In the suburb of 40,000 that I used to live in a developer bought up land behind a shopping center to build a walkable community.
The quaint idea of walking to the grocery, Starbucks, etc. Keeping green and all that. The homes were so pricey that it took 2 incomes and no woman working 40+ hrs a week and 3 littles ones is going to walk to the grocery to lug home 12 bags on Saturday. That said, can they come home to plant, weed, take care of aimals, tend bees, etc?
My kids while out on their own can land back with me at any time so I keep that in mind.
ITA, not much on the market here, either. I decided to buy a parcel and build something modest. In over my head, for sure but why not?
