In recent years there have been an increasing number of new communities that feature townhomes with the master bedroom located on the main floor. This style of living is offers some one of a kind benefits that make this so sought after.
Master-on-main is the perfect compromise for a buyer who is looking for the feel of a single-family home without the stairs and maintenance, but are not yet ready to make the switch to condo living. With the number of baby boomers growing at a rapid pace, there is a high demand for the accessible living that townhomes with master-on-main provides. What may come is a surprise is that this concept of home is no longer just drawing in a downsizer demographic. Under-45 executives who are too busy with work to maintain a single family home, but are still looking for separation from guests and kids, find this to be an ideal option.
This concept has been a large drawing factor to bring buyers over the bridge into the Fraser Valley. In order to make the master-on-main concept work, it requires more density. For example, a community in Langley had the option either build 100 traditional townhomes or 59 master-on-main townhomes based on the size of the land. With the high prices of land as you move closer to Vancouver, giving up this density is not an option. That means that buyers are happy to move into the Fraser Valley to obtain this unique style of home.
Keep an eye out for this growing trend throughout the Fraser Valley. This style of home may just be the perfect balance you are looking for!
