Overview of the Designation
Over the past two decades, there has been
considerable attention paid to the focused real estate needs
of senior citizens. Today we need to be more inclusive in
our understanding of the impact of generational
identification on other consumers in the marketplace.
People in each of the following generations is faced with challenges that are unique to their station in life:
Millennials - An emerging market buying earlier than any generation that has gone before. Its members include many foreign born people.
Generation X - They are the most active buyers but housing choices have changed to accommodate more family time and lessen commutes.
Boomers - Buyers in their highest earning years (but not all share the prosperity). Investments in real estate and the stock market have been depleted with the economic crisis.
Silents - The highest homeownership rates and with large equity. Tend to be conservative and stable although some are upgrading but down-sizing.
G.I. Generation - The original seniors, many now lost to us.

recognize how the major financial issues listed below impact
