We know how hard it must be to move you or your loved one out of the home they have been living in for 30, 40 or maybe even 50 years. Perhaps your parents are relatively healthy and don’t have too many issues with mobility yet, so they do not want to leave their home for an independent living facility. Over the years, they have been hardworking homeowners who have enjoyed a cozy living room, garden, and kitchen; but how much is that home costing them? After crunching the numbers, you may be surprised to learn “Home Sweet Home” is gobbling up all of their retirement savings. Their next move will be a good one to consider. Here are four good reasons:
- Watch out for pesky monthly maintenance and homeowner fees. These include lawn and exterminator services. They can really add up.
- Major repairs often affect older homes and involve a multitude of expenses such as roof repairs, exterior painting, wood rot repair, and window replacement. These repairs add up fast and can often involve thousands of dollars!
- Be aware of your own involvement and high stress levels from repair bills. It takes you away from work and takes a good deal of your time. There are numerous calls with multiple contractors, as well as being constantly involved to supervise the contractor work and answer questions.
- Stress will affect your rest and the body’s immunity to repair and restore cells. You may never get over that lingering cough or flu during the winter months because of stress and lack of sleep.
Your Next Move understands completely what you’re going through and we’re here to help. We know you value your privacy and your parent’s independence. We support that and we promise we can help locate a facility that meets your needs. At an independent living facility residents come and go as they please while enjoying weekly housecleaning, laundry services, activities, trips, and dining plans. There are no more lawns to mow and no more flights of stairs to climb!
We’ll also take charge of selling the home so they can transition easily into the independent living facility. Our expert real estate relocation team will coordinate the sale of the home, locally or anywhere in the country. We also provide a Broker Market Analysis and review these results to determine the best possible price to list the home.
Let us help you eliminate unnecessary housing costs so Mom and Dad and other loved ones can really enjoy their retirement years. Contact Your Next Move today! We truly want to help.
