One of the most common reasons why I hear people are selling your house for retirement is to take on a more “mobile lifestyle!” We all have that friend or family member who has sold the house, and moved into the motorhome to travel! For many Americans, (my parents included!) this is a great dream to have, and very attainable! To sell everything and live an an RV just seems so adventurous!

Another common reason why I hear about people selling everything and retiring is the ability to travel cheaply and live abroad.  Simply “selling everything and starting over” is very appealing to some! As Americans are living longer, the thought of being stuck to one town, and one home, for some is just not something they want to do anymore!  Just because our parents lived and died in the homes they bought, doesn’t mean that we do!

When Should Seniors Sell Their Home?

This is an intensely personal question.  For many, there are a lot of memories hidden within the walls of their home.  As an Investing Realtor, I have seen countless people who have told me story after story of love and conflict in a home. After awhile, you begin to learn that people’s connection to their home is more than where they “lay their head at night”.  People identify with the neighborhood, the people, and the home itself.

So the tough question remains, When should  seniors sell their home?  In my opinion, it is always best to leave on a high note.  In other words, when things are at their best.  The worst situations for the elderly homeowner, and their family is when the homeowner has to move, because they are incapable of taking care of themselves.  We all know that one person in our family who says “they are gonna have to carry me out!” 

With the advances of modern medicine.. it is more likely that you are to need hospital care long before hospice!

This being said, it is a good idea to examine the local real estate market statistics  when considering selling your home.  If there is one thing I have learned in 23 years of being a Real Estate Broker and Investor… what goes up.. comes down!  It isn’t always true that “real estate values always go up.”  If you are considering selling your house for retirement, you must consider this fact!

Just because you bought the home back in xxxx year, does not mean that your home will automatically be worth more yyyy years later!  Consider the following.. during the real estate recession in 2008, the primary cause of home devaluation was the amount of foreclosure and short sale properties that destroyed Tucson Home Values.   It is easy to see how a ripple effect can quickly effect the values of your home, and the amount you can receive from it!
