Boomers are Confident and Ready for Next Phase in Life, Survey Finds
Friday, March 28, 2014 7:00 AM

Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate has released the findings of a national survey of Baby Boomers (ages 49-67) revealing this influential generation’s feelings of optimism about living an independent, active lifestyle; a lifestyle unrestrained by planned retirement communities and instead bolstered by living out their life passions.

The survey indicates that 57 percent of Baby Boomers plan to move out of their current home and 70 percent believe the house they retire in will be the best home in which they have ever lived.

Among Baby Boomers who feel more confident about achieving their ideal retirement lifestyle compared to five years ago, the top factor is having a retirement lifestyle plan (49 percent). Approximately one-fourth (22 percent) of Baby Boomers are likely to buy an additional home to use during their retirement years, such as a vacation or beach house.

For a generation that was hit hard during the recession, this commitment to lifestyle planning and desire for their “dream home” is a great show of optimism.
