Real Estate for Seniors. What is a Real Estate Seniors Specialist?
A Realtor who has completed the certification SRES has incorporated skills to serve real estate buyers and sellers who are aged 55 and older. We have been trained to understand the issues of these years, including downsizing, aging-in-place, reverse mortgages, and much more.
Here’s a breakdown of the years by “name” – Baby Boomers (1946-1964); Silent Generation (1927-1945); G.I. Generation (1901-1926). According to a report titled “65+ in the U.S.: 2005” done by the U.S. Census Bureau, more than half of the 65+ population live in 9 states, with the top four being California, Florida, New York and Texas. 77% of those live in metropolitan areas such as towns like Half Moon Bay, CA. Half Moon Bay is within a short drive to world class medical facilities at UCSF Medical Center and Stanford Hospital.
