There’s a new trend among the baby boomers when it comes to vacation or retirement homes. They have a more cautious approach towards the future, they are downsizing to preserve their retirement savings. Their savings have been depleted during the current recession due to the instability of the stock market.

Today’s vacation home will become their savings, an asset that
they can cash in should they need more cash flow in later years. Many of these
second homes, purchased with cash can be converted into investment properties
and used as a retirement income streams.
As you approach retirement, it’s far riskier in today’s market
to have two hundred thousand dollars in mutual funds or a 401K than in a home
purchased with cash. Property values are expected to steadily increase over the
next twenty years.

Builders here in the mountain are taking note of these trends and building smaller, more efficient homes. Check out communities like Big Rock and Fox Ridge on our Exit website ( With complete home and land packages starting under 100K, the demand for stylish vacation style homes has been brisk.
