3 Tips to Buy a Home for Retirement February 14, 2018

3 Tips to Buy a Home for Retirement, Red Wing, Minnesota

Once you retire, you need a house that’s perfect for your golden years. Whether it’s time to downsize or you want to get some well-earned space outside of town, it’s time to buy a home just for you. The real estate agents at Lawrence Realty Inc have helped many residents find their dream property in Red Wing, MN, and the surrounding areas, and they share a few tips for finding the right post-retirement abode.

3 Tips to Keep in Mind When You Buy a Home for Retirement

1. Consider Single-Level Living

buy a homeEven if you get up and down the stairs easily right now, that may change as you get older. For this reason, a single-level home — or at least a house with all the main living areas and a bedroom on the first floor — is the best choice for a retiree. Limiting the amount of stairs your home has will make tasks easier as you get older.

2. Look Into Retirement Communities

Senior communities are an excellent choice for some people. Retirement communities are usually reserved for people 55 years or older, so you’ll be surrounded by people with a similar lifestyle to yours. These unique opportunities allow you to live independently while enjoying the amenities the community offers, such as hosting activities and doing yardwork for you.

3. Don’t Forget About Transportation

At some point, you may not be able to drive yourself around. Make a plan for when that happens. You may want to live in or near a city so you can rely on public transportation for grocery shopping or doctor’s appointments. If you have family close by you can depend on, living further away from a city is more plausible.

To ensure you buy a home you’ll enjoy throughout retirement, work with the staff at Lawrence Realty Inc. They have served the Red Wing area for almost 70 years and have a full team of agents ready to assist you. They’ll advise you on what properties meet your needs and guide you through the purchasing process. Contact them at (651) 388-4745 and browse their online listings to get started.
