Quality of Life- The ASHEVILLE Post50 Home

For many Post-50 People, the third phase of life (the years after retirement from the standard work environment) is very different from expectations and the experiences of earlier generations. Today's Post-50-People are invested in continuing quality of life, considering what is most important to an individual and also family stakeholders, and the larger community. This is evident in the real estate market- a trend is at hand.

Creative Retirement Tell Us- What is Important to You?



Let us know what choices and/or actions make sense to you as you consider a lifelong home- . Will it be one that has been designed  for all who live there over the years - regardless of age or physical ability? Do you desirre a feathered nest for aging-in-place but have concluded it need not be huge?  Would you like to incorporate any number of   Universal Design Elements?  And is it important to you to take into account "going stairless"-   Mainfloor Living Spaces?

 As “boomers” and older adults create a mental picture of the future, there may be the smiling faces of those we love. There may be the sounds of laughter of grandparents, kids, and grand-kids. There may be an herb garden on the deck, or we might find an heirloom apple orchard just around the corner.  (The juice from those apples makes you want to live right in the orchard.) A place where people can choose to live among caring neighbors, sharing their inspiration and enthusiasm, a natural neighborhood in a sustainable community might be on your list. Or a cottage small  painted yellow and still very “green”.

Here in Asheville, we are happy to talk with you about your choices. Drop us an email. We can set up a time to start the conversation.
