Part 3: 2020 Homebuying Trends - Master-Planned Migration
Location, Location: Migration to Master-Planned
The market is witnessing an exodus from urban downtowns to the fresh air and outdoors of suburbia. But “more room” doesn’t necessarily mean “less connection.” In fact, master-planned communities offer heightened allure because of their robust social networks. Pocket parks and walking trails afford residents access to their neighbors or families that may live in the same community. Porches allow socializing from a distance, and a plethora of outdoor amenities foster activity and well-being.
Jim and Ann Proper spent several years visiting their children and grandchildren in Briar Chapel. The “moving trend” to Briar Chapel began with Jim and Ann’s niece and nephew, followed by their daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Corey Rosso. When the family clan in Briar Chapel grew to include another nephew and his wife, Jim and Ann couldn’t resist any longer. After a fulfilling 30+-year career in the public-school system, the Propers found their forever home in the welcoming streets and lush parks of Briar Chapel.
“Having family so close is amazing,” said Amy. “It’s not lost on me how lucky we are to have that camaraderie and support. We grab each other’s groceries while we’re at the store, or my parents are able to provide babysitting in a pinch. I believe in the concept that it takes a village to raise a family … and we’re lucky that folks in our village live right here in Briar Chapel.”
