Moving During Retirement

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Nov 04, 2015 @ 02:15 PM

In a recent Merrill Lynch study“Home in Retirement: More Freedom, New Choices” they surveyed nearly 6,000 adults ages 21 and older about housing. According to that study, “an estimated 4.2 million retirees moved into a new home last year alone.” Two-thirds of retirees say that they are likely to move at least once during retirement.

The top reason to relocate cited was “wanting to be closer to family” at 29%, a close second was “wanting to reduce home expenses”. See the chart below from Keeping Current Matters for the top 6 reasons broken down.
