Do you consider yourself an empty nester, baby-boomer, senior or downsizer? None of us like to admit that we might be eligible for certain discounts, but for our purposes, when we refer to empty-nesters, we simply mean individuals over the age of 55.You’re in good company. More than 90,000 residents of Ada and Canyon County alone are over the age of 55.
Since dealing with our own parents’ transitions—and then our own!—into empty nesters, we are caring, pro-active and knowledgeable.
Like many, you may have discovered that your housing and real estate preferences have changed. Is your home as functionally suitable—physically, financially or both—as it once was? It may be time to find or build something that caters to your needs today, while allowing you the time and resources to do the things that you’ve always wanted to do.
Perhaps your current home can be converted into a rental and investment property. In this way you may be able to maintain a lifestyle you hadn’t considered possible in the past.
For a small portion of the population, retirement includes your present home in the center of it. We applaud your planning and the sense of satisfaction that you can now enjoy.
For most of us though, our present home will not work in the long-term. Is it primarily a financial question? Is your dilemma one of accessibility and/or proximity to basic amenities, health care providers or family? We’ve discovered that in the blink of an eye, our priorities have shifted.
