Are You A Bester?
Q. My Realtor just called me a 'bester'. I've never heard the term so I thought I would write you. What does it mean?
A. Most folks have heard the term empty nester. However, the latest trend in real estate for our active adult market is geared towards better housing, better locations, and better quality of life, or more commonly referred to as 'besting' or better nesting. Besting is the time frame between your empty nester and retirement years. With over 75 million baby boomers in the U.S., we're going to see a lot more 'besters' in need of suitable housing in coming years, especially in Florida. So welcome to the world of besting.
