Who lives in new home communities? The answer might surprise you. In the past, it was retirees who flocked to these types of communities. But younger homebuyers soon discovered the allure of living in neighborhoods specifically designed around parks, schools, and amenities; the benefit of easy access to recreation and activities; and the sense of community that comes with neighbors of all ages.
And that’s who lives in Union Park by Hillwood in Little Elm, TX– people of all ages. Active adults live out their well-deserved retirement here. Babies are born here. Growing families raise their children here. And everyone enjoys the benefits that occur with intergenerational connections.
People love living in new-home communities like Union Park. So much so that they stay even when their needs and families change. We often see homeowners (who have outgrown the entry-level home they fell in love with as first-time buyers at Union Park) purchase a larger, move-up home down the street. We commonly see empty nesters choose to downsize into a smaller home within the neighborhood so they can maintain their connections with friends and neighbors. All these homeowners love the vibrant life they’ve created in our thriving lifestyle community and can’t imagine leaving.
