Edgier Amenities Appeal to Today’s Active Adult Homebuyers

Posted on: March 23rd, 2017

In Michele Lerner’s recent article in NewHomeSource, “55-Plus Homebuyers Want Edgier Amenities,” she concludes that today’s 55+ communities “… look almost nothing like the retirement communities of a few decades ago.” Active adult home buyers look for edgier amenities and different experiences when they move to their new home in an active adult community.

The article notes: “Today’s over-55 population embraces fitness and relishes opportunities to be active outside.”

Jim Chapman, president of Jim Chapman Communities and leading 55+ building industry expert, is quoted extensively throughout the story. He highlights the importance of walking trails and community gardens to the home buyers who are considering a move to his new 55+ Atlanta-area neighborhoods like Sweet Briar Farms, The Overlook at Old Atlanta and Nestledown Farm.

“We listen to our clients and incorporate thoughtful design solutions in our homes and our amenities. For instance, we found that building a potting shed with a bathroom near the community’s garden plots is much appreciated by the residents, since these plots are often located in park-like areas away from the homes,” says Jim.

At Jim Chapman Communities, we continue to come up with many different, creative and fun options and amenities to our buyers from all over the Southeast.
