For the past 30 years, Barbara Corcoran has built a business and a career on knowing where we will live before we even know it ourselves. She's sold her business for an astounding price, has penned a best-selling memoir, and is the national media's go-to person for real estate trends and news. In NEXTVILLE, she turns her keen eye toward predicting "the next big things" in real estate for Boomers as they begin to reach retirement.
Barbara identifies the top 8 trends that are changing where (and how) Boomers are retiring--whether it's pursuing passions, living green, finding community, living young in a city or college town, or even staying right in your old home town. Corcoran delivers her signature "Barb's Rules" for choosing real estate that no one can afford to miss. These 77 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 -- who are turning 60 this year at a rate of 8,000+ per day -- are healthier and wealthier than their parents were. And according to a recent study, 60% of these Boomers plan to move to a new home in the next 10 years. zBut most of these folks aren't going to head to a condo in Boca like Grandma did. This group is looking for other options and their location will reflect their passions. Barbara Corcoran will name the places where readers can make the best investment today to ensure a secure, comfortable, and fabulously fun tomorrow.
Now in this updated paperback edition, Barbara Corcoran discusses how to survive...and profit from the economic downturn.
