The Changing Priorities of 21st Century Retirement Living
Skiing trips instead of shuffleboard, laptops instead of feet on tabletops: Today’s retirees are playing and living under a much different set of priorities than previous generations. Words like choice, flexibility, fit and active are much more the 21st century vernacular than comfortable, relaxed and passing the time.
Downsizing Six Months and Counting
For thousands of people, moving to smaller quarters is “out there,” – sometime in the future. “I’m not ready yet” is what most of us say. For many of us, what we really mean is “I can’t stand the thought of getting ready to move.” On the other hand, for most people, their home is their largest single asset, so maximizing what it will sell for is important. There are many things we can’t control. We can’t control what the mortgage interest rates will be when we sell our home. We can’t control what the real estate market will be like when we sell our home. But we can control how ready our home is to go on the market, and the best investment is starting now, even if your move is months or years away. The key is “working smart.”
Downsizing or Rightsizing – Is it Right for You?
