Presentation 2: Tips for Choosing Your Next Home in Retirement
For many, making a plan and choosing where to retire to is a daunting and financially stressful endeavor. There was never one place to go to get all the information you need. Jill Kearney has taken her decades of personal and professional experience and condensed it down into a one-hour seminar that starts to debunk myths and the limiting beliefs about your home and lifestyle options in retirement. She asks some big questions: Where is your happy place? Our preferences for locations are different (city, country, coastline) and the preference of how close (or not) to be to family can be vastly different, one person to another.
What do you need in a home and how big does it really have to be? Can selling and moving into an RV be a good strategy? (Answer is “could be” but it’s not likely a 30-year strategy!) How do you minimize personal space while maximizing amenities offered in a community setting? And she answers your big questions, too: What’s the difference between an Independent Living Community and a CCRC and a 55+ Community? What happens when I – or my partner – need a higher level of care? At the end, you’ll have a greater sense of your options and how to approach this decision so it positively impacts your happiness, finances, and future wellbeing.
