Life stages—not age—define today’s buyer. This advanced session will focus on three life stages while dissecting a floor plan with options that can span all three. An architect and interior designer will review a floor plan and design finishes, room by room, to demonstrate how creative strategy early in the process can help builders appeal to the needs and desires of the buyer segments while ensuring affordability at every life stage.
