CNBC’s Diana Olick takes us to a Toll Brothers active adult community in Broomfield, Colo. and explores why more people are looking to move into communities that feature “lifestyle amenities.”
Jeff and Sharon Kay Brown are not retired yet, but they moved into the active adult community in Broomfield because they wanted a social atmosphere with people their own age, but they didn't want to skimp on the luxuries. "Because this is it. This is the last house you're going to have. You gotta get what you want," said Sharon, who is 56 and works from home.
And what they get is a comfortable lifestyle. "It's the social aspect of knowing your neighbors, walking down the street with a glass of wine at 5 o'clock and saying hi and talking to people that maybe were in your tennis group that morning," said Mark Bailey, division president for Toll Brothers' active adult communities.
