Once the day comes that you retire, you’ll quickly realize your home is an empty nest.
The feeling is likely the same as when your children left the family home. You may notice that your home requires too much maintenance and exceeds your needs in living space. Even the location may not fit your needs anymore. Now free of professional and family responsibilities, your focus is likely on accessibility to restaurants, shops and entertainment.
You may surprise yourself dreaming about a particular property: an ultra modern condo in downtown San Diego? A single story home in Kensington, Pacific Beach, North County…? Maybe you aspire to walk to the beach and enjoy a nice morning hot drink?
Deciding to downsize and change your lifestyle doesn’t happen in a day. It is first a growing desire to adjust your lifestyle to yours needs. Luckily in California the government has arranged for homeowners aged 55 and older to sell their primary home and purchase a new one of equal or lesser value without increasing their property taxes. This is called proposition 60. Forms can be obtained by contacting the San Diego County tax assessor www.sdarcc.com .
I will gladly guide you through the process and answer all of your questions!
