Housing for Retirees: Buy, Sell or Hold? - Michael Falk

We know your home is where your heart is, but we also know that’s one very big, illiquid asset (and liability too) with no yield in your portfolio.

A home is dear to the hearts of many retirees, but it may also be a large and illiquid asset, and/or liability. 

Income is paramount, but reaching for yield is perilous. What you should consider doing with the home is much more complex than often discussed. Let’s tear the roof of this topic and start to discuss some key issues brick by brick.

In "Housing for Retirees: Buy, Sell or Hold?" by Michael Falk, you will learn:

  1. How retiring without a mortgage is very smart, but accelerating the payoff to accomplish such a goal may not be so smart.
  2. How “livable” (really) is your home long-term?
  3. What could be the long-term cost profile (liability) of maintaining your home?
  4. Your options: HELOC, Reverse Mortgage, downsize, or sell.​
