There are myriad reasons why your current home, as much as you love it, might not be the one most suitable for the next 40 years or so. It might be too far from family, or too big, or too old, or in need of a lot of maintenance. Or any number of other reasons depending upon your individual circumstances.
It is wise to be proactive in this regard so that you aren’t forced into a decision by either health or financial problems. Many people are house rich and cash poor. Other folks really want a single story home. There are options that allow you to keep your current home, like reverse mortgages, equity sharing, and others and we will review those with you. But sometimes selling the old homestead and moving to a more manageable or less expensive home turns out to be the best option. Talk to us about it. We are not in the business of convincing you to do anything you don’t wish to do. We’ll explain all the options available, analyze your situation with you and let you decide both what you want to do and when. Then we can recommend our fabulous sorting and packing service, a great moving company, and many other services to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Call or write and request a complimentary copy of our 32 page guidebook, “Downsizing Made Easy.” It has food for thought, suggestions and checklists that will help you a lot.
We also can recommend bonded, honest folks who will help every step of the way; sorting, packing, moving, unpacking, cleaning, staging, marketing the home, moving sales, locating the replacement home, bridge financing, and more.
