I sold a new home in an over 55 community to a gentleman from NY who was 96. He was young at heart and could run circles around me. He got a mortgage and closed easily. He was a Yankees fan and we had a nice rivalry. He was good spirited for a Yankees fan as they are not always so nice to us Red Sox fans. He got me Yankees cupcakes and i swapped his Yankees flag for a Red Sox flag for the afternoon.

I just helped a couple in their mid 80's purchase a condo Praful Thakkar but if I really think about it I bet I could come up with an even older buyer.

She was 84 and this was in the days where everyone represented the seller. She bought a low priced condo and it was her first home.

It was not my job to "help" her get a lower price or money for deficiencies...

I felt guilty and she is one of the reasons that I became an exclusive buyer broker.

My oldest client was 92, she asked me to sell her house because she was moving in an assisted living facility. In Scottsdale, this is not unusual, as many people move to Scottsdale to retire. So they buy when retired, so you have an older buyer clientele, and they sell when they can no longer live on their own or scaling down to a much smaller place.
