I recently listed a house in a 55 and older community, Windsor Lakes, in The Woodlands and it just went under contract.  These communities are very appealing to the aging baby boomer population.  According to the National Association of Home Builders, the most important design features for 55+ Buyers are:

10.  Bigger Bathrooms

9.  Attached Garage

8.  Porch

7.  Private Patio

6.  Master Bedroom on 1st Floor

5.  Easy-to-Use Thermostat

4.  Garage Door Opener

3.  Windows that Open Easily

2.  Storage Space

1.  Washer/Dryer in the Unit
