"Boomers" Increasingly Buying Into "Lifestyle" Communities

"Baby Boomer Real Estate"


"Baby Boomers", the generation born to post-World War II parents (The Silent Generation) from about 1945-1964. As you can imagine, many veterans returning from one, two, and three year deployments in Europe and the Pacific were all too ready to leave the fog of war behind them and build futures, and families, upon returning to opportunity laden U.S. soil. As a result, the United States saw an explosion of its population during this period. Fast forward to modern day America and we find that same generation now in their 50's, 60's and 70's. They are retired, retiring or semi-retiring yet still young enough to want to live an active lifestyle. In fact, because of the onset of age-related health issues, this demographic is increasingly becoming more health conscience. They also typically have more time in their schedules and are looking to share and experience their "Golden Years" with other boomers whom they tend to have more in common with. Subsequently, we are seeing a sharp rise in the availability of what developers and city planners have dubbed "Lifestyle Communities". Let's talk about one of the newest lifestyle communities in Sarasota - Bellacina by Casey Key, an Esplanade Community by TaylorMorrison.

Manifest Destiny...westward expansion. The sound of it just takes me back to those good 'ol days of my 7th-grade history class! You don't remember? In short, the "new" Americans were pulling their roots out of the more populated cities and towns of the east and moving west. Moving west in search of economic opportunity, land ownership...and freedom. It started small, but by 1840, nearly half (40%) of our nation's population lived in the trans-Appalachian west. The suburbs were getting busy! Fast forward to modern day America and it would appear as though we may have another expansion occurring. Only this time, Americans are heading south.

The Best U.S. Markets to Invest in Rental Properties in 2018

Ever get tired of hearing people go on and on about “Location, location, location!”, whenever real estate comes up in any given conversation? Yet most real estate investors never look much further beyond their own backyard, when deciding where to invest. Millions of Americans invest in rental real estate, and they all have the same goal in common: to make money. Location is the only factor that you cannot change once you buy a rental property. While you can do repairs to improve the quality and look of your rental property, there is nothing you can do about the location of your investment.

Florida GDP Hits $1 Trillion Mark

Florida becomes more and more of an economic powerhouse every year, being one of the ripest and most in-demand markets in the country, so it comes as no surprise that Friday, July 13th, Florida’s gross domestic product finally reached the $1 trillion mark. According to the state chamber, if Florida were an independent country, that amount of economic output would make the Sunshine State the world’s 17th largest economy, growing larger than Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and Argentina’s. Although the number is high, this was to be expected, University of Central Florida economic analyst Sean Snaith said the state has been strong in all areas of employment.


This is really being driven by fundamentals. This is not just a fluke of an overheated economy.


According to the economist who authored the study pointed to growth i...
