Read our article about “downsizing”

SOME RANDOM POINTS TO PONDER:

  1. Does my current home meet my future requirements?
  2. Is my home too small or too large? Should I opt for one floor/bungalow style?
  3. Will my current home meet my changing future health needs?
  4. Do I wish to be in a different location? (Closer to shopping, public transport, medical or other care facilities. In the country with lots of space, peace and serenity on a pristine lake. A condo in downtown close to more activities and social interaction. A location closer to or further from family and friends.)
  5. Is the ability to lock it and leave it so I can spend winters away or travel extensively a factor?
  6. If I sell how much equity should I free up to meet my retirement goals?
  7. Do I wish to sell my current home or rent it? (Maybe you wish to downsize and buy a place in Florida.)
  8. Is the availability of assisted living services a factor?
  9. Do I wish to move in with relatives and/or share accommodation.
  10. If I do not relocate is it feasible to renovate my current home to meet future requirements? Can I afford to stay in my current home?
  11. Comparative cost of maintaining your current home with that of newer homes, smaller homes, apartments or condos. (Expenses to consider: Taxes; Utilities; cleaning; repairs & maintenance inside and out; transportation; insurance; renovations.)
