Birmingham-Hoover Housing Market Ideal For Millennials

Ross Bridge is an incredible community for so many reasons, one of them being its appeal to a varied range of homebuyers. Everyone from young families to retired Baby Boomers find their place at Ross Bridge, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Recently, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) published an article detailing a study conducted by Builder Online that focuses on Millennials in today’s housing market.  Titled, “8 Top New-Home Markets Luring Millennials”, this definitive list shows where this influential generation is drawn to and their contribution to that particular market.  Not surprisingly, the Birmingham-Hoover housing market ranked second on the list!

It seems that throughout the country, home buying participation from the Millennial generation has been scarce, with Birmingham-Hoover being one of the exceptions. Comparing 2013 to 2012, there has been a 24% increase in Millennial new-home closings in our market alone.  Now, those aged 20 to 34 years old, or the Millennial generation, account for nearly a quarter of our metro’s population.

Birmingham-Hoover’s growth of well built, quality new homes at favorable prices could contribute to the increases in Millennial homebuyers. And, our consistent growth in an inconsistent national housing market is also appealing to buyers of any generation.  When you factor in communities like Ross Bridge, that include endless amenities and world-famous attractions, it’s obvious as to why this area continues to gain popularity!

Ross Bridge features the Ross Bridge Golf Course, a stop on the famous Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, and includes all that one would expect to find in a golf resort community – plus more!  Our amenities range from parks and pools to miles of walking trails and green space.  Craving a world-class spa experience close to home? The stunning Marriott Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa, in the heart of our community, is the perfect place to get away and relax after a day on the golf course.

It’s hard to believe that a community can have all this as well as beautiful new homes, but we deliver!  Our new homes for sale include varying models and designs in three distinct neighborhoods – there is so much to fall in love with at Ross Bridge!

The fact of the matter is that everyone can find a home at Ross Bridge; whether a Baby Boomer, Gen X-er or Millennial, all generations can appreciate the beauty and draw of an expertly-crafted home in a beautiful community.
