The Ups of Going Down for Baby Boomers: Downsizing for Retirement Living
For many Americans, especially the Baby Boomer generation, retirement is either here or just on the horizon. The first of the Boomer generation to hit retirement age was in 2011 and according to the National Association of REALTORS®, the population of baby boomers entering retirement is projected to be 10,000 people a day, for at least the next two decades!

The Boomers are a generation unlike any who came before them and we are in the midst of an unprecedented housing shift.
