Homeowners are right sizing

Remember the day when “bigger was always better”? Homeowners are finding that it’s no longer the situation. Homeowners have found themselves in homes that are large in housing developments that are large surrounded by amenities that are too crowded. Or as one homeowner put it a Minneapolis Star Tribune article put it…

“You go to the basketball court, and you can’t even get in,” she said. “It’s almost like going on vacation when it’s really busy — like going to Six Flags and standing in line forever, but this is where we live, we’re just one of the many.”

So there is a shift towards smaller homes in smaller developments, often closer to the metro areas – places where you can get to know all of your neighbors and where residents don’t need to worry about all of the units selling out.
