When I was in new home sales, an important component was the development of homes and areas for what is called "Adult Lifestyle". For me, this was primarily one floor bungalows on small lots, sometimes with amenities like bike paths, a rec centre, close to shopping, doctors, and a hospital. It was a pleasure to help with the design of the perfect home, hopefully one that would serve an individual or a couple until they were ready for assisted living.
In resale, I consider the information amassed as a result of this training to be invaluable. Several of my current listings are in resort towns, areas which are really popular for any clients looking for a lifestyle change. Port Stanley in particular holds enormous appeal to the person looking not only to downsize, but to retire to an area that is rich in opportunities for the new retiree. Because of it's size, almost everything is within walking distance. The beach, the theatre, the doctor's office, restaurants, and shopping are all concentrated into a small downtown area. The "ebb and flo" of this beautiful village is very casual, very laid back, and perfectly suited to anyone looking to do a downshift. I love this kind of client, and certainly hope my resume speaks for itself. I promise to work hard, to understand everything you are looking for, what makes "you tick", and find the perfect property that checks all your boxes.
