Why some homeowners are taking a different approach to an “early” retirement.
Everyone has certain dreams for their retirement. For some, this dream entails letting go of your home and belongings and traveling the world without holding back. For others retirement brings to mind visions of days out on a boat, spending more time in the garden and rotating between homes as you get to know your grand-kids. Whatever your goals are, retirement is a time that many people look forward to. This is a period of your life when you call the shots. There is no pressure to work, no place you have to be, no goals you are working to meet—at least that is the ideal situation.
The problem is that so many people put off their retirement as they wait for the premier opportunity they’ve dreamed of. In Jacksonville, property sales take time, and there is no way to know if the type of Florida foreclosures that are available right now will be ready for purchase a few years from now when you are ready to purchase.
Some Florida homeowners are taking advantage of the current housing market trends by purchasing their future retirement homes now. This doesn’t mean they are retiring early. Instead, a lot of people are taking advantage of rental property management services and are renting out their future retirement homes to those looking for housing solutions now. This is a much more affordable way for many adults to purchase the retirement home they have dreamed of, as the rental income can supplement the cost of owning another home.
Is a retirement home something that you look forward to in your future? If so, then it might be wise to talk with a real estate specialist now to find out how purchasing a retirement home early on will benefit you financially. Once you purchase your retirement home, you can spend the rest of your time focusing on how else you want to spend the years you’ve set aside for enjoyment.
