Renting for Baby Boomers With The Metropolitan at Village

Apartment Home Community Living

Designing Spaces

As the Baby Boomer generation begins to enter retirement or become empty nesters, many of these homeowners are looking to downsize. They don’t want the upkeep of a big yard and house. Senior housing has evolved quite a bit over the past decade. In many ways, this group is looking for the same experience as that of their Millennial children—they want to live in an all-inclusive place where they don’t have to worry about maintaining a home. For young professionals, married couples without children and empty-nesters in particular, the freedom, flexibility and diverse set of options make renting an apartment home the right choice for their desired lifestyle. Designing Spaces visits The Metropolitan at Village at Leesburg, Virginia to see how baby boomers are enjoying an active new lifestyle as part of an apartment community.


Apartment Renting - The New Buying for Boomers?

If you are a married couple without children, a Baby Boomer or Empty-Nester, you may be at a different stage in life, looking to simplify

If you are a young couple or raising a family then you may be pursuing the American Dream with buying your first home, or upgrading to a larger home.

If you are a young professional, married couple without children, a Baby Boomer or Empty-Nester on the other hand, you may be at a different stage in life, looking to simplify – and have things taken care of for you!

Did you know that rental housing has evolved over the past few years? There are many choices now for all-inclusive living in apartment communities.

Think of all the benefits of renting an apartment home:

• Shedding the burden and responsibility of home ownership
• No upkeep of big yard
• No worries about maintenance
• Financial-no coming up with a down payment
• Convenience to shopping, dining, entertainment
• Walking distance to cultural activities
• Sense of community
• Environment offers safety and security as top priority
• Ability to “age in place”
