Retirement has changed significantly from what our grandparents and even our parents experienced not too long ago. We’re living longer, healthier lives, but with that comes the added stress of maintaining your desired lifestyle for a lengthier retirement. You know it’s necessary to plan ahead and consider all your available retirement tools, but is it possible you’re overlooking the most valuable tool of all – your Housing Wealth?
I’ve invested my time and energy over the past 20 years to help people just like you understand the importance of their Housing Wealth, how to best access it, and how to use it efficiently in their retirements. To begin, I always ask my clients and their families this question: Are you making full use of your Housing Wealth to create the type of retirement you most desire?
In order to truly determine the answer, I’ve developed an easy, 10-question assessment for you to take. The assessment will do the hard work for you. It determines if the new reverse mortgage could work for your particular situation.
Although it does not explore every question that could be asked, it does provide enough insight to determine if continuing the journey makes sense. Whether for yourself or on behalf of a friend or family member, I ask you to take three minutes and honestly answer the questions.
You will have the choice of selecting Yes, No or Not Sure/Not Applicable. Let’s get started!
- Am I, or my spouse age 62, or older, and own a home?
- Am I planning to stay in my home for at least the next 5 years?
- Do I currently have a monthly loan payment?
- Would eliminating a mandatory monthly loan payment be helpful?
- Am I open to moving if it meant a better retirement lifestyle and added savings?
- Would having access to additional monthly income, if needed, be helpful?
- Do I have any concerns that my savings will last for the duration of my retirement?
- Is it important to me to have a back-up plan for stock market volatility and inflation?
- Would it be valuable to have a tax-free reserve fund to cover unexpected expenses, emergencies or unplanned purchases?
- If my out-of-pocket healthcare costs exceeded $100,000, would this be a strain on my retirement savings?
