Where will we live when we retire ?

A recent report   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3168885/One-three-face-renting-retirement-2040-Millions-future-pensioners-face-later-years-properties-don-t-levels-home-ownership-plummet.html showed many people will face retirement renting or with an unpaid mortgage . It is never to early to plan ahead for your housing needs in later life , even though most of us put our head in the sand. Some forward planning would help avoid moving several times in later life and new solutions like co housing are springing up. If you already have a secure tenancy treasure it and consider your options. New tenancies are not likely to be as user friendly image

and flexible . Your right to exchange could mean a move to a better retirement base …if you research and plan ahead.

Make a Dream House shopping list NOW. write down all the features you want ,and where your ideal location with facilities in walking or bus distance are , so that when you choose not to drive you will not be marooned and lonely. think about hills, steps, levels, views, sunshine & nearness to doctors, shops, people and high speed broadband . With high speed broadband you can remain connected to everyone on line & by Skype till you finally log off.
