With an increased demand for this type of living, realtors are targeting the childless demographic with smaller homes and more adult-only communities that are priced for retirees and working adults.
Active adult living is a growing trend in Canada. If you are a baby boomer who finally has the time to pursue those hobbies and passions that you’ve put off until now, then an active adult living community will enable you to fulfill your dreams and goals. These communities are designed to remove the mundane burdens from your life and allow you to relax with a group of people who share your interests and passions. There are a number of benefits over other housing options for people who want to enjoy a lower maintenance lifestyle. You might find that you’re a little happier in an environment that is a bit more sedate, than a noisy, busy, child-friendly neighbourhood. When you choose an adults-only community, your neighbours will be other mature, active adults. You’ll be surrounded by people in the same stage of life as you and who based on the fact that you chose the same community, are likely to have some similar interests.

Today’s seniors are social, on-the-go, and living in an increasingly popular kind of community, adult lifestyle communities, which makes this an important aspect of the Minden & Haliburton Real Estate market
