Defying conventional wisdom that holds that retirees either downsize their homes or move to a more favorable climate, seniors are now tending to "age in place", Three quarters of the people age 45 and over surveyed by AARP indicate that they will stay in their current homes as long as they can. With this emphasis on stability in mind, buyers with young families may want to select a home that speaks to more than their immediate needs. This selective approach to home buying may include a preference for ranch style homes that can accommodate older adults with limited mobility. It also may pay to view bedrooms with an eye toward converting them to hobby rooms and offices once the children leave the home.
HINT: Buyers with young families and long-term perspectives tend to attach just as much importance to the quality of prospective neighborhoods and their schools and services as to price.
