South Aurora Neighborhood Attracts Young Professionals

The pandemic has caused many people to reevaluate their lifestyles, including home location and what type of space will best meet their needs moving forward.

More young professionals than ever are working remotely, which means many are asking themselves if living downtown for a quick commute is still a priority. However, that doesn’t mean they’re all ready to move to a large suburban home and take on a yard work commitment.

At Richmond American, we wanted to provide home designs for those in-between buyers by showcasing living spaces for those looking to ditch shared apartment walls and congested parking—without sacrificing urban style and a lower-maintenance life.

Enter the Cityscape™ Collection.

These sleek, three-story homes offer privacy without wall sharing, and many boast rooftop terraces that feature an outdoor entertaining space sans the need for a lawn mower. Plus, they all offer something rare for any downtown residence—a private garage.

“With this collection, you get to purchase a home and take advantage of the opportunity to build equity—without having to make a massive lifestyle shift,” said Brittany Wall, VP of National Sales Operations. “That’s an appealing lifestyle to a lot of buyers.”

Brittany was quick to emphasize the number of amenities around this community. “In addition to the homes, there’s so much to do in the area and it’s growing.”
