I'm definitely being tasked by 65+ clients with single family homes.

And prices did spike for almost 7 years. But, it's correction time.

I don't know where you live Tony but single level homes in our area go quicker and for more money. New home subdivisions, if they could do it, would have as the majority single level homes.

We have always had a shortage of one story homes in my market and they always sell quickly with or without baby boomers and sell for more on a per square foot basis than two story homes. I'm an early baby boomer (born before 1950) and I live in a 2-story home and have no intention of downsizing or looking only for a one-story for a long time.

One story homes are in demand. Not building enough of them in our market. Land to build on is too expensive. Builders would rather build two story homes on small lots to maximize profit. New townhomes are about $1Mil. Nice one story 3 bedroom in my neighborhood just sold quickly for $1,125,000.

There is a great demand in Florida for single level living.

Unfortunately, the available inventory is so low the result is a statistically small number. The boomer prefer single level. The Milli prefer single level. New families prefer single level. Everyone PREFERS single level but their economics compel the purchase of a townhouse.

There has been a noticeable increase in 1 levels, one levels with lofts, and 1 levels on full basements in this area. Even on 2-3 story homes, interest has increased in main level master bedrooms, wider doorways, less steps, and conveniences for elderly and handicapped. I've even seen wider garages to allow for wheelchairs to get out of their vehicles and into their home.
