IT’S a booming market right now – and it is being led by the Baby Boomers.

And with many now looking to downsize from their large family homes to lower-maintenance houses in lifestyle locations, developers are having to come up with designs to suit this market.

QM Properties, which is developing Sandstone Lakes at Ningi, the mainland gateway to Bribie Island, has announced new homes tailored specifically to the Baby Boomer market.

This means smaller gardens, while maintaining floor space so residents can keep lifelong possessions.
