Those of us tagged as members of the “Baby Boomer” generation (born 1946 to 1964, so I am six months shy of being a Gen-Xer) are part of an explosion of births that occurred in the prosperous post-World War II era. Baby boom kids came of age in the 1960s and 1970s, and this generation of Americans has come to wield an enormous amount of political, financial and social influence over the last 30 years.
Recognizing this fact, Coldwell Banker Real Estate recently took a look at the buying and selling trends of the demographic. However, they analyzed their recorded data with a twist: by dividing the baby boomer generation into two different age categories, they noticed areas of commonality, as well as great disparity, between younger Boomers (ages 47-55) and older Boomers (56-64). Given that 79 million Americans fall into one or the other grouping, the division resulted in some interesting findings.
