Look at you! For the past two decades and change or more, you’ve been raising your family, and now everyone’s all grown up. You’ve given your children all you can give them, and now it’s time for them to move on with their own lives. (Hopefully, of course, your kids aren’t coming back to stay after college!)
While things may feel quieter than they once were, and while you may be battling a touch of depression, it’s important to remember that the empty nest is only a new beginning. It’s a time to take up new hobbies, rediscover old pastimes, and – yes – a time to enjoy some much-needed peace and quiet!
But, there’s something else to consider. It may be time to fly that empty nest of yours and to move onto something else. Of course, many homeowners in your position want to keep the family home, ensuring that their children always have a familiar home to return to. But, what joy is there in nostalgia?
Rather than doing that, why not take your empty nest as an opportunity to move to that place you’ve always wanted to live? Your home, as a proven place for raising a family, can be highly desirable on the housing market, as many young couples search for homes to raise their children. With the proceeds from a sale, you could do so many things!
For one, you can downsize, because you don’t need all of that extra space, after all. Doing this will allow you to get a much more modern house than the one in which you’re living, and you’ll be able to pocket some of the cash for your retirement. Of course, you could always completely change your lifestyle, hitting the road in an RV!
Whatever you do, it’s up to you. But, if like so many others, you decide to fly your empty nest and to sell your home, you should work with We Say Sold. We charge a flat fee for our services, which ensures that all the equity you have in your home remains yours, as it should. We also have skilled realtors who close deals!
