The idea of retirement can be daunting, especially if you don’t know where to begin. That’s why we created this checklist for retirement, which covers everything you need to think about before entering retirement, including:

  • Where is your income going to come from?

    Likely, you will have to liquidate some of your assets and savings in order to provide a steady stream of income so you can live comfortably throughout retirement. Selling your home as is for a fair cash offer is a great way to provide a windfall of cash to pay for your move or the monthly costs of a retirement home.

    This checklist for retirement goes over things to consider when planning your finances for retirement.

  • Where will you live?

    Whether you’re planning on buying your dream beachside condo in Florida or moving into assisted living, you’ll need to make a plan for downsizing and selling your home. And, if your parents are retiring and you’re moving your parents into assisted living, you’re probably wondering, ”Where do I begin with selling my parent’s house?” First, you’ll need to decide whether to sell on the retail market with realtors and commissions and inspection fees, or sell as is to a trustworthy wholesale buyer. Selling your home as is can be a good option if you want to sell quickly and save money on realtor commissions.

    No matter where you’re moving in retirement, this checklist for retirement offers tips and tricks for selling your home quickly.

  • Will you work full- or part-time?

    Are you going to finally start that pastry shop you’ve always dreamed about, move your hours at your current job down to part-time or spend your days on the golf course? You’ll need to choose a home or retirement community that supports your dreams and expectations for retirement.

    This checklist gives you questions about your work expectations to ask yourself before you retire.
