Demand High for Urban Infill New Homes
After decades of mass migration to the suburbs to build new homes, many people are returning to the city to live. Today a significant segment of house hunters are looking for quality, energy efficient homes that are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, yoga, dog parks, art, boutiques, and premier cultural centers. This is a national trend known as urban infill development.
According to the 2011 National Realtor’s Survey 58% of respondents indicated a preference “for a neighborhood with a mix of houses and stores and other businesses within an easy walk.” (credit: paloaltoforward.com)
USA Today credits changes in demographics, high gas prices and longer commutes on congested roads for generating more interest in homes in urban settings. David Goldberg with Smart Grown America told USA Today: “For years, there was just one model — homes in auto-dependent suburbs. The development industry finally began to create the kind of in-town products that people were looking for.”
