Baby boomers looking to downsize to a more manageable home fear their retirement dreams will be “crushed” by the property market.  

Victorian baby boomers were the most affluent, with more than 40 per cent looking to purchase a home for more than $600,000 including 10.9 per cent of them prepared to pay over $1 million.

Affordability was more of a concern in NSW, where more than 60 per cent were either uncomfortable with house prices or being out priced by others in the market, compared to a national average of 49 per cent.
