As DC Ages, Baby Boomers Look for Homes in Shenandoah Valley

From our friends at Trilogy at Lake Frederick...

Trilogy® at Lake Frederick is a Premier 55+ Community Just 90 Minutes Away

As Baby Boomers in the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area hit retirement age, many are looking to nearby Northern Virginia for their next home, and finding Trilogy® at Lake Frederick by Shea Homes® as a great option. Trilogy® by Shea Homes, a national active lifestyle communities builder, has been recognized as America’s Most Trusted® Active Adult Resort Builder by Lifestory Research for the fifth consecutive year.

“A lot of people in the Mid-Atlantic region are looking for their next step, and they don’t want to move far away from their friends and family,” said Jason King, general manager of Shea Homes, the parent company of Trilogy. “Lake Frederick is a perfect spot for people who want something different, but not distant.”

Located just an hour and a half from the nation’s capital, the upscale resort-style community offers amenities such as the 36,000 sq. ft. Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club, Region’s 117 farm-to-table restaurant, hiking and biking trails, and views of the Shenandoah Valley and the picturesque 117-acre Lake Frederick.

The location for Trilogy’s 55+ community was chosen in part due to its closeness to the Washington area, where more than one in five residents are over the age of 55, according to 2015 Census estimates.

Starting in 2011, roughly 10,000 Baby Boomers hit retirement age of 65 every single day, a trend that will continue until 2030, according to data from the Pew Research Center. But they aren’t looking to retire the same way that previous generations did, with many saying they hope to continue working and maintaining active lifestyles as they age. In fact, the National Association of Home Builders 55+ Housing Market Index, a survey of builder confidence in the marketplace, has remained positive in 2016, continuing a strong streak in recent quarters.

 “Trilogy at Lake Frederick is perfect for adults who want a change of scenery but not a change of pace,” added King. “Whether it’s keeping fit in our athletic center or taking classes at our club or going for a bike ride, residents can find a lot of ways to stay active after the kids have left home.”
