    In my area west of Boston the majority of home buyers tell me they do not want ranch or split-level homes. Colonial is still the house style of choice. Over 55/seniors would like condominiums that are ranch-style/one level living but that is not what builders built here. Land is too expensive so they built townhouses with first-floor masters and second floors that are good for guests but become obsolete when the home-owner cannot deal with stairs anymore.
