi -level. That means homes with level-in entrances (no stairs to the front door), single story layouts and low-maintenance landscaping have a massive new audience attracted to these features which would otherwise not warrant a mention in a home’s marketing, especially if homes near your listing tend to have loads of stairs or other features that are difficult for people to navigate as they age. For years, much of Summit Count real estate did not have a master suite on the main floor which meant either going up or down to the bedrooms. We are beginning to see more Summit County homes that have the master suite on the main living level.
Similarly, the movement toward aging-in-place has caused many more families to move aging relatives in with them, versus moving them out to retirement homes. These extended families often are looking for homes with a very well-appointed “mother-in-law” or “outlaw” units or a second master suite located on the home’s ground floor. Once again, here in the Summit County real estate market we are seeing more new homes that include this type of extended family unit.
