The Children Have Flown—Do You Really Need This Much Northern Virginia House?
When your last child leaves home, it’s not unusual to feel a mixture of relief and sadness. You’ve raised them well and they’re out on their own. Suddenly, your house may be feeling a little too big and burdensome. If you’re retired (or close to retirement) you may not want to have all the responsibility of cleaning and maintaining such a big place. Perhaps you’d like to move to the city or find a place close to the grandkids. There are many options available at this stage of your life: active adult communities, condos in the city, smaller single family homes or townhomes. I’d enjoy sitting down with you and helping you weigh your options and how they impact your financial well-being and security.
Getting Ready to Sell Northern Virginia Real Estate
If you’ve lived in your home for a decade or more, its value may have appreciated considerably. You can sell it and use the profits to buy your new home or, if it’s financially feasible, rent it out at market value. I can help evaluate the possibilities by providing a market analysis of the value of your home and give you an idea of the rent you may be able to receive, which can provide a steady stream of income.
