First-rate health care tops the list of most desired features and amenities that over-50 Americans want in the area where they retire, according to a survey by the Consumer Federation of the Southeast. Affordable housing and a warm climate are next on the list, and respondents say they're willing to move to find the best combination of factors. "The decisions they make about where they will retire will have a huge impact not only on their families' finances but on the communities to which they move," noted the group's president, Walter Dartland.
