Moving Our Lives Forward With Vision
We walk into our homes with feelings of comfort and familiarity. It feels similar to the warmth of our favorite warm blanket. Most of us have lived in our home or communities for more than ten years. In those years we have watched the value of our homes increase by almost 45%. We have raised our families within that blanket, experienced our lives in loving warmth with family by our side. Younger Boomers ages 51-62 have resided in their current home for the duration of about 12 years or longer. Many have become part of the “Sandwich Generation” caring for parents and the last of our children. Those memories lead to strong feelings of staying in place. Home is where our heart is!
Being flooded with those feelings allow us to push to the back of our hearts the need to transition our lives to meet current needs. How do we identify when the time is right to make a housing change? Most changes occur with life events that change our circumstances. Health issues are the first to bring housing changes. Needing more care than we can accomplish on our own can necessitate an immediate change. Everyone requires the assurances of safety while keeping our independence. Increased assistance in your home may not be an issue but feeling boredom or lonely as you move through daily life make you long for larger community around you. Being active within our community gives new excitement at the prospect of a productive and fulfilling life. If we have grown tired of cleaning your extra bedrooms or the larger yard maintenance, this is a great time to consider smaller living quarters or a no maintenance community where you can spend your time creating in the places you enjoy the most. Ask yourself, how would I like to spend my time?
Residing in our home with safety and enjoyment in our retirement years is the new Boomer’s Adventure. Join us for ideas on how to make that experience the best one yet. Join our informational workshop called Thriving In Place. As a Senior Real Estate Specialist, the one thing I hear most often is “I want to stay in my home.” Thriving In Place helps families increase attention to simple lifestyle changes that make your home move with your style.
