From Realtor’s Magazine:

With a mindset that they are healthier than their parents were, have adequate nest eggs to maintain their homes, and are emotionally attached to their neighborhoods and belongings, many Boomers are revising the anticipated script of where they’ll live as they enter the last chapter of their lives.
Baby Boomers, a huge cohort of 68.6 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964, aren’t rushing to relocate to senior and assisted-care facilities in the Sunbelt. Rather, the vast majority of 92% say they want to age in place, even if they haven’t yet planned how to do so safely, according to the American Advisors Group. Home sales statistics reflect that trend.
So, what might spur Boomers to move and add housing inventory for eager millennials?  Retirement is a potential trigger for Boomers, pushing them to move places they want to live, including closer to friends and family. If they move, it may be to a different type of home, but not necessarily downsizing. The lack of downsizing may be due to the lack of inventory of smaller homes, but also their desire for a bigger home to accommodate children and grandchildren. It appears unlikely that housing inventory will increase as was anticipated when the Boomers purchased 20 years or more ago.
10,000 Boomers reach the age of 65 everyday!”
