Life's Changes and Challenges
It is estimated that, by 2024, one in four people in the United States will be 60 or
older. People are living longer. At some point, many of us will sell their homes, whether it be a choice to downsize, or because circumstances force them to make a move.
By the age of 55 or 60, most people have purchased or sold a home and just about everyone has been through a move. But, after 55, real estate transactions and even moving, are more complicated. If children were raised in the home, the thought of leaving the place where some of the dearest memories were made can be painful.
Also, the logistics of preparing a family home for a sale and downsizing a lifetime's worth of possessions can be daunting. Moreover, the financial and tax implications
of selling a home can affect that long-awaited (and much deserved)
retirement or change estate planning.
