Following are highlights from an article about the future of housing as it pertains specifically in regards to Baby Boomers (the 76M people born between 1946-1964), who currently would be between the ages of 50-68.  


  •  The financial crisis put an end to years of rapid wealth accumulation, causing the typical Boomer household's net worth to fall to $143,000 in 2013    from just over $200,000 in 2007, according to Federal Reserve data.

  • This generation is carrying a lot more mortgage debt. The median outstanding mortgage balance for 50- to 69-year-olds was $118,000 in 2013, up from $48,743 in 1992.

  • Those who said they plan to move into a smaller home were much more affluent, with a median net worth of $322,000, the Demand Institute found.

  • Only one-in-five of the movers said they intend to live in senior housing.

  • More than 17% of the 76 million Boomers are already retired and about 10,000 will reach the traditional retirement age of 65 every day for the next 15 years. And even though many Boomers plan to stay in their current homes, the Demand Institute estimates that this generation will purchase about $1.9 trillion in homes over the next five years.
