Read the book! Rightsize Your Home, The Empty Nester’s Guide To A Stress Free Downsize, Chapter 2.
This is a comprehensive section that covers a lot of the things discussed in the Rightsize Your Home Online Workshop, “How can I afford to Rightsize?”.
Choose a financial planner well, don’t do anything without one.
I think it’s important to choose the right one that’s in the downsizing niche and not to try and make these huge financial steps by yourself.
See a planner EARLY, in particular implications on pension, gifting, asset protection in general.
I think the earlier the better. So just planning early and not leaving it too late in the process is a good idea and I think a lot of people put it off.
Understand arrangements and contracts of when and where you are going.
This is particularly important when we’re considering villages so the contracts out there vary quite considerably.
Give the property its best chance to present well, to set you up for a profitable move.
