If you are looking for single story living in !city !state but are not quite ready to give up a larger and private back yard, and you are not ready or willing to turn over all of your yard and exterior maintenance to a patio or cluster home community and pay their high HOA fees, then a traditional single story ranch style home may be your best alternative. However, especially for newer homes in !city, or anywhere in !state, this style of home is not as common as it may be in other parts of the country, or as they were decades ago, when land was much cheaper and urban sprawl was not as much an issue. While new home builders are starting to recognize these needs, they are still struggling to keep up with the demand for new !proptype_lc.
All !proptype_lc in !city !state are presumed to have the master bedroom on the main floor. Another alternative for some extended families where one or more members may need to limit most of their activities to a single floor, is that some non-ranch style homes in !city may have other bedrooms on the main level, with a shared 3/4 or full bath also on the main level. These are not easily identified, so you would just need to look at some homes, or call me to discuss other criteria you may be able to use to narrow your !city !proptype_lc search results.
