The kids are long gone, you’re sick of shovelling snow, mowing the lawn, you’re tired of exhausting home maintenance and paying to heat and cool a large house. Why not downsize?
With downsizing however, comes hard decisions. Stay nearby or leave town? Condo or single-family home? Making the wrong move will cost you-and maybe you’ll have to relocate once again. According to a recent survey conducted by Merrill Lynch in entitled “Home in Retirement” the top four reasons for downsizing are: Lower monthly housing costs, larger home is too much work, fewer family members in the household, and want to free up cash from prior home.
