Older Baby Boomers and Real Estate

That means two of every 10 of your clients are likely to be older Baby Boomers, and understanding what resonates with that generation can help ensure that youre showing them the right homes for the right reasons and that youre marketing their homes in the most effective ways.


Baby Boomers and Real Estate Statistics

This year, Baby Boomers are somewhere between the ages of 60 and 68. Statistics suggest that 16 percent of them purchased a multi-generational home, and most of them purchase a home thats strikingly similar to their previous home.

Considering that 91 percent of the buyers in this age group are repeat homebuyers, and that theyre often motivated by retirement, you can strategize and plan ahead to make sure their needs are being met.

Showing Baby Boomers the Right Homes

When your clients are telling you what they want, make sure you listen: this group is accustomed to coming right out and saying what they mean, according to MSN, and at the top of the list? A fantastic, modern kitchen. Workshops and hobby studios are also among the most-requested spaces among the older Baby Boomer set.

Marketing a Baby Boomers Home

Lets face it: some of us are not quite as up-to-par with the Internet and social media as we should be but for most homes, they function as an extremely effective marketing tool. Unfortunately, you may have to convince Baby Boomer clients that youre doing them justice by advertising their home on Facebook, Pinterest and other online gathering places, according to Andrea Lekushoff, the founder and president of Broad Reach Communications.
