NEW CONSTRUCTION COMMUNITIES FOR THE Americans that are getting older AND are still active and healthy!

by Builder Trade In Program Mar, 27

As baby boomers come into their 50s, 60s and 70s, the country faces big changes. By 2040, the number of Americans 65 or older will expand to more than 79 million—up from just 40 million in 2010.

NAHB forecasts that the share of households headed by someone age 55+ will increase through 2019 to account for more than 45% of all U.S. households. These ever-growing ranks of empty-nesters, new retirees, grandparents and active seniors create an opportunity for builders across the country to meet the special needs and preferences of 50+ buyers looking to relocate, downsize their homes or find a new senior-friendly community.

The New Home for 2015

Design trends in the new construction home market have been evolving over the last few years but some trends remain steadfast such as the demand for open living spaces which is expected to grow into the foreseeable future.  But one of the most significant changes in new home design is that homes are actually getting smaller according to a survey by the NAHB.  New single family homes are expected to be about 10 percent smaller in size with the average size to be approximately 2,152 square feet. The reasons for this dramatic change is that new home buyers are focusing on their finances and want lower heating and cooling costs.  The baby boomer generation no longer requires huge amounts of space.


FHA does the Right Thing-Finally

by Builder Trade In Program Feb, 20

If there was ever a time to applaud the government and FHA (Federal Housing Administration) it is now. After making record profits from the MIP insurance increases which nearly doubled, FHA decided to cut those fees by 50%. The change has not only increased the number of FHA originations but also increased the number of refinances, which increases bottom line profit.
