The reality is, as we move thru the different stages of life our housing needs change. I meet with many retirees who are struggling with coming to terms with making a change. They know it is inevitable, they will have to make a move but is always easier to deal with it when it is “somewhere down the road”.
After living in a home for decades, raising the family there and still being very comfortable in their home, many are reluctant to move. They love their neighbors and the neighborhood.
