Where Are Baby Boomers Going to Live?



July 16, 2013

At age 70, I fall under the heading baby boomer. My children are grown and gone with homes and families of their own, the large house is sold, everything has been downsized, my health is perfect, and I love my work. I can say the same for most of the friends I grew up with, all retired professionals, most still with their spouses, though I prefer to live alone and do my thing, travel, and enjoy life. I remained in Brooklyn and couldn't see myself anywhere else but my two bedroom apartment on the water facing the Verrazano Bridge. It is here that media has come to film me, that do my best work, have great neighbors, and as an extra prize in Brooklyn ... I have my own parking spot.

I read people from all walks of life, many of them baby boomers who seek guidance after retirement. The article below is exactly what I have predicted for their futures, at least those who can still care for themselves. There are wonderful options out there for those who plan carefully.

There are many recommendations for the best places for baby boomers to retire, including the healthiest places, sunniest places, best places overseas, the most affordable places and the best places that you probably can't afford.

But people are funny. Sometimes they just don't do what the pundits tell them to do. So where are baby boomers actually starting to retire? Here's what the facts say about where boomers are headed over the next 10 or 15 years:

Boomers will stay where they already live.

They will move to be near their children and grandchildren.

They will relocate to areas with a lower cost of living.

They will choose less congested areas.

They will move into senior living facilities.
