“As 77 million Baby Boomers move into their senior years,” says Khemis, “real estate is becoming a whole new ballgame. Almost every family will need to care for someone at some point, but few homes lend themselves to in-home care.” Houses and apartments that are made ready will be in high demand, she asserts.

The live version of the course, “The Long-Term Care Crisis in America: Understanding the Trends That Will Help You Prosper in Challenging Times,” will be held for the first time from 9 AM to 1 PM on Friday, December 9, at MBA University, MBA Housing Center, 335 116th Avenue SE, Bellevue, WA. Tuition is $100 for members of the Master Builders Association, and $125 for non-members. Homeowners as well as industry pros are welcome. Continuing education credit is offered for real estate, insurance, financial, and legal professionals.
