Plus 55 Communities: Competing Against Current Housing
Although baby boomers are getting to the age where retirement is a real possibility, builders are not too optimistic. Although they are aware that plus 55 communities have become quite popular, it appears that a lot of baby boomers are just fine living in their current home.
