Traverse City, Michigan First on List of 10 Great Boating Towns: To Retire + Play + Thrive!

Monday, June 17th, 2013

With over a half million members, the Boat Owners Association of The United States, should know a thing or two about what makes for a great place for boating people to live.

This article is partly inspired by the recovering U.S. economy and the resurgence of the vacation property and retirement property real estate markets. One fact quoted in the main article is:

“The number of U.S. workers who leave their current hometowns after completing careers may have declined since the 2007-2008 recession, but 16 percent of baby boomers surveyed by the MetLife Mature Market Institute last year still plan to seek new digs once they stop working full-time.”

The intro text about Traverse City reads:

Lake Michigan – Traverse City, MI

“Lovely waterfront town, and a boater’s paradise. Sheltered Grand Traverse Bay empties into northern Lake Michigan. Nearby access to Lake Huron, mountain lakes.”

A couple of vacation property and/or retirement property real estate specific facts include:

  • Waterfront: Neat, well-kept. Substantial publicly owned waterfront
  • Cost of Living: 6.2% below the national average
  • Taxes: 4.25% state income tax; 6% state sales tax; no state inheritance tax or estate tax; low property taxes
