A survey by the Nat'l Association ofHomebuilders and the Metlife Mature Market Institute found that consumers in the 55 to 64 age group have similar housing preferences as those over the age 65.
The consumers in the younger age group want more technology features in their home, while those in the older group prefer a ranch style floor plan or a master bedroom on the first floor.
The survey found that the 55-64 age group look for home maintenance and repair services to be a part of their next home purchase, including typical associated services of older homeowners such as housekeeping, onsite health care and transportation.
Fewer younger aged consumers expressed a desire for organized social activities long though to be of value to this group.
I am curious where do you stand in relation to this survey. Do you agree? Disagree? have other items more important? leave a comment let me know.
