Residents of Barefoot Bay typically fall into the “Senior Sun Seekers” demographic group: retirees, who are married without children. Nearly a third are single-person households. Their money often comes from Social Security, interest, dividends and pensions and they rank high for investments and savings. Most of their income is disposable.
