So you’ve made the decision to move to the lovely, new retirement community nestled in a tree grove by the lake – and a golf course? Sounds idyllic to most retirees, right? But what about the family home you’ve lived in for years, raised the kids there and have major investments you’d like to recoup at least in part?
That’s not to say you and your spouse won’t sell the family home, but it would be nice to have some time and options to feel confident that you’re making the best decision (and getting the best price).
What do you do?
There’s always the option to rent it out and enjoy the extra funds. But do you really want to be a landlord? And do you realize the time and degree of difficulty involved in being a landlord? After all, isn’t the idea to take it easy, play some golf and enjoy some relaxation?
In the long run, maybe selling the family home is the best decision. But that takes time and there will, no doubt be repairs and upgrades needed even if it’s in immaculate condition right now.
Whether you rent it out or sell, there is an easy solution to managing your family home property.
