Reasons to Buy a Move-in-Ready Retirement Home
Homebuyers of all ages often prefer to buy move-in-ready homes these days, thanks largely to busy lifestyles that put a serious crimp in the amount of time people can spend on home renovations. If you’re retired or nearing retirement age and scouting for a new home, you may anticipate having more time to spend on home remodeling—but is that really something you want to do? After all, you probably want to relax and have fun after a long work career. So, unless DIY home improvements are your passion or you enjoy shopping for contractors, you’ll likely be happier with a move-in-ready retirement home than a fixer-upper.
Even if you’ve always spent your spare time on home renovations and you’re pretty handy with a hammer, it’s important to remember that as you grow older, you may not feel up to performing all the physical labor you were accustomed to when you were younger. Not only that, but purchasing a retirement home that needs significant renovations can also lead to unpleasant surprises that can put a big dent in your wallet. This is another good reason to buy a move-in-ready retirement home, as you’ll have a reasonable expectation that you won’t have to sink a large chunk of your life’s savings into making your home livable.
