Remember when you bought that big house because you needed room for your 2-plus kids? What’s your plan now that they’re grown and have decided to try their hand at adulting? (Adulting: To behave like an adult, to do the things that adults regularly have to.)
If you search the web you’ll find plenty of articles that tell you exactly how to make the most of those empty bedrooms. How about a trendy man cave, a crafty she-space, a modern media room, or a cool family hub? Or… what about selling your home, banking the cash and going on an extended vacation.
Try something different
Now that you’re children are busy adulting you don’t need all those bedrooms. Besides, if you stay in an empty nest that’s designed for 4, 5, or 6, it’s practically an open invitation for your millennials to move right back home. If you sell your home, you open the door to so many other options.
- Buying a smaller home
- Moving into a condo
- Renting a small apartment
- Leasing a luxury townhome
- Buying a beachside condo… in Florida
Any one of those alternatives will likely cost less than your mortgage, utilities, and other monthly expenses. (And your grown kids’ grocery bills.) Once you’re situated in your new place, you can build a retirement nest egg with the monthly savings.
The possibilities are endless
It’s still a tough decision to make. If you need a little encouragement, take a look at this USA Today article, “Having kids DOES make you happier, but only after they leave the nest…” The author reviewed several empty nest studies and concluded that parents often have more fun after the kids leave home.
All you have to do is sell your empty nest
Selling your home takes a big commitment. It’s no wonder most empty nesters simply fix up the spare bedrooms and call it a day. If you’ve ever sold a home before, you know how complicated the process can be. You know how long it can take.
Before your real estate agent adds your listing to her website, you have to fix up every little ding and paint every wall. You must de-personalize every space and clear out most of your furniture. You stage the inside until it looks like nobody lives there and redo the outside until your curb appeal shines through… and then you wait.
