Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate launches lifestyle search

Survey: At least 1 in 5 homeowners say their community doesn't fit their lifestyle

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC has launched a lifestyle search option on its website, the Realogy subsidiary announced today.

A survey released in conjunction with the launch also found that 1 in 5 homeowners have moved or would like to because their community doesn’t fit their lifestyle.

The online survey was conducted between April 20-29, 2011, and received 1,085 responses. About 84 percent of survey participants identified themselves as homeowners and an additional 10 percent said they planned to purchase a home within the next three years.

The survey was conducted in collaboration with Meredith Corp., which licensed the Better Homes and Gardens name to the real estate franchise network.
