Austin Construction and Boomer Consulting have partnered together to design and build retirement communities that will meet the needs of the aging population in the rural regions of the country. During the design process we focused on affordability to increase our consumer base while still offering the amenities that will give the residents a great quality of life. We have developed design and building practices that we will be able to easily adapt from one rural market to another, including how to meet the labor demands of our projects in markets that lack local labor. The designs can also be adapted for student housing, vacation homes, and any other projects that might require affordable housing communities.
In our travels throughout rural Oklahoma we have spoken with many local communities and their governing officials who have expressed a desperate need and desire for this type of development in their communities. The residents of rural Oklahoma are tired of seeing a valued and important part of their community move away to retirement communities in urban centers. According to the Harvard Gazette, the number of people 50 and over in the United Sates is expected to increase by 70% to 133 million by 2030. The country is not meeting the current demand for affordable senior housing and is wholly unprepared for future demands.
Due to the boom in rural industries, such as the wind electric farms in western Oklahoma, communities have also expressed a need for affordable housing communities to meet their current housing shortages. The construction industry has yet to tap into this burgeoning market, but we are at the forefront of this market and poised to construct many projects.
We at Austin Construction and Boomer Consulting have created the design, the method, and developed client contacts that are ready to move forward on planning with construction soon to follow. All we need are investors who are ready to back a project that is needed and desired by rural communities, that has been priced to be affordable to those communities and their residents, and rewards the investor handsomely for their investment into this overlooked need and market.
