The Silver Tsunami - 20 Million Potential Listings Coming

 

Currently, 33.9 percent of owner-occupied U.S. homes are owned by residents aged 60 or older, and 55.2 percent by residents aged 50 or older. As these households age and begin vacating housing, that could represent upwards of 20 million homes hitting the market through the mid-2030s.

According to a recent report by Zillow Research "the massive Baby Boomer generation has already begun aging into retirement, and will begin passing away in large numbers in coming decades – releasing a flood of currently owner-occupied homes that could hit the market."

We can be of service to Baby Boomers who may be looking at retirement options, senior living options, moving in with adult children, or right-sizing to travel more and spend time with grandchildren.

The numbers are staggering....
