Today in Cincinnati, many people plan for the future with luxury lifestyle homes designed for aging in place.
In fact, of Generation X Homebuyers (Ages 37-52), 62% are looking to upgrade or buy a “forever” home. Also, buyers in the Boomer age group (over age 53), are most likely to own their homes for 20 years. That’s the longest period of any of the age groups.
In other words, when looking for a luxury lifestyle home to help you age in place gracefully, it is important to get it right.
