The 50+ real estate market is changing rapidly. Within this massive group of potential clients, there are distinct and growing sub-markets with vastly different needs and preferences. In these next few years, Generation X will be joining the boomers and matures, making serving the 50+ market even more of a challenging (and rewarding) puzzle for real estate professionals to solve.
For the mature buyers—those born between the years 1927 and 1945—the decision to move can be an emotional and complicated process. The sense of obligation to the family home may be a burden and a comfort at the same time. Real estate professionals must understand the unique factors that affect the mature homebuyer’s decision, and offer guidance and support throughout the transaction.
Baby boomers are savvy homebuyers. They approach the transaction with high expectations and confidence. They consider the home a reflection of their lifestyle, so image and status are important. Whether they are downsizing, upsizing, or purchasing a second home, vacation home, or investment property, they know what they want and how to tell you about it.
Newbies to the 50+ group, Generation X stands out because of their strong need for independence and practical yet cautious approach. They take on the responsibility of gathering information and rely strongly on facts and documentation. They ask a lot of questions and don’t want to get burned. They expect their home to complement their lifestyle and not the other way around.

"Kurt and his team managed my rental property for 16 months as well as helped me then sell it in 2015. Every step of the way, he was always available, and very easy to work with. He handled issues with my tenant promptly and firmly, and when we transitioned to selling the property, he ensured that I got the best price for my property and went above and beyond to make sure that I had a buyer who could close escrow...Read more on Yelp"
