As a real estate agent, I think you'd know that what people are willing to buy now drives the market, not what people might want in 20 years.

If a builder put in a subdivision of 1700 sqf ranch homes, they'd go bankrupt. Fortunately, builders did alot of these 30 years ago, and built the homes well enough that they are quite livable today.

So, don't move to an age-restricted neighborhood. But why do you get to decide for those who might NOT like the "energy and fun of children"? Wouldn't you rather that those folks who didn't like kids have a choice not to live around them, rather than being the "get off my lawn" grouch?

As a real estate agent, I have about 10 clients that would LOVE a brand new smaller home with all the upgrades on one level. NOW. Not in 20 years. NOW.
