This year, our founder and president, Roger Glover III, was honored to share his experience and expertise in homebuilding for the active adult homebuyer at the 2016 International Builder Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The International Builder Show (IBS), attracts thousands of home builders and building professionals across the globe, who come together to share their knowledge and services within the housing industry.
This first of Roger’s presentations was all about the right home design “Designing for the 55+ Market: Your Top 20 Questions Answered.” In this session he and the panelists shared their knowledge of the ideal 55+ resort-style living community, interior design trends and home features for aging in home, amongst other in-demand features and products. Attendees discovered how to evoke a strong sense of community in their developments and give buyers the amenities that are most important.
In the next session, “Identifying 55+ Housing Opportunities in Your Marketplace”, a panel of 55+ community builders addressed the necessary strategies during their years of successful active adult developments. From de
mographic data, to buyer profiles, to evaluation tools, attendees learned everything they needed to know to successfully launch and grow a 55+ development.
