The 10,000 baby boomers who are turning 65 every day in America are affecting the housing market and how cities are planned, The Atlantic Cities reported  on Wednesday. 

Older Americans are already affecting what developers provide, said Terry Holzheimer, director of economic development for Arlington County, Va.

Think in-fill housing, more housing in walkable areas, and more pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods with lots of services and amenities, he said.

 

Boomers’ children will also affect the housing market as they move from renting to buying.
