Did you know that there are nearly 73 million Baby Boomers living in the United States today?
What does that mean? Almost 10,000 turn 65 every day! That’s retirement age and lot of downsizing in the next few years!
Dallas builders have recognized the need for downsized housing and are responding with new, downsized communities. Some of these communities are part of master-planned communities which are looking to cater generations of families who can enjoy living in the same area. Other communities are individual neighborhoods. Bottom line, whatever your downsize dream space might be, its out there!
