Cliche? Not merely rhetorical. In fact, mature Homeowners are "downsizing" and selling homes that are admittedly too large and using the proceeds accumulated as a result of enormous built up (and underutilized) equity to move into housing that better "fits" their modern lifestyles, to include ready acccess to entertainment, restaurants, and recreation.
Truth be told, "new senior" modern lifestyles are abundant and inviting with a shift from single family home with yard work and maintenance and repairs to carefree condominium living. Extremely doable. Just takes a bit of courage (there's that word again) to venture out and see what options there are (and there are plenty).
If you have given even a fleeting thought to selling the "family home" and starting anew to live out your remaining golden years - please send a text, an email or give me a call. I'd be most pleased to share what knowledge I have regarding the marketing of your home and acquisition of a new, downsized arrangement.
You've heard the lament: "I wish I had ..." As noted American Philosopher and Major League Hall of Fame Member Yogi Berra said so aptly:
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it." Maybe this is one fork you just have to take (or at least explore).
