Following are Interesting Key Points Regarding Our SaddleBrooke Market Place.

Three generational groups comprise the senior market as it currently exists: Baby Boomers, the Silent Generation and the G.I. Generation. 

-The Baby Boomer Generation now accounts for nearly half of all consumer spending. They were born 1946-1964, total around 23% of the U.S. population (72 million.) Nationwide, 76% of them own their own homes.

-Note: Younger Boomers are considered mid-life, not really seniors. However, many are thinking forward and planning for their retirement.

-The Silent Generation, aka the Traditionalists or Mature Generation, was born from 1927 (give or take) through 1945. At around 7.5% of the American population, Silents number just over 24 million. Only about 10% of homebuyers are Silents, and most are downsizing, preferring multi-family living (condos, villas, townhouses, etc.) or senior designated housing as opposed to single family residences.

The G.I. Generation was born between 1901 and 1926 and now comprise less than 1% of the country’s population, approximately 2 million people. Again, many of the G.I. Generation are aging out of home ownership, relocating instead to independent or assisted living communities or moving in with family.

All these Senior Adults are as varied as any other age groups. It’s wrong to assume they all have the same needs, wants, purchasing pendants and definitely communication preferences!!
