Housing Transitions in Retirement: It’s Your Move
Affordable, accessible, and well-located housing is central to quality of life for people of all ages, but especially as we near retirement age. As the single largest item in most household budgets, housing costs directly affect day-to-day financial security. In addition, the entire concept of what one considers a good life has many meanings. For the most part, people want an active life — physically, mentally and socially — and to serve those wishes, a living environment should offer those amenities. Education, planning and resources are the key to making the best housing choice for you.
