For active adults, 55+, the key to a happy stress-free lifestyle involves two crucial moves. Rightsizing their home, and eliminating unexpected expenses that can throw a wrench into the best-laid plans for retirement fun.
Rightsizing is simply the process of moving from what you have to what you need. For some, that may mean moving to a smaller home, but in a more holistic approach, rightsizing becomes a process of looking beyond the size of one’s home. Consider all aspects of your lifestyle from how you spend your time; life’s greatest treasure, to how you currently spend your money. When you put pen to paper, you might be surprised to learn how many hours you typically spend maintaining your current home. Ask yourself if that time might be more enjoyable spent doing something you love to do. Do you have a hobby, or would you like to travel? Are there family members that would relish a little more time with you? Next, examine your budget, especially the expenses of maintenance, repairs, insurance, and property taxes. Perhaps those are dollars that could be put to work in a different area. Deciding to become a renter rather than a homeowner means that there are no more lists of repairs, and the yard is someone else’s chore. Ditto to the tax collector, and your homeowner’s insurance agent! Selling a home and investing the proceeds produces income that could pad a monthly budget, and further increase the possibilities.
Eliminating the Unexpected
Who doesn’t love a good surprise? Surprises are great when it involves visits from friends or family, a thoughtful gift, or a financial windfall. Surprises aren’t so much fun when it comes in the form of a broken hot water heater that has leaked, an A/C or furnace that has reached the end of its life, or an expensive roof needing to be replaced. Of course, for the active adult 55+ renter, these budget busting catastrophes will never spoil the party. With so much uncertainty in the world today, it’s comforting to know that there are options that allow costs to be predictable.
