Investing in your Future

If you plan for this to be your last home you will benefit from small changes that make it friendly to older bodies.  Wider doors will accommodate wheelchairs, lever door handles are easier to use for hands with arthritis or less strength.  Avoid building two story homes or build a master suite on the first floor.  A walk-in shower can be a roll-in shower too.  We can advise you on how to adjust your home to keep you comfortable and in your home as long as possible.

It’s smart to make small modifications to keep you happy and healthy long past retirement.

Peace of Mind

Many retirees have a long-term budget plan.  They know how much they have to live on every year for the next few decades.  Knowing how much your home will cost you takes away the worry of unknown expenses.  You can choose to install systems that will last as long as you will, or you can install less expensive equipment and budget for replacing them as they wear out.  Our team can give you information on pricing and life expectancy for all the systems in your next home so you won’t have any surprises.
