Here are a few thoughts I was pondering over the other day that really make sense.
What does this mean for the Lakes Region?
“Boomers” are now clustering in scenic places, where they have often vacationed. They want to return to happy places where they experienced fond memories as children. Like birds that migrate to places of familiar origin, they want their kids and grandchildren to share the same experiences. The Lakes Region should expect migration from “Boomers” within this demographic trend.
Do we see trends happening as a result?
Yes, definitely. Northern New England has become a “Boomer” stronghold. Many immigrants and the younger generation have located to regions of the country where the job masses are located. Pre-retirement areas such as the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, the coastal towns of Maine/New Hampshire, and Cape Cod, are like magnets attracting “Boomers”. They are seeking a quieter, relaxed lifestyle, with recreational and cultural opportunities.
What are some of the reasons “Boomers” will be attracted to the Lakes Region?
Expect migration of “Boomers” to the Lakes Region?
Most definitely. All Lakes Region Realtors have seen a surge of interest from southern NH, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, and FL. With 76 million Americans in the “Boomer” category the demographic migration to the Lakes Region will be substantial because it’s within a 7 hour drive of 50+ million people.
Any Statistics supporting the “Boomers” attraction to the Lakes Region?
We’re in a good place right now. This is the first time in my career where many signs are pointing to NH’s Lakes Region because of pure demographics. Our prices in the region for existing inventory are very favorable and we have the lowest interest rates in 40 years to work with. We have an abundance of inventory in all categories including waterfront and island properties, beach access properties, condominium homes, residential properties, country homes and farms, recreational properties, gated planned communities, view properties, land, and commercial opportunities. We offer four seasons of recreation and we are at the foothills of 760,000 acres of national forests and the beautiful White Mountains. Our lake, pond, and river choices are numerous. Our scenic lakeside villages are quaint and second to none. There’s something for everyone. We can expect a continued growth and prosperity over the next 10 years as outlined in the trend lines above.
