Good morning Conrad. Retirement just doesn't sound that appealing to me, the number of death shortly thereafter just goes up much to high.

Conrad, I thought that Realtors retired when they reached the funeral home! And 62 is only a couple of years older than our average ages!  So probably these retirees retire then get real estate licenses?

The issue w/ real estate and/or owning your own small business/being independent contractor is that you don't have an automatic retirement plan/pension plan that the company is paying for/contributing to.  So, many have no choice.  There will always be those that love what they do and want to continue, but there are many that need to continue and do so full time.

I wonder if the avg age is increasing.

Conrad, that seems young to retire. Maybe they count all the military service people who are "retiring" after 25 years of service but then start their second career?
