English term or phrase: empty nesters
Definition from springhillfloridarealestateonline.com:
Potential buyers who have raised their families and want to move into a smaller home.

Example sentence(s):
  • Travel marketers who consider online buying to be an activity limited to younger early adopters would be wise to expand their targeting to include affluent empty nesters. iMedia Communications, Inc.
  • In many instances empty nesters are no longer content to remain in the same home from marriage to retirement, and our brokers are seeing this impact in their local markets. Realogy
  • In the shorter term, and considering the current house sales market, empty-nesters may still be able to move without losing out financially by simply letting out their larger homes either privately or through a social housing provider, thereby creating an income to enable them to rent a more manageable, purpose-built, energy-efficient retirement property. propertyweek.com
