I was amazed when I read this in the Omaha World-Herald: “Baby Boomers retired in large numbers—the generation born between 1946 and 1964—handed in their resignations at record rates in 2020. On average, 2 million boomers have retired each year since 2011, according to an analysis by Pew Research Center. But in 2020, that number rose to 3.2 million people. Researchers speculate the pandemic might have sped up retirement decisions for some.”
With retirement came the idea of moving. “Most retirees make their decision about where to move based on where their children live. However, if the couple doesn’t have children, they don’t feel the need to live close to their immediate family. They want their dream retirement home. Usually, this home is near or on a golf course, a beach or warm-weather destination.” Florida has ten cities that draw retirees’ attention. Baby Boomers Retired in Large Numbers
If moving is a possibility, be prepared. Get a Current Home Appraisal. Make sure you know exactlyhow much your home is worth before you sell it or put it on the market. Then Consult an experienced real estate agent, as they can pull comparable properties for sale in your area in addition to properties that have sold recently to come up with an accurate estimate.
The next step involves Taking Time to Organize, Store and Purge. If you have lived in a house for many years, you accumulate a lot of stuff. It will take you a while. The word you see most often is “declutter.”
Invest in Small Repairs and Curb Appeal. Make buyers find your home attractive. You can fix any obvious flaws cheaply, paint to freshen the appearance and do yard work. For many people retiring, the home that they live in is a large chunk of the retirement nest egg, and you want to make sure that you maximize the proceeds when you go to sell.
