Life is more fast-paced than it has ever been. No longer are there days of leaving your work at the office; or leaving your family life at home for that matter. We update our Facebook statuses, twit on what’s happening and blog about our interests. Technology has changed our lifestyle in many ways. Whether you are young or old, tech savvy or from a different generation that didn’t grow up surrounded by all this technology, you are somehow affected by this change to our routines. Technology demands that many of us be on point and current at any moment.
Another thing that changes before our very eyes is our life. We all ask ourselves “Where did the time just go?” Our lifestyle is what defines us. And the more comfortable and peaceful we are, the happier we tend to be. Maybe the single most important aspect to having a happy and healthy lifestyle is our home. As our lives and needs change, so should our homes change to meet our new lifestyles.
The Michaels Group is one company that is dedicated to building homes that meet these ever-changing lifestyles. For three generations they have been custom-designing homes throughout the North Country to provide comfort and lasting value like the homes at Hiland Crossings. Just down from Hiland Golf Club, these lavish homes feature first floor master suites, an abundance of features, and dramatic open designs; but best of all – NO MAINTENANCE! Starting in late 2011, this neighborhood has recognized a surge in sales. The reason? Lifestyle changes.
“Our homeowners are mostly local residents who are looking for a more carefree lifestyle. They want to scale back on size, but scale up on amenities like granite, hardwood floors and the dramatic open designs these homes offer”, says Director of Sales and Marketing Cindy Quade. “It’s wonderful that we are able to offer this type of lifestyle and maintain a strong value. This has allowed our local buyers to stay in the area and get what they want in a new home without feeling like they are sacrificing or overpaying”.
“There is a strong market for this type of lifestyle and The Michaels Group has perfected it. They have established hundreds of maintenance-free neighborhoods, and that experience shows in how well these neighborhoods look even years later.”
The Michaels Group offers a variety of neighborhoods and lifestyles throughout Glens Falls and Queensbury. To learn about more area neighborhoods by TMG, visit www.michaelsgroup.com or call Cindy Quade 376-2965.
