For the past 30 years, Barbara Corcoran has built a business and a career on knowing where we will live before we even know it ourselves. She's sold her business for an astounding price, has penned a best-selling memoir, and is the national media's go-to person for real estate trends and news. In NEXTVILLE, she turns her keen eye toward predicting "the next big things" in real estate for Boomers as they begin to reach retirement.Barbara identifies the top 8 trends that are changing where (and how) Boomers are retiring--whether it's pursuing passions, living green, finding community, living young in a city or college town, or even staying right in your old home town. Corcoran delivers her signature "Barb's Rules" for choosing real estate that no one can afford to miss. These 77 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 -- who are turning 60 this year at a rate of 8,000+ per day -- are healthier and wealthier than their parents were. And according to a recent study, 60% of these Boomers plan to move to a new home in the next 10 years. zBut most of these folks aren't going to head to a condo in Boca like Grandma did. This group is looking for other options and their location will reflect their passions. Barbara Corcoran will name the places where readers can make the best investment today to ensure a secure, comfortable, and fabulously fun tomorrow. Now in this updated paperback edition, Barbara Corcoran discusses how to survive...and profit from the economic downturn.

I love everything she writes, she is so down to earth and practical and is not afraid to tell you what you need to hear. This was a great book and even though I am in my 40's it's nice to look ahead and know that we can plan now for our 2nd act and see what other roads others have already paved ahead.
Well done Barbara, as always!

It's not Barbara Corcoran's fault that a mortgage crisis blasted us just when the real estate bubble burst. But she can be faulted for ignoring the signs that the bubble was straining to begin with. So I'll give her applause for encouraging us boomers to look deep into what we want to do next with our lives, while turning thumbs down on most of her specific advice.

I got off to a bad start with this book, she offers up a quiz that's supposed to help you get your mind around the type of retirement location or second life career that's best for you. In my case, the answers could not have been less revealing. Her assessment of an even score like mine was basically "read the whole book, as you don't have a clear path anyway." I'm exagerating with that, but that's the way my imagination reacted.

Her basic premise is good. Don't move to Florida or Arizona, park yourself in a retirement community and expect to live out your days playing golf and shuffleboard! You'll hate it! She's a big proponent of creativity and drive, and that's excellent. It's just when she gets into the specifics of where and how that she loses objectivity.

First off, Ms. Corcoran seems to have a serious fixation with taxes. Nothing wrong with that if you're of an anti-tax mindset, but please, I'm not going to move to Panama just because they don't tax Americans as much as the state of Hawaii. Perhaps you feel different, that doesn't make either of us a bad person. :-)

It does cast some of her opinions in a less than favorable light however, when she expresses an economic recommendation that was fine when she wrote the book, but falls flat within the the economic climate of only six months later.

In any case, her basic message it to find your passions and build on them. That is excellent advice that no one can afford to reject. If you're looking for basic encouragement, and you like the self-help genre this is another collection of opinions and advice that you might appreciate. But if you're serious about learning something new, you just might want to wait until you see it at the second hand book fair or garage sale.

I liked the book for some of the unusual and detailed information it provided even if they weren't necessarily places I think I would actually move to. I think Places Rated was more the book I was looking for.

Fun and light reading on the topic of moving after 'retirement.' For example, the analysis of the need to discover passion and purpose and not 'just' play golf. The choices of locations is very limited in that it is almost exclusively in the U.S. Greater range and more detailed cultural offerings would be helpful.

Nothing new and a bit boring!

Barbara has a light and breezy style pointing out issues I hadn't thought of before reading this book. Read It you won't regret it!

This bood was useless to me and offered very little as to where I would want to go to retire. If you took the quiz in the book, I would say you don't have much of a life yourself. It was a ridiculous quiz. The book spoke of places that I would never want to go back to, yet she thought is was a great retirement place. Example. Perth Amboy, NJ. This is got to be the armpit of the USA. It's filthy, extremely old run down homes, 75% Puerto Rican and terrible weather. Not to mention the highest property taxes in the nation. The golf courses she mentions around this area are nice, very expensive and good ol' boys clubs. So lets cap this. She wants me to live in a crapola place, pay high taxes and travel to play golf in places I can't even get in. Just doesn't make sense.
The vital stats that the book offered was missing so many important stats, it was also useless. I would want to see 1. Tax bases: Property tax, state income tax, sales tax, etc. 2. More concise weather stats. 3. Some more information about house hunting, building your own, etc. The book showed sunny days for the first page and a half, then stopped showing them. Seems like someone just gave up researching the other places.
I used to work with a UCLA professor who researched places to retire for about 5 years. His number one choice was New Bern, NC, yet it wasn't even mentioned in the book. I wish that professor would of published his findings.

This is a great book with a lot of good information. This book will also be a great reference book for me as well.
