Boomers hot for area ranch-style homes
Baby boomers are on the move in Chicago’s suburbs, downsizing from two-story colonials and buying one-floor, single-family units, according to an article by Jean Murphy in the Daily Herald’s Feb. 14 edition. Ranch-style home built in the 1950s and 1960s are in high demand with baby boomers and empty-nesters between the ages of 45 and 64, according to the report. The baby boomers are seeking the convenience of a one-floor structure and the privacy of a single-family home. While the baby boomers seemed focused on existing housing stock, the good news is they typically conduct large-scale renovation of the homes they purchase, seeking open kitchens, larger master bedrooms and family rooms. Many also add exercise areas or hobby spaces, according to the article.
