Your family home has served you well. It’s been the site of many Thanksgiving dinners, birthday parties, and summer barbecues. It’s where your kids learned to take their first steps, laughed until they cried, and spent many nights studying for the next big test. It’s been everything you ever hoped your home could be.
Now that your kids have moved out with their own families, though, the large home starts feeling a little too big. You don’t use all the space anymore, but you still have to spend time cleaning those rooms. The energy costs can be high, especially when you think about how you’re heating and cooling rooms nobody is using.
Sometimes, it starts getting hard to physically move about the house. It’s troublesome to climb stairs to get to your bedroom, and your body just can’t handle spending hours in the yard weeding and mowing.
You need a new solution. Something smaller. Something more manageable.
Many couples decide to downsize in their retirement years. If this sounds like an attractive option to you, it’s time to think about how you can make the most of your move. Read More
