A new poll of recent home buyers and sellers suggests that older people are more selective home shoppers. The National Association of Realtors found that about half of people 58 and older made no compromises during their recent home purchase, compared to only 28 percent of the youngest home buyers who refused to make concessions on their ideal property.

The survey shows that the older a house-hunter, the newer he or she wants the home to be.
