Ep 24: How Your Home Fits into Retirement Planning

Your home is one of the biggest assets in your financial portfolio and there are a lot of decisions to make related to real estate. Let’s talk about the conversations we have with clients about mortgages, rental properties, downsizing, and more.

The Game Plan

Practically every client we work with wants to know whether they should pay off their mortgage before retiring. It’s an important discussion and one we have quite frequently.

But there’s a wide range of conversations that come with real estate in your retirement plan. Today we’ll look at a few of those additional topics that come up like whether to downsize, rental properties, and making real estate part of your estate plan.
