Clearly that would not be realtors. Average age of realtors is 56 according to NAR.
Well, 60 is the new 30 . . . it's my story and I am sticking to it!
Wow, I can't wait
Panama City, FL
Well, I was close at 63. Moi? Not retiring... to me retiring is like early death!
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 Allen It is soon to retire at 62.
I should already be retired. I won't be one of those agents that works on into their 70's and 80's. I wil leave it to the younger generation.
I didn't know the average age of retirement. I need to get to work.
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?
Clearly....they don't loveb what they do as much as all of us !
Many will be wishing they had waited...but if they can afford it...good for them
Retire at 62, with great pensions and benefits. Those would be Government employees.
No 66 now for full retirement
Wow, did not guess that! I think I was close though in the mid to upper 60s. Of course, technically I did retire from IT and the corporate life last year and I do this for fun.
Wow, that surprises me!
Damn, I missed it and hope to raise that average!
Conrad Allen That surprised me. I thought the recession hurt a lot of people's retirement plans.
Evidently, I waited too long.
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.
Great info to know about our neighbours.
Conrad Allen - so we can start getting our social security at 62....how cool is that!
I was off the mark as well.
I wasn't too far off.
i was not close since I am still working.
I was off by 10 I think.
I thought it was 65 or 67 Conrad.
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?
Had no idea. A
I got that right. Social security kicks in then. Corporate America had a pension plan then.
I stopped listing homes at 58....
