The best is yet to come for Boomers

March 31st, 2014 Written By Carol Pawley

boomers

 

According to a recent survey, 57% of baby boomers (ages 49-67)  plan to move out of their current home, and 70 percent believe the house they retire in will be the best home they’ve ever owned!

Here are additional survey findings

• Visitors only: Most boomers – 83 percent – don’t expect family to move into their home in the future, indicating they expect any “house guests,” including adult children, to be temporary.

• Putting down roots: Many boomers have planted roots in their communities and want to remain in a familiar place. Of those surveyed who are not already retired, 72 percent plan to retire in the same state.

• Easy living:
When asked to pick the most important factor in choosing their next home, low-maintenance features topped the list (42%).

• Not just yet
:  28 percent of boomers who are not yet retired, never plan to retire; and the 46 percent who plan to retire still anticipate working part-time.

Carrington Mortgage announced plans to further sharpen its focus on reaching and serving “underserved” borrowers (typically those in the sub-640 FICO score range) – a sizable market that has been mostly ignored by lenders.  The California firm has lowered its minimum credit requirement to a  FICO score of 550, and expanded its guidelines on a number of FHA, VA and USDA loan programs, extending eligibility to more property types and reducing overlays.

New construction continues to create job growth in South Florida, helping lead the state’s economic recovery as it continues to outshine the nation.

Hiring data released Monday showed Miami-Dade County added 2,400 new construction jobs in January, up 7.6 percent over the same month in 2013. Broward County added 4,400 building-related jobs in January, up 14.1 percent year-over-year.  As the tourism-oriented sunshine economy amps up, joblessness in Florida was below that of the nation for the sixth consecutive month.

November 5th, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley

A1854028_201_65

Last week I showed an amazing tri-level townhome on the water, located at 3564 W Fairview St. The townhouse is in a gated community with only 8 units and features 2 bedrooms 3.5 baths and best of all a 40′ dock with no bridges to bay. The unit was updated in 2005 and has volume ceilings, 4 balconies and serene views. Located close to the heart of Coconut Grove and downtown. The property is listed by Lowell International Realty for $925,000. This is a great property for anyone who wants to live on the water for under $1,000,000.
