A recent realtor.com survey gauged the interests and motivations driving the buying decisions of each generation. We've already broken down the specifics of Millennials, Gen Xers and Young Boomers. And now we look at Old Boomers (ages 55 to 64), who, as our tables below illustrate, are in a position to put preferences ahead of obligations.

The Merrick Manor Luxury Residence condominium project has received the much-anticipated building permit.
Construction of this exceptional, centrally located building in Coral Gables, will begin shortly.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) January 18, 2016
Today is a marvelous day at The Astor Companies. Astor is delighted to announce that the much-anticipated building permit has been received. Major construction of Merrick Manor Luxury Residences will begin on February 1st, 2017. The construction team has started the pile-work on the building site, and high voltage crews have started to remove the overhead utility lines. This project has been long in the planning and permitting stages. It has overcome many obstacles. However, due to the incredible persistence of Henry Torres, president of The Astor Companies and his team, the project has stayed on track and is moving forward. At every turn, officials at the City of Coral Gables have provided valuable guidance and assistance in going through the process. The Astor Companies owes a debt of gratitude to these officials and the leadership of the City of Coral Gables, for the hard work and effort involved in a project of this magnitude. Without their assistance and confidence in this project, it would not have been possible to advance to this consequential milestone.
Merrick Manor is a 10-story contemporary Mediterranean Villa-style condominium project designed by architectural firm Behar & Font, with the lobby and all interior community areas designed by world-renowned design company, Interiors by Steven G.
