For Dave and Tammy Flanders, finding a right-size, mid-price home in the Lakes Region was as much a dream come true as it was a stroke of luck. It wasn’t what they originally envisioned.
The couple, with grown children and eager to downsize, sold their 1,400-square-foot ranch-style house in Concord within a day of listing it in October. Then they searched for almost three months for a condo or mobile home.
