If you are of the fortunate group that waited out the housing slump, then you just might be enjoying a renewed sense of confidence. The kids who have been living with you since graduating college are looking forward to starting new jobs and leaving the nest, again. You also might just have some nice home equity built up.
So now what do you do? You’re not sure you’re ready for condo living. But you’d like the freedom to come and go, leaving those maintenance chores, such as lawn cutting and snow removal, to someone else. You also still want the room for the kids to come back and visit-briefly. Having the freedom of built up home equity now allows you sell your home and consider an active adult community. You get the benefits of house living without many of the homeowner headaches.
