Life's Biggest Moments: They've flown the coop!

April 3, 2023

Are you an empty nester and living in a home that may be too large for your current needs? Celebrate this milestone moment and next phase in your life by looking for a new construction home that is better suited to your lifestyle. You can right-size to a more manageable and efficient space. A Summit Home is designed with modern features that are more energy-efficient and low-maintenance, which help reduce the cost of utilities and maintenance, and ultimately provide a more comfortable living experience.

Moreover, building your new home offers an opportunity to personalize your living space to your specific needs and preferences. Do you still need room for the grandkids? Would you like your home to be all on one level? Empty nesters can design a home that has the right amount of space, the desired number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and a layout that is functional for their lifestyle. Additionally, Summit communities offer a range of amenities that cater to an active adult lifestyle, such as fitness centers, swimming pools, and walking trails. These amenities can help you stay active, meet new people, and enjoy your retirement years to the fullest. Take Donna and Dennis Yates for example! They built a new home last year and have been loving it ever since. 

Donna and Dennis sat down to talk through their reasons why it was the perfect time in their life to buy a new home. After 35 years in their family home, all four kids had grown, moved out and started lives and families of their own. Dennis had gone through some health issues and they decided that they'd like a home where all the living space was on the main level, but with a walk-out lower level so they could still host big family gatherings for their children and grandchildren. When the Holly Farms community opened, Dennis and Donna went to check out what home sites were available and took lawn chairs so they could sit and experience each view until they found the one they loved. They worked alongside, Nathan, their Personal Builder and made this house their new home. A year later, and they absolutely love their space. They hosted the whole family over the holidays and said the lower level was a perfect place for their grandkids to sprawl out and play.
