How to Decide When to Sell

Are you over-housed? Are you paying more than you want for taxes, utilities and maintenance?

Do you need equity from your home? A reverse mortgage an convert equity into cash or income for retirement.

Is home upkeep manageable?  Do you have time, energy or interest to perform maintenance?

Does your home match your physical ability? Are steps a problem? Is the yard too big? Is security an issue?

Have friends and neighbor moved? Maybe it's time to consider a move, too.

Do you want to be closer to family? Do you want more time with children and grandchildren? Do you need regular assistance from a family member?

Would you like to improve your lifestyle? Does the freedom to "lock and leave" while you travel appeal to you? Would you like to be closer to activities you enjoy?
