According to a report from the KCM real estate group, “Sixty-five is the new forty-five. With more people working beyond traditional retirement age and the advances in modern medicine, the lines between middle and late adulthood are becoming a bit blurred. What makes this relevant in the world of real estate?  As our population ages, we will see more and more organizations dedicating their marketing efforts toward the senior demographic. Not all seniors are the same.  Despite the label of senior, there are three distinct types, all three involve seniors, but they aren’t based necessarily on age. Age is not a good predictor of relocation. Instead, people generally make changes in residence based on life circumstances.

Move #1: Amenity-based:  These individuals and/or couples are seeking a certain type of lifestyle and their home is only one component of a much larger picture. When looking to sell, they are usually transferring their equity from one home to the next and can usually either pay cash or put a significant down payment towards their purchase. Depending upon employment status, they may be moving across the country for more appealing climates or seeking a place near an airport making it easier to commute. Some are moving closer to kids and grandkids, while others are moving to destination locations where the family can enjoy visiting.

Move #2: Anticipatory / Planning: As people age, they may begin to experience changes in personal health status or become the caregiver of a spouse requiring additional care. When this occurs, people may find their current home unmanageable or no longer suited for their current situation. Moving means simplifying and making preparations for future care needs and support. With this type of move, seniors are typically looking to buy a property with minimal maintenance, accessibility features, and in close proximity to quality healthcare.

Move #3: Needs-based:  While most people intend to live independently, unfortunately, this reality isn’t always possible. As health declines to the point where more support is needed than can be provided for within the person’s home and community, relocation is necessary. This move may involve selling the personal residence and relocating to a senior living community with one floor ease.”
