Scottsdale Real Estate: Retiring or thinking about retirement in Scottsdale. The coming silver tsunami likely to bring many retirees to Scottsdale.

Here Comes the Silver Tsunami.

In 2010 there were 40 million people in the U.S. that were sixty-five or older according to the Adminstration on Aging, a division within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This number is projected to grow to 54 million in 2020 and 72 million by 2030. Some of those sixty-five or older will retire. And often what comes with retirement is a move. The move be downsizing into a smaller home with less maintenance and/or moving to a state with a warmer climate such as Scottsdale, Arizona.

CNN Money in 2013 rated Scottsdale as one of the best eight small cities for retirement if you had a nest egg.

Recently, on I interviewed Kerri Calidora of Ventana Fine Properties located in Scottsdale. One of her real estate specialties is working with sellers who are retiring or will be, and who want to downsize their home. She has a team of downsizers to help those making this transition. She has ideas on attractively presenting a property and all its features. Also, she is familiar with retirement communities in Scottsdale. She says often when someone is coming up to eighty years of age they may prefer one of Scottsdale’s retirement communities. And as Director of Relocation at Ventana Fine Properties, she helps buyers in finding homes that are relocating to Scottsdale.

Kerri may be contacted at or 480-236-3087.
