Raleigh, NC, December 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Cathy Rosebaugh-Jennings, president of Alterna Home Solutions (www.alternahs.com), has announced that she has expanded her network to include national senior-focused real estate professionals, providing seniors the ability to experience a seamless transition to the Triangle area. Through her network, Cathy has the capability to serve as a resource, not only to seniors moving to the Triangle, but also for adult children who are assisting their parents with the move, whether they are making a purchase or they need assistance entering an age-restricted rental community.
Numbers in North Carolina indicate that the senior population is growing at an unprecedented rate, far faster than any other age group. According to the 2003-2007 North Carolina State Aging Plan, by 2020 North Carolina’s population of adults over 65 will have grown 71 percent from what it was in 2000. By 2030, this population will have grown 129 percent.
“I am excited to expand my connections on a national scale, and happy to provide assistance in a variety of ways as more seniors move to the Triangle,” said Rosebaugh-Jennings. “The Triangle is growing and with many families relocating to N.C. for various reasons, I believe that this network will provide seniors with a great tool to make the move easier.”
“According to SeniorSurvey.com, the senior population is growing at an unprecedented rate, far faster than any other age group, and in another 25 years, more than 20 percent of the total population in most of Europe, Asia, Australia and North America will be at least age 60,” said Marian Ingram of Keller Williams. “By creating this network of national senior-focused real estate professionals, Cathy has begun the process of better assisting our senior population as they come to North Carolina.”
