PRLog - Jan. 7, 2013 - ATLANTA -- Many baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, are reaching retirement age. According to a MSN article, “How boomers will change housing market,” this group is unlike prior generations and does not want to spend their golden years in nursing homes. Instead, they want easier-to-maintain housing near friends, families, work, transportation and recreation. This is where Windsong Properties comes in. The builder offers exclusive, active adult ranch homes in sought-after metro Atlanta communities.
“This generation is healthier and more active than ever,” stated Steve Romeyn, co-owner of Windsong Properties. “As an active adult myself, I make sure our communities provide everything our buyers want, need and will need in the future. That way, residents can age in place.”
Priced from the $200,000s, communities include Windsong at Seven-Hills in Dallas, Bel-Aire in Powder Springs and Garden Street in Woodstock.
Exterior and interior appointments offer superior style and accessibility. Homes feature courtyards, walking chair front porches, step-free entrances, wider doorways, lever handles, open great rooms, large kitchens, elegant dining rooms, flex spaces, master on the main suites, oversized closets, private casitas and terraces per plan. All homes are low maintenance and many are complete with energy saving features, such as efficient heating and air, double pane vinyl low E glass windows, programmable thermostats and quick recovery 40-gallon gas water heaters.
Besides gorgeous homes, Windsong’s communities have convenient locations. Windsong at Seven-Hills is minutes from local shops, dining, Lake Allatoona and the North Georgia Mountains. Bel-Aire is located off Macland Rd. in West Cobb. Shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities are all nearby. Lastly, Garden Street is walking distance to downtown Woodstock. Stroll to restaurants, shops, the theatre or even the park.
Maintain an active lifestyle with amazing community amenities. These include walkable streets, nature trails, state-of-the art clubhouses with exercise rooms and kitchens, zero-entry pools and play area for the grandchildren.
With construction started on 27 new homes throughout its three communities, Windsong Properties is a prime example of how boomers are changing the housing market.
