Leaving a house full of memories can be an emotional process. When it comes time to downsize, letting go of a large home and moving on to something smaller is easier said than done. But there are steps you can take to make the transition to your new home easier and more efficient.
Where to move is a big decision no matter your age. When it comes to your golden years, there is a need for more attention to detail. Important information about the interior of a home and the community and concern for your finances are key factors for consideration. For example, you may decide that you need a more accessible bathroom, but depending on how much work is needed, you’ll have to factor the costs into your budget (the average cost of a bathroom remodel is $8,000-$10,000).
Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, internet searches are the best way to get a head start in the hunt for a new home. This way, you’ll be able to gauge the affordability of a desired neighborhood. For example, if you’re looking to move to Bend, you’ll find in your search that the average sale price of homes in that area has been $475,000 over the last month. Selling your current home can certainly help with expenses; however, a long distance move requires serious thought.
