Finding the best place to retire doesn't have to be difficult, just break it down into small parts. Are you retiring, or are you looking for assisted living or a nursing home for an elderly parent? If so, you may want to start your search here.

Finding the best place to retire doesn’t have to be difficult, just break it down into small parts. Are you retiring, or are you looking for assisted living or a nursing home for an elderly parent? If so, you may want to start your search here.

  • Step One: Asses your needs – Finding a retirement community for an elderly parent who needs care? Check out assisted living or nursing homes. Assisted living will provide your parents with a little more freedom, but may not be right for those who need round the clock care. Planning your own retirement? Great! I wish I was there… Think about the kind of place you’ve always wanted to live… is it near a beach? The mountains? The desert? Your retirement is a great chance to live out all those unfulfilled dreams. And if your retirement is still a few years away, you may consider buying a place now, renting it out in the meantime, and watching it appreciate.
  • Step Two: Shop around – Don’t worry, this isn’t hard. Just plan on actually visiting the places you’re considering spending your retirement. Talk to the people there, do they like it? Explore the neighborhood, is it a place you’d like to live? Simply walking around and nocking on doors can be a great way to get a feel for your future retirement home.
  • Step Three: Check the financials – Make sure that, if there are any maintenance fees or hidden charges, you know about them ahead of time. Accurately predicting how much you’re going to need to spend in retirement is critical to making the most of your golden years.
