Survey Focuses on Two Generations of Buyers
I read an article recently which was a summary of a Survey taken of two groups of individuals regarding their Buying Preferences and Regional Differences.The two groups were the Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1965 and their children ( the Milleniums) born between the years of 1972 and 1992. The results were very interesting.
Although, the criteria is still Location Location Location, today more than ever before the buyers surveyed are concentrating on Lifestyle Choices to pick their locations. This is why Chatham-Kent is the ideal location for the Baby Boomers or for the Milleniums as well. If you read my blog you know that I am always reporting on all the Events, Happenings and Choice properties for sale in this great Affordable Lifestyle Community.
The Boomers are often downsizing, retiring or finding themselves to be empty nesters and are looking for alternate living choices. They want affordablility, a criteria that many recent articles have reported. They do not, however, want to be in a community which is isolated or devoid of activities. They may be cutting back but they are far from ready to sit home and let life pass them by. With Chatham-Kent's proximity to cities such as London, Ontario, Toronto and even Detroit and the United States, it is an ideal choice. Often the accessibility to Major Health Centres are a concern and with London Health Sciences Centre just one hour away, we certainly have that covered.Time is very important to them and they want to spend their time on leisure activities not on home maintenance.
The Millenniums (an estimated 9.1 million of them) on the other hand are also looking to eliminate their commutes, and find an area that gives them time to enjoy life, raise their families and spend time on the important things in life! They are often chosing condo living in the larger centres or moderate priced homes in areas like Chatham-Kent. Time is also very important to this generation and often they not interested in updating their new home purchase or renovating.
These survey results point out to two very important plus' that Chatham-Kent has to offer. We are a thriving community with activities which are diverse and targeting all ages. We are an Affordable Lifestyle Community with close proximity to several Resort Locations along Lake Erie or Lake St. Clair, perfect for family fun or adult activities.
