Reverse migration?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker RS318386

I just read this great article about reverse migration, and at first the term itself was a little confusing.  In short reverse migration is the study of seniors who are migrating back into city life instead of coastal living.

 

In many ways it makes sense! As a young person people are drawn to the city for the abundance of things to do. As a retired individual you also look for places that give you as many options as possible. The big difference is that stereotypically the older generation has more disposable income and can really enjoy the finer things that a metropolis has to offer.

 

Living in a big city, can be very different for those who count every penny to those who have planned their golden years.

Hello Coal,  I have not given it time to think about where I want to end up in my golden years.

I love coffee & real estate. I am out of coffee!

Coal, I am finding it interesting right now the options, as well. There was a day we valued a single family home "with a white picket fence" and a time everyone termed "privacy fence" as a positive and then... I theorize we all felt a bit lonely. Personally, yea. I was "stuck" a year in between recently in a mixed use community - business on level one, residence on top. LOVED. IT. Literally felt like I was in some convenient vacation stay. Yes. I said it felt like vacation. I can see why people would intentionally make the long-term decision in an urban lifestyle. What do I believe it really boils down to? You are a people person (want Urban) or you are a nature person (want beach, woods, remote). Those of us who are both find ways to blend them with ease in either location.

Coal,

In urban life, there are many options you can walk to instead of drive, and lots of activity instead of just retiring out of life.  A

Hi Coal -- I have heard and seen this phenomenon as well.  It's nice to have choices regardless of age.
