For virtually everyone – and especially for the long-time homeowners – moving is a life-changing event.

People are already having a life-changing event, and that’s what is causing them to move. Just getting older is life-changing! Selling the house and moving is the SECOND life-changing event, and the double whammy is a lot to digest for those who have settled into their comfortable lifestyle for the last 10, 20, or 30+ years.

Things to Handle (all of which can be a monster by themselves):

  • Leaving the comfort of home and move to a new neighborhood….and maybe a new state.
  • Having to go through “the stuff”.
  • Getting comfortable with the huge numbers.
  • Surrendering to paying six-figures in capital-gains taxes.
  • Finding a realtor who adds value.
  • Finding a suitable house.

If you already live in a house that will be suitable for the rest of your life (i.e., one-story in a good area that doesn’t need much work), then enjoy! But if you know you have another move to make, don’t wait too long.

Moving is mentally, emotionally, and physically demanding…..and you want to do it when you still have your wits about you. Generally-speaking, you want to be settled by the time you are 75 years old. Because it could take years to handle the six things above, you want to get started by the time you are 70 years old.

It means that if you were born in 1953 or before, and you know you have another move coming, then you should call me today and we’ll get started! Let’s do it!

Don’t wait too long!
