Empty Nest BoomJune 17, 2013
Adults born between 1946 and 1964 are re-defining the way that people think of retirement these days. Gone are the days when people reached 65 and stopped being active. Today’s population is working past 65 and enjoying more active, more leisure filled time. Instead of the cliché of retiring to the front porch or the easy chair, they’re using the opportunity of becoming “empty nesters” to look into a variety of opportunities, including buying a different type of house, one that’s on a golf course, luxury condominiums, or even lofts with home gyms.
Now that the kids are grown and off to college or out of college and on their own, they’re selling their homes and looking for something that will reflect their new, different lifestyle and finding it in many places. With more than 78 million baby boomers living in the United State, there are a large percentage of them looking forward to changing or maintaining their active lifestyle during the next phase of their lives. If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, definitely take this lively group of potential buyers into consideration.
