Discovering the Right Home during Your Golden Years
Finding a new home and moving can be a big undertaking at any stage of life. Senior citizens have unique household needs to consider when it comes to buying and selling homes. Consider these tell-tale signs specific to America’s Baby Boomer generation.
- Nearly 80 percent of seniors own a home.1
- 87 percent of adults age 65+ want to stay in their current home and community as they age.
- Among people age 50 to 64, 71 percent of people want to age in place.2

For individuals wanting to age in place, we’ll help you discover a home that addresses your specific needs―from one-story households with wider door ways that can accommodate walkers and wheel chairs to living spaces with technology that keeps you in touch with the local resources you need.
