Real Estate in St Augustine Fl – Aging in Place

Real Estate Agent with St. Augustine Realty

When thinking about real estate in St Augustine Fl, customers typically think about location (proximity to the beach, shopping, schools, commute to the work place, etc.).  They may also be thinking about what the surrounding community offers, and of course they will have a ‘must have’ list of what the house should have.  But what about the need or desire to age in place?  Meaning the next time they purchase real estate in St Augustine Fl, would be the last purchase of real estate in St Augustine Fl

I read an article recently about just that – Aging in Place.   As the baby boomers age, there is more of a desire to live in their homes as independently as they can for as long as possible.  Keeping that in mind designers and architects alike are creating homes that will make it easier to do everyday tasks.  For instance, kitchens are now being designed to keep items at waist level, and bathrooms are being designed to remove the need to step over or down into a shower area. Another key component to this style of design is putting the master bedroom suite on the 1st floor.  That’s where real estate in St Augustine Fl really has leg up.  Why?

We all know that when people get ready to retire, especially those relocating from the north to the south, and by south, I mean Florida.  A very common feature you will find in real estate in St Augustine Fl is that master bedrooms are typically located on the 1st floor with the ease of living in mind.

I’ve included a YouTube video entitled ‘Aging in Place’ and it reviews some of the kitchen and bath features.  I hope you enjoy it!
