The Emerald Greens of UNretirement-Asheville Style


"Boomers"- In the Real Estate News-- AGAIN!
The Emerald Greens of UNretirement-Asheville Style


“A series of studies by The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology this year found that an expected workforce shortage hasn't been as bad as it could have been because Boomers have been reluctant to retire. Longer, healthier lives have helped them stay in the workforce longer than previous generations, but a bigger factor may be their rewarding roles.” Source 


That’s news to some people. But here in the home of the Creative UN retirees, Asheville, N.C., our clients have been saying it all along: 

Many people, regardless of age or physical ability, love the idea and experience of continuing to work with and/or  simply enjoy the camaraderie of friends and neighbors. This continues to be  desirable- with no age limit-  according to many with whom we  speak. At the creative edge of time, they say it’s an “emerald green” life in a mountain home on the land (see photo below- awesome LAND  for Sale in Asheville) .

Take, for example, Colonel Mark Dierlam- Air Force, 42nd Air Base Wing Commander  who “…never considered spending his retirement on the golf course.” We read:  "I was flying jets," Dierlam said. "At the same time, this financial stuff was my hobby. So I moved into my hobby as a second career. I just love building plans."Source 


(Let's talk about a 1031 Like-Kind Exchange- a condo for LAND? or vice versa) )




All of this leads to this idea: START PLANNING  A FINE FEATHERED NEST-  (Asheville's our  top place) - a home not only functional but beautiful for the long term.  Whether you rent or own your dwelling place - whether you plan to "downsize"  and move to a new home, or whether you desire to stay in a your lifelong home, a good place to begin is by asking, finding answers to, and talking about making  that dream of "Aging-in- P a L a C E " come true. We're ready willing and able to listen and answer your questions. Email us.

janeAnne, Most Baby Boomers continue to work because they have to, not because they want comraderie. I'm just glad that un-retirement is still an option, otherwise there would be many forced to eat dog food.

There are so many options... Just need to pick one and un-retire. As long as you are healthy, age should not determine when.

Georgia's Lake Country, where I live and work, is also ideal for boomers choosing to stay engaged with work, while living in an environment where they can happily age in place. Some are working by choice, some because the alternate is not an option.  Either way, you may as well be living in a great place!
