Now That You're an Empty Nester Do You Need a Single-Story Home?

Do You Need a Single-Story Home? As parents, we all come to the point where the kids have all grown and left the nest. so you may be thinking do I need a single-story home or do I need a multiple Story Home?

Hi, I am Krista Mashore with Homes By Krista and eXp Realty.  For some empty nesters, owning a two-story home with extra bedrooms is no longer a necessity. It might be a good time to sell your house and RIGHTSIZE to a single-story home as you move into your golden years.
Purchasing a one-story home may check all the boxes and give you long-term benefits. And if you are wondering if there are enough one-story homes available you will be  glad to learn that
the number of single-story homes being built today has risen, improving your odds of finding the perfect home for your changing needs. 

According to the National Association of Homebuilders “Nationwide the share of new homes with two or more stories fell from 53% in 2018 to 52% in 2019, while the share of new homes with one story grew from 47% to 48%” So what are all the benefits of buying a one-story home and why are they so popular with the older generation?
#1 – They are energy efficient and easier to heat and cool than two stories #2 – They are easier to maintain – generally cleaning requires less effort #3 – They are accessible for everyone regardless of whether young children or seniors #4 – And they usually hold well in regards to resale value as they are often in higher demand. If you are thinking of downsizing into that perfect one-story home, let’s connect so I can help you make that opportunity a reality.
