If you decide to sell your home to move into a retirement village, there are a few things to consider.
Before selling, it’s a good idea to see how the market is travelling and look at the value of properties in your local newspaper or online.
Speak to a few real estate agents that allow you to compare prices and estimations on your home.
Get organised by writing a list, a checklist will allow you to keep on top of things and make the process of moving less stressful.
To start your checklist, you may want to list the things needed to tie up loose ends at your current residence. For example if you are renting, give the landlord adequate notice that you are vacating the property.
Look at what you will be taking with you and what you might want to put into storage or give away.
Consider if you will be packing and unpacking yourself or getting a removalist? Compare reputable removalist prices and organise finance and dates with the company.
