As the Baby Boomer generation continues to mature and have children “leave the nest,” their housing needs are evolving as well. Typically, Boomers are now beginning to look for homes with less maintenance, the option for single-level living and a desirable location in active adult or “walkable” communities that are close to dining, shopping, transportation and other amenities. In fact, Boomers were the largest segment of home buyers in 2013.
