Why Single Parents Are Choosing To Downsize to Smaller Lots In Master Planned Communities

According to 2016 Census data, there has been a substantial increase in the number of single parents heading to master planned communities. In fact, according to data, the number of single adults with children living in communities between 2011 and 2016 increased by 56 per cent nationally.

Widowed, divorced and separated parents now make up a significant number of residents who have taken advantage of the influx of master planned communities over the last several years and downsized from the family home, for both lifestyle and affordability reasons.

The research shows that most single parents find living in master planned communities works for them financially and offers them a lifestyle choice. In addition, unlike buying a home outside of a community, the home can also provide social benefits to both the parent and the child, whilst combating affordability issues seen with single parents.

As a single parent, moving to a masterplan community after a major event such as death, divorce or illness, can allow the individuals involved the opportunity to move from a big home to a smaller property in a location that suits them.

Furthermore, widowed, divorced or separated parents can also embrace the benefits of a community lifestyle and they take comfort from knowing they have neighbours close by, which makes them feel safe.

Not to mention the amenities, parks and playgrounds, which as a single parent, can be far easier to access within this type of environment.
