Millennials Are Finally Moving to the Burbs!
Young couples and empty nesters are choosing HillCrest Village in Southington. Thirty-something millennials are getting married and starting families, and many want the life of their baby-boomer parents — the house in the “burbs” and the SUV.
At age 32, Ashish and FairyDahria were looking for a smaller, more affordable home in a desirable suburb, and they prefer new construction. It was a tough challenge, until they found HillCrest Village in Southington. The new two-story Tiverton model at HillCrest “suited our needs” according to Ashish. It had a walk-in closet, laundry room and drop zone, and at $349,900, it was affordable enough for them to realize their dream of buying a new home.
“We will have a lot of family coming over, so we love the open floor plan and private back yard,” said Ashish. The young couple visit every Saturday to see the construction progress on their new home, and they will be moving to HillCrest in April.
