Homeowners And Age In Seattle

Since the bubble in 2005, the number of homeowners have grown and is at a record high in 2015. As of 2015 100 percent of home owners in the King County that has seen growth in numbers are of the group aged 55 and over while the biggest decline was seen in the 35-55 age group. You may ask how is this possible but there are many different factors that made this happen, for instance, the baby boomer generation has been homeowners before hand and has now aged to where they are in the next bracket which causes the statistics to move up as well as many older people are coming to Seattle to retire or relocate. As for the 35-55 age group, they were in the mist of the big bubble and while some prevailed many lost their homes and with that effecting their credit it may become difficult to purchase another home, along with the rising rents.
