Are Grandparents Moving To Roseville CA To Be Closer to Their Grandkids?
During the pandemic, many people distanced themselves from their loved ones for health reasons. Grandparents were told to stay away from their grandkids, especially as schools started to open. That’s because some people thought that would have been risky to visit with their grandchildren who may have gotten sick from school. (BUT did you you know many were also using the time and moving to Roseville CA during that same time period!)
Now that the pandemic has passed, many grandparents want more than ever to be near their grandchildren again to make up for all that lost time. But how are they getting that “Grandparent Wish?” Real Estate data tells us many are moving to Roseville CA or other areas where their grandchildren live to make sure they’re getting more quality time. Even better – many of my real estate clients who are boomers and seniors are telling me the exact same thing! And with cute grandkids locally, but even more in two other states, I can TOTALLY understand. (I do LOVE Southwest Airlines!)
Many Grandparents Are Moving to Roseville, Rocklin or Lincoln To Be Near Loved Ones
Recent data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows people between the ages of 55 and 74 are moving farther (more than 100 miles) than any other age group! For that matter, I have clients who are older than that – some are moving to be near the grandkids. Others for our lovely retirement communities. So many GREAT choices. (see graph below):
The average age of grandparents in the U.S. is 67 years. The logical leap is that at least some of the people who are moving the furthest are grandparents. But what’s causing them to move so far?
The same report from NAR shows the top reason people move is to be closer to loved ones (see graph below):
Based on this data, it’s fair to say many grandparents are getting their wish of more quality time with their grandchildren by moving to be closer to them. And after experiencing isolation and loneliness during the COVID pandemic, that’s an especially good thing.
If you’re a grandparent, you know how important your grandchildren are. And you may be willing to sell and move to Roseville California area just to be closer to them. As Vance Cariaga, a journalist at Go Bank Rates, explains:
“Never underestimate the power of grandchildren – especially when it comes to lifestyle and financial decisions. Recent data shows that many baby boomers are relocating further away from home than they used to so they can be closer to their grandbabies.”
