Boomers - Live Well in Cheap Locations

Baby Boomers can Lower their Cost of Living by Relocating

to Cheaper Places in the U.S. Where the Dollar Goes Further

Baby Boomers can stretch their dollars by relocating to a lower cost-of-living area.

One of the most effective steps Baby Boomers can take to live better on a fixed income is to relocate to an area where the cost of living is less.  This can result in dramatic savings without sacrificing your quality of life.  In fact, in many cases the quality of life significantly improves.

Many Baby Boomers live in relatively expensive areas, like San Diego, where home prices are dramatically higher than in the rest of the nation.  Just selling your home and relocating to more affordable areas may allow you to buy a new home for cash and still retain a nice nest egg to supplement Social Security or pension income.  And if the real estate market does not justify selling your residence now, you can always rent or lease it out until times are better.
