Find 55+ Builders and Real Estate Agents

It's important to find the right 55+ builders & agents when choosing your home. A senior home is not your typical house because it requires special considerations in terms of layout and design. Many seniors want to live out their life at home, which has sprung forth a movement known as aging-in-place. According to a 2010 study conducted by AARP, nearly 90% of seniors want to stay at home as long as possible which requires builders to design the proper home that meets the needs of the senior now as well as in the years to come.

55+ builders & agents understand the unique needs of seniors because of their experience and specialized training. The most popular age-in-place features are wider doorways (36 inches) to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers according to a recent survey. Other popular design features include stepless entry ways, four-foot wide hallways, shower seating and stepless shower access.

Seniors can choose to build or move into a home with these features or remodel their existing home. Senior remodels are the most common way to alter the home. 55+ builders and agents say many seniors make the mistake of waiting until an acute injury or illness occurs before remodeling. They say it’s best to start planning while healthy in order to avoid these stressful occurrences.

Senior homebuilders and agents will help you to find or build the right home or assist you with remodeling your existing home to include important features without making your home feel or look like a hospital. Finding the right agent will save you a lot of time and money.
