According to the Housing Confidence Index released in January 2019, 52% of baby boomers plan to “age in place.” That is, people who were born from 1946 to 1964 say they will not move from their current homes as they enjoy their senior years. Moreover, 88% plan to renovate their houses in preparation for later life, and name bathroom remodeling as their top priority.
This is noteworthy in a metropolitan area like Atlanta, GA, which ranked as “America’s no. 1 rapidly aging city” as recently as 2016. You might have a parent, sibling, or other relative who’s a baby boomer, or you might be part of that generation yourself. Whichever the case, you should take a closer look at such numbers, and perhaps start taking your cue from them.
