Outta here! Garden State residents look to retire in greener pastures

“Health problems and consumption of health-care services increase dramatically with age, and since we are living longer in retirement, the more imperative it is to have easy access to health-care services and facilities. That factor weighs heavily on retirement location decisions,” said James W. Hughes, distinguished professor and dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.

Hughes has stated that for seniors and retirees, it is simple to cash out of high-value New Jersey housing and secure much more affordable (and newer) housing in other states.
