I'm a baby boomer, but I have it made, I can retire in a place I'd likely choose if I didn't live here -- Savannah, Ga.
When the economy improves and homes start selling more briskly, the baby boomer retirement movement will proceed at a healthy pace. I can recommend Savannah to anyone living in large, cold industrial areas -- Savannah has a lot to offer retirees -- an interesting downtown community, art, music and plays, the beach, gated communities with good golf courses and the ability to play almost year around.
Exclusive buyer agency works for retiring baby boomers -- one thing we have learned is that good information is powerful, and that's what exclusive buyer agency is about -- providing good, objective information so that a buyer can make a well-informed decision.
Moving out of state doesn't have to be an anxious experience of not knowing the ins and outs of the real estate market in which you'll be moving -- buyer agents understand this and offer services to remove the anxiety. You can do all your upfront research over the internet, and if you get the right buyer agent, you will know everything you need to know about a place like Savannah Ga before ever looking at a home.
Using a buyer agent is the smart way to buy a home. Baby boomers should find the experience a fun adventure rather than an anxious hassle. In today's market, good information is critical. Having a good buyer agent you can trust is much better than going fom listing agent to listing agent, each one attempting to sell their listings -- not that there is anything wrong with listing agents trying to sell their listings, because they represent the seller and that's what they are supposed to do -- but you are the buyer, and you need representation, too.
