Among homebuyers who have become empty nesters, Reynolds is seeing a trend of designing new homes with two master bedrooms, one situated in its traditional second-floor location and another on the first floor for when the buyers anticipate they may have trouble climbing stairs.
One buyer Reynolds worked with actually built a first-floor, walk-in closet specially designed for easy conversion into space for an elevator in the future when the owners may not be able to navigate the stairs.
“Buyers are not only putting in features they can enjoy right away,” says Reynolds, “but also ones that will benefit them in the future.”
