Urban Exodus, Revenge Retail: Senior Living Opportunities in a Disrupted Real Estate Landscape – Senior Housing News

Covid-19 has made “density” a dirty word in real estate, and senior living developers are taking heed. Some data indicate an exodus is occurring from the most densely populated urban centers in the United States, in part because people are wary of coronavirus outbreaks like the one that beleaguered New York City in the early days of the pandemic. Related to that trend, question marks are hanging over urban mixed-use projects. Prior to Covid-19, such developments were on the rise, in part to meet growing demand for walkable, live-work-play environments.

7 Surprisingly Valuable Assets for a Happy Retirement – Kiplinger’s Personal Finance

Retirement planning is all about numbers. It centers around one question: Do my financial assets — pension, 401(k)s/IRAs, Social Security, property, sale of a business, etc. — provide enough income to fund my desired retirement lifestyle?
