ABOUT SENIOR DOWNSIZING IN THE U.S.
It is estimated that by year 2030, senior citizens will account for one-fifth of the total U.S. population and will have moved out of around 26 million homes across the country. HuffPost reported that as the Baby Boomer generation retires, the U.S. population age 65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent in the next twenty years. The top three reasons seniors downsize include changes in health, freedom from home maintenance responsibilities and a desire for peace of mind. About 75 percent of seniors say the amount of things they own has made them “somewhat” or “very” reluctant to move. This is why many articles on tips on senior downsizing include planning early and hiring assistance to help facilitate the move. To learn more about seniors and retirement in the U.S., click here.
