Baby boomers — those born between 1946 and 1964 — own more than 30 million U.S. homes, according to Fannie Mae. But unlike previous generations that may have sold homes later in life to downsize, move in with family, or move to an assisted living facility, baby boomers have shown a greater tendency to age in place.
Thirty-eight percent of American homeowners aged 65 and older have lived in their home for more than 30 years, and another 39% have lived in their home for more than 10 years. Only about one out of every five retirement-age households moved within the last 10 years.
