Tips for Finding A Retirement Property

Reaching the time where you’re ready to buy a retirement home is an exciting moment. We’re offering some tips on finding your perfect retirement property!

First and foremost, you should always work with a realtor when searching for a home. They will be able to help you identify your goals as well as your budget. Additionally, they may open your mind up to something that you weren’t considering before. This could be anything from downsizing to searching in the suburbs when you had originally planned on staying within the city.

Since retirement is supposed to be the time to catch-up on relaxing and being at peace, focus on low-maintenance. You don’t want to spend those vacation years worrying about repairs. Being retired may fool you that you’ll want to do those things, but no matter how capable or spry you are- it’s never fun to deal with stress regarding your home.

Just as retirement isn’t the time for stressing, it’s also not the time to jump from house-to-house, so look for something long-term. As always, keep your realtor in the loop on your wants and needs & talk to your team if you have any questions.
