Tips on buying a new home in Killeen, TX

Boomers Are Driving the Housing Market

It is no secret that as more than 76 million Baby Boomers enter their empty-nesting years many are rethinking their housing situation. Affluent Boomers whose children have flown the coup are fueling a new housing spurt; and according to Fannie Mae's 2002 National Housing Survey results, nearly 31 percent of Baby Boomers said they are very or fairly likely to buy a home in the next three years.

In fact, a recent Associated Press article states that the newest trend in homebuilding is "aging in place." Healthy people still in their 50's are preparing for a comfortable retirement by designing homes they will be able to live in for the rest of their lives.

Empty nesters want all the amenities of suburbia without the usual maintenance and upkeep of a home. Real estate marketing analyst, Sandra Kull says, "This is a new type of retirement.

We all dream of being homeowners - whether we are purchasing a home for the first time or designing our dream retirement house. There is a tremendous sense of achievement in realizing that dream and stepping into your new house for the first time. According to data from the U.S. Department of Commerce, nearly 70 percent of all Americans own their homes. That's nearly 73 million households.

Did you also know that according to the EPA, the average US household is responsible for emitting nearly 60 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air each year? Carbon dioxide is a green house gas that contributes to global warming. To put this into perspective, it's the same amount of CO2 put in the air by driving nearly 133,333 miles in a year, or the equivalent of nearly 11,000 cars driving an average of 12,000 miles in a year. Multiplied out by 73 million households, that's a lot of pollution.

The good news is there are three very simple, yet powerful choices we can make as homeowners to reduce the amount of CO2 our household puts into the air each year.
