Our current home requires too much maintenance
We are not utilizing the space effectively any longer
We have 2 vacant bedrooms that we use as storage for our adult children
We are really tired of those stairs
Why Sell Your Home and Downsize?

MYTHS about money and the cost of downsizing:
We have to sell BEFORE we buy our retirement home
When working with us, we help you structure your move, so you get to buy your next home FIRST!
We have to get an expensive Bridge Loan to make this work
You do not need to pay the exorbitant fees that come with securing a bridge loan
We can help you structure the transaction to allow you to qualify for both mortgages - it's temporary and you get the same interest rates once you move
Our equity is tied up in the home, so we have to liquidate our stock portfolio to secure our down payment?
You do not need to pay the penalties that comes with time away from the market
You can temporarily leverage a 401(k) loan with ZERO penalty
A HELOC on a 2nd home can provide the down payment - it too is temporary
