Home in Retirement - Laffey Real Estate

At Laffey Real Estate, our real estate agents have helped thousands of clients make the right real estate moves to support their retirement lifestyle. For many, that means downsizing to a smaller, more manageable home.

But if you already own your home, deciding what to do next is a little bit more complicated.

For decades, people have used their homes as a durable vessel to create financial value. About 75% of the average America's wealth is stored as equity value in the home. Selling a home may empower you with a substantial infusion of cash, but it is not the right move for everybody.

Current homeowners can generate income with their home or even access equity without selling. So, how do you know whether you should sell or stay? Keep these factors in mind as you plan your decision.

Home Inspection Hints - Laffey Real Estate

If you've got a home inspection coming up, it's completely normal to feel a bit nervous. After all, nobody enjoys having strangers poke and prod around their home, looking for problems. Even if you think you know your home inside and out, you never know what they might find. 

Our real estate agents talk to nervous sellers about this all the time. The best advice they give is to remain calm and make sure you're prepared. This will give you the best chance of having a successful inspection. Here are a few things you'll want to consider doing.

  1. Decide How to Deal with Known Issues
    If you're aware of your home's problems, you cannot conceal them from the potential buyer. You'll need to decide whether you want to fix them before your inspection or disclose them. Your real estate agent can help you weigh the pros and cons and make a decision. It's also a good idea to have a game plan for how you'll handle any additional issues that may come up during your inspection.
