Baby Boomers finding long-term nesting in Laneways and Coachhomes in Vancouver!

According to a new Ipsos poll, 93% of Canadian Seniors feel it is important to stay in the homes they currently own into their retirement years.   There is comfort in the familiar and many of these long-term residents have carved out a wonderful place within the community they have lived in for many years.  However, many empty nesters or even recently widowed residents suddenly find themselves having too much home for their needs but don’t want to lose the community they have known for so long.  This is where we see Homes with Laneways homes or Vancouver Coach homes for sale as viable options to help transition seniors into a comfortable retirement while still maintaining the security of the area they know and love.

In some cases, retiree’s can explore building a laneway home on their already existing property and then moving into the laneway for retirement, thus providing an excellent solution to staying close to home while also providing monetary relief by way of sale of their larger resident or renting the Home out. 

In another scenario, building a Coachhome for sale on your property could offer a solution for retiree’s in your community that want to be homeowners within their own communities, but on a smaller scale than their existing larger detached home.  By building a Coachhome for sale you are giving opportunity for the sizable desirability that many seniors are hoping to settle into, allowing them opportunity to continue to be homeowners, providing yourself with community focused tenants and having your hand in the market as well.

As we quickly approach the retirement of so many Baby Boomers in Vancouver we can see how Homes with Laneway homes or Coachhomes for sale are essential options for this ever-growing group of people within our community.
