Baby-Boomers-STM


According to a Merrill Lynch 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.

As one participant in the study stated:

“In retirement, you have the chance to live anywhere you want. Or you can just stay where you are. There hasn’t been another time in life when we’ve had that kind of freedom.”

The top reason to relocate cited was “wanting to be closer to family” at 29%, a close second was “wanting to reduce home expenses” at 26%.

A recent Freddie Mac study found similar results, as “nearly 20 percent of Boomers said they would move closer to their grandchildren/children compared to 13 percent who said they would move to a warmer climate.”

Not Every Baby Boomer Downsizes
There is a common misconception that as retirees find themselves with fewer children at home, they will instantly desire a smaller home to maintain. While that may be the case for half of those surveyed, the study found that three in ten decide to actually upsize to a larger home.

Some choose to buy a home in a desirable destination with extra space for large family vacations, reunions, extended visits, or to allow other family members to move in with them. According to Merrill Lynch:

“Retirees often find their homes become places for family to come together and reconnect, particularly during holidays or summer vacations.”

Bottom Line
If your housing needs have changed, or are about to change, let’s get together to discuss your next steps.

Terry Belt & The Belt Team Named To Washingtonian’s Top Real Estate Agent List

The Belt Team - Best of RealtorsThe Belt Team is honored to announce that we have once again been named to Washingtonian Magazines “Top Real Estate Agent List” in their 2016 “Best of Washington” issue. Only 99 agents in the entire Northern VA, Washington D.C. & Maryland area were listed (and a large number of those were in our own Keller Williams McLean office!). Thanks to all of our clients and friends for allowing us to serve you and your referrals!

In case you’re wondering how they came up with the list, here’s what the magazine said last year: ” We sent surveys to nearly 16,000 recent Washington homebuyers asking them to rank their agents on a series of criteria, including integrity, market knowledge, and negotiation skills. We called mortgage brokers and settlement attorneys to ask whom they most enjoy doing business with and whose clients always seem happiest. And of course, we asked dozens of agents to dish about their peers. Based on these layers of reporting, we came up with the following 99 names.

Top 100 Teams Keller Williams

The Belt Team includes Terry Belt (CEO), Gail Belt (Founding Partner), Kevin Kleifges (Listing Specialist), Tom Reilly (Lead Buyer Specialist), Beth Dadisman (Showing Partner), Tom Hanton (Realtor), Kristina Stepanova (Seniors Specialist), Christy Grossman (Chief Operating Officer), Jerry Belt (Special Services) & Patty Schuebel (Client Care Manager).

Washington Best Real Estate AgentsThe Belt Team serves all of Northern Virginia and Washington DC. We have sold more homes in the Vienna Oakton area than any other Realtor or team since 1973, and we also sell more homes outside of Vienna / Oakton than we do in! The Belt Team Team is ranked in the Top 150 Teams for the largest real estate company by agent count in the world – Keller Williams Realty, with over 140,000 agents.
