Congratulations! If you’re reading this, there’s a very good chance that you’ve recently made a very big decision — you’re getting ready for retirement! Making the move to a retirement living community like Viamonte at Walnut Creek represents the next exciting chapter of your life — so how do you prepare for it? Once you’ve made the choice to move, the next step is selling your home. While the initial urge may be to sell it as quickly as possible in order to pay the entry fee into your new community, what’s most important is doing what’s needed to get the most out of your sale. If that means applying for a bridge loan, or possibly moving first and then selling, then consider those kinds of options. As with any move, this can be a process that involves several steps. What sets this move apart, however, is that now you must consider how to downsize for retirement. Don’t worry though, downsizing for retirement is actually a highly worthwhile opportunity to clear out some of the items you no longer need so you can enjoy all of the things and people that truly matter most. Of course, downsizing is only one of several steps you’ll need to take when selling your home. There are a number of things you’ll want to consider and do before you put your house up for sale. That’s why we’ve put together this helpful list of five things realtors and industry experts suggest doing before that FOR SALE sign hits your lawn.
