Did you happen to see the 2014 report on emerging trends in real estate by The Urban Land Institute ? Interesting! It  reports that, “…baby boomers [desire living accommodations] within walking distance of downtown areas or moving into centers for active seniors.

Many people, regardless of age or physical ability, love the idea and experience of working with and/or  simply enjoying the camaraderie of friends and neighbors. This continues to be  desirable- with no age limit-  according to many older adults we speak with. Asheville is noted as a wonderful, wonderful place if you are considering relocation in retirement.

In fact, here’s my annual reminder  about the Creative Retirement Exploration Weekendwhere you can discover “ the challenges and opportunities of choosing where and how to relocate in retirement at the Creative Retirement Exploration Weekend (CREW). This practical, action-planning workshop will help you consider:

  • What retirement lifestyle suits me?
  • Am I ready to relocate?
  • Which community is the best fit for me?
  • What type of housing will meet my needs now and for years to come?
  • How will I find community in my new hometown?
  • What do I do with all my stuff?

Would you like a PDF about the workshop? Let us know ASAP. It's happening in May!

I do not know that is a universal idea.  Many of the seniors I work with do not want to be in senior communities nor in the city.

 I love it.  Responding to comment above me, I think you are going to find seniors who want complete opposites.  I know many that adore living in a community with like minded. aged people and I know others who are just the opposite.  Options!
