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!
