My mom wants to sell the house and move into a condo in town. I’ve lived here my whole life. Until I didn’t live here anymore currently.
But you know what I mean. My dad doesn’t care either he just doesn’t wanna be involved. My mom said “he’ll do whatever I wanna do”. And The bidding for this condo is tomorrow. I told my mom to go bid on it. Why not?? She says if someone buys this condo she will feel disappointed I said then go bid it. And I would help her move. Even though it’s only a 15-20 minute walk away. Still would have to pack up and move.
Might be a good thing to save money?
Would moving into the condo save your parents money?
It’s a bit of money saved in price right off the bat. My parents are financial geniuses at least my dad. My mom leads by his example too. I’m a financial idiot. So I have no right to say what’s financially right or not. But it’s true
My mom moreso hates walking up tons of stairs and stuff and maintaining a property. It would save money in maintenance costs for sure.
Now that my parents are both in their 70s they don’t wanna live in a big home in the woods anymore
Moving into a condo was so great for my parents. They still miss the acreage but upkeep was so difficult.
Do condos usually appreciate in value like homes? What about neighbors and such? Are they attached?
We downsized some with this last move. I like having less space to clean, but having less space is making Mrs. Squirrel crazy. She keeps touring me around to look at even larger houses now. I admit I’d like a larger kitchen and a dining room to entertain in, but I don’t want to clean that much!
I’m not sure if it’s attached. It may be. But my mom said the market is way down. It’s like 70% of what the price used to be. I’m not sure much more
I think downsizing sounds like a good idea, especially at that age.
Change is difficult, even when it’s right and good change. I like how supportive you are of your parents, @Jonnybegood.
We rent a house that is larger than we need and has a yard that is a lot of work. I love it, but I’m getting tired of working so hard to maintain it.
We hope to move to a smaller place in the next year or so. I understand what a relief it would be for your mom to have an easier place to live. I hope her bid is accepted!
