As a healthy "young" babyboomer and being a full time realtor who is involved in a variety of volunteer activities, the conversation often turns to someone who is planning a transition of where they live. They may want to downsize to a simpler lifestyle or buy a bigger house because their kids have moved back home or they want to live with their kids and want to combine equities to buy a larger home to accomodate their needs. This can be overwhelming. Memories of where their children grew up, holiday traditions that materialized, home is now going to be a new adventure for many and a challenge for others.
Because of these conversations, I have decided to research the various options to make their transition in housing a smooth adventure.
As a babyboomer, it is important to consider factors when planning a move:
- Access to health care
- What type of recreation facilities is close, golf, health club etc.
- Social activities, Civic organizations, garden club, book club, dance lessons
It's important to look at the ability to "get around" versus the convenience of amenities that are critical to one's quality of life. As a babyboomer, it is important to consider a downstairs bedroom.
If you or someone you know requires is contemplating moving within or selling and moving within the Tulsa Metropolitan area because you want to be close to family or facilities, then it may be time to think about moving. You may be someone who wants to move from Tulsa to a warmer climate
There are many reasons for babyboomers to consider moving; retirement, health, lifestyle changes and many of you may find yourself single. Whatever the need in your transition let me help you.
If you have a story of your transition that you would like to share, please comment on this post.
