Baby Boomers are a demographic group of over 72 million people between the ages of 57 to 75. Parents of baby boomers, roughly 22 million Americans over the age of 75, often did not retire until their mid to late 60’s, or even into their 70’s. Baby Boomers are retiring and a much earlier age and, since many have large, empty homes, are now deciding to downsize.
Baby Boomers downsizing is creating a tremendous strain on the moving and storage industry. Because many of the Gen X and Millennial children of downsizing baby boomers do not have interest in keeping a lot of the contents of their parents’ homes, much is being donated, sold and/or stored. Moving companies across the US are experiencing a tremendous increase in demand for moving and storage.
But why are so many baby boomers downsizing all at once? There are a few reasons. Here are 3 main reasons baby boomers are downsizing.
