As REALTORS we cannot talk about age groups and many other protected classes (as part of the Fair Housing Act). However, you can look at demographics online. Often, people will look at the style of home being sold to determine if the neighborhood might be more attractive to one age group or another. Clearly, those who are retired are more focused on one-level living and first floor master bedrooms than those with young families. Briar Chapel is a large community with many different home styles and sizes that appeals to many different age groups. In the Villas there are a few different builders who are building homes with no yard work, a community garden, low maintenance exteriors, and energy efficiency. I would be happy to talk to you about the choices out there. However, if you are looking for a true retirement community I have some other suggestions for you.
