“If you want to buy a home and have any faith in your future, this is the time to do it. If you want to buy a second home, this is the time to do it.”

– Scott Burns, Austin American Statesman, February 03, 2013

I just posted 2 “good news” articles for us baby boomers. Just click on the In the News tab on the left side of the page to read them both.

Scott Burns’ quote, above, refers to the fact that housing affordability had its best year ever in 2012.

“About 42 percent of U.S. households are made up of 55-plus residents. By 2020, that number is forecast to grow to almost 47 percent.”

Steve Brown’s article, “Builders hope to lure boomers and seniors as home values rebound” explores the buying power that boomers now have and will continue to have as our homes regain value in the improving real estate market. It sounds as if we are going to have many housing options tailored to our wants and needs in the coming months and years. I LIKE that—can’t wait to see what is out there!
