Shadow Wood at the Brooks Real Estate News | November 2015

It is not just the cold winters driving northerners to look for Shadow Wood real estate, there are other factors that are kicking in now. In addition to the dwindling inventory of marketed Shadow Wood real estate covered here recently, Lee county is preparing for a 70-percent population increase expected by 2040; that’s an incredible expected growth spurt. Who do you suppose will lead the migration? Consider the number of Baby Boomers who are in the process of retiring. During the last four years, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers retire every day; this will continue for the next 15 years.
