Boomers Bullish on Age-Limited Havens
Over half of all "homeowners aged 45 to 54, and nearly 60 percent of homeowners aged 55 to 64, rated themselves either 'likely' or 'very likely' to buy a vacation, investment or new primary home sometime in the coming 60 months," columnist Ken Harney reports.
"Roughly 49 percent of owners 55 years and older say they are likely to move into some form of 'active adult' community. One out of five boomer households say they are thinking about moving to an age-restricted adult community - a figure more than double what a similar study found five years ago."
