Being over 50 isn’t what it used to be. (Just think about what being 50 looked like to your parents and grandparents.) Baby Boomers are changing the face of 50-plus living. They are busier, healthier and more active – and their decisions about how to live their “golden years” reflect that.

Today’s 50+ generation has so many options! But as a recent article in US News & World Report revealed, there are certain things that all Baby Boomers seem to want:

  1. No debt. They want to pay off their mortgages, own their homes free and clear. It’s a crucial step before they can even consider retirement.
  1. Lower housing expenses. Many boomers want to move to smaller homes so they free up money for travel, medical expenses, or other expenses they may face at some point.
  1. More convenience. A smaller new home means less maintenance, less work and less worry. They want modern appliances, energy-efficient doors and windows, spacious kitchens, and a one-story floorplan.
  1. Boomers have spent half their lives in the car, commuting and ferrying kids around. Now they want daily necessities close-by.
  1. Comfort and style, and homes that are more age-friendly. E.g. Low-pile carpeting and wood floors, extra lighting, and grab bars in the bathrooms.
  1. They want to stay in their own homes, in their own neighborhoods, with their own friends, for as long as possible.
  1. Proximity to family & friends. Whether they stay in their hometowns or move away, most boomers say where they live is about staying connected to children and grandchildren and friends.
