Zillow Report: Home Buyers Shifting To More Space & Privacy


Typical Forest Street Scene

Report out from Zillow notes a “great reshuffling” as people seek more space. Driven evidently by many factors including the Corona Virus Pandemic, Zillow CEO Rich Barton says “The U.S. real estate market is beginning to show signs of a great reshuffling, as people relocate to homes with more privacy and space.”

We have seen this trend as well here at The Forest, the area’s premier gated community planned exclusively for large estate homes on 3+ acre lots, with a surge of sales in 2020. Currently, there are four more lot sales pending on top of an already very busy year for sales of both lots and homes.

“There are now only nine lots available for sale here,” said the Forest real estate expert Brian Wood of Michael Saunders and Company. “I have been seeing this trend now for several months as more people contact me in search of more space both within and around their homes and there is no better place to have that than right here at The Forest.”

Wood said there are also several new estates in construction now with most of the community’s premier list of custom builders underway with homes for buyers. Those include the first homes at The Forest by new builders Vision Group and E-M Custom Homes.
