Think of it as  "ride" and "boomers" come alive. That's a saying one of our clients here in Asheville mentioned to us in a conversation about life after 50. We were intrigued! It's true- it seems that many older adults and "baby boomers" are, right about now, thinking about "The Clock".

TRENDS: Getting Creative: As real estate professionals, working with this huge demographic, are you thinking about that, too- mulling over certain choices in terms of a "Forever Home"- and the potential benefits of aging-in-place?

Much new information is arriving. Advances in the area of positive aging are on the horizon. We are excited about the National Association of Home Builders' Certified Aging in Place programs as an indicator of a trend toward "self-assisted living."

Planned independence is a serious issue for home owners who are looking to their future comfort - in style.We wrote about this in an article entitled "AGING IN PaLACE"-   asking what are the "appropriate? solutions to the aging-in-place dilemma? And how might one define “appropriate”? With the answer to this question in mind, homeowners may adopt an entirely novel perspective- one that changes the very experience of a lifetime at home.

If you are a "savvy senior", for example, you may insist upon remodeling your present home to include home automation amenities.  Such innovative remodeling supports high performance -energy and dollar savings. Building strategies can make the perfect nest a comfortable, healthy and affordable place to live.

Good morning Team.  It would seem that there are many "savvy seniors" these days.  Making their list and checking it twice on how to remain independent as long as possible in their own home.  None more determined than my In-Laws.

Jane Anne you are such an expert in the senior niche.   The trend is certainly that of aging in place.  Good to see builders are taking notice.
