Even if your retirement seems far away, it’s never too early to think about retirement funds. For many people, retirement means selling their current home.
Data from a recent survey show that more than half of the baby boomer generation plan to sell their current homes as part of their retirement. If selling your home is on your retirement agenda, a little thought now about how to get the best price can make a big difference when it’s time to put it on the market.
Here are some small steps that can pay off in a big way:
According to O’Neill, a worn roof is “a huge turn-off” to potential buyers and “makes people predisposed to find even more things they don’t like.”
Another upside: roof renovations can be very affordable. For example, the Value Collection Lifetime Designer Shingles from GAF (www.gaf.com), North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, provide an instant upgrade to your home without the cost and hassle of a major indoor renovation.
Address major safety issues, such as electrical capacity and boiler condition, before putting your home on the market, and you’ll be that much more appealing to interested buyers.
