Senior citizens should be on the top of the minds of developers as much the millennials due to the fact they are looking for the same things in a home and it's location.  Older Americans care just as much about "walkability" and all the services that are available in dense urban neighborhoods as do the Generation X & Millennials home buyers.  A Place for Mom, recently reported that seniors prefer walkability and closeness to urban centers.  Over 50% of older adults that live in a senior apartment like to be able to walk places, while 38% who live alone and 26% that live in assisted living homes.

Older Americans are looking for the type of housing that is close by to their families & friends, as well as their doctors and hospitals.  One other key point that seniors are looking for are low crime areas that allow places that are safe to walk to.  A majority of seniors find that a good public transportation system is somewhat important in their search.  Easy access to shopping especially supermarkets also attract senior home buyers.  Charles Severn who is the head of marketing fro A Place or Mom says that "the data can help inform local politicians and relevant stakeholders  before making choices around zoning and the allocations of resources for public services."
