The way we live and work has changed, drastically for many, in the past 3 years. Going forward, a community amenity needs to be more than a clubhouse with restrooms by the pool.
When deciding where to buy a home, buyers are looking for a community that can meet all of their new needs.
• They have pandemic pets.
• They need a space to work outside the house, but within their communities.
• Even as gyms have opened back up, many who worked out at home have chosen to continue to do so full or part-time.
• As the world opened back up, many found they craved more opportunities to meet and socialize with their neighbors.
At a minimum, today’s amenities need to accommodate all of these needs. We need to create flexibility and anticipate change.
A shift in lifestyle has called upon our industry to rapidly respond. Where do we start?
