Buying a Home During Retirement

You've put in years of hard work, and now it's time to relax and make the most of your retirement years. Sometimes that means purchasing a new home. Whether you want to downsize or relocate to a warmer climate, there are many things retirees need to consider when purchasing a home in retirement. The following are seven tips our REALTORS® recommend you use as a guideline before making your decision.

  1. Consider Your Costs
    Property taxes, sales taxes, utility bills, HOA dues, maintenance, and general upkeep can amount to hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per month. Take these expenses into account and discuss them with your accountant when calculating how much home you can afford.
  2. Look Closely at the Layout
    Most retirees prefer a single-story house or condo when they retire. These are easier to clean and maintain. When choosing a home, you will want to choose one that fits the lifestyle you anticipate and isn't too large or too small for your needs.
