‘The Boom of Home-buying Boomers

By James D. York, P.A.

A recent Freddie Mac survey of the over-55 set revealed that nearly 40% of baby boomers—some 26 million people—plan to move at least once more. And 13% say they will be looking for a new home within the next four years.

This will have a big effect on the housing market, according to Dave Lowman, Freddie Mac’s executive vice president of Single-Family Business. "The decisions the nation's baby boomers and other older homeowners make will have an enormous impact on the demand for housing and new mortgage credit for the foreseeable future. Whether they buy new homes or decide to refinance and renovate their current ones, the size of this generation and the fact that they hold close to two-thirds, approximately $8 trillion, of the nation's home equity makes it very important that we watch what they do,” Lowman said.

About half of boomers who plan to relocate say they expect to purchase a new home that is less expensive than the one they currently own. They will also be considering proximity to family members, easier maintenance, and the availability of health services, public transportation, and other amenities when they choose a new community to call home.
