When you’re buying a new home, something to consider is whether it is a home you plan on staying in for as long as possible, even after the kids are gone.
There are a few factors we forget to consider in a home that will age with us.
Here are a few Tips to choosing a home that will Age with you:
- Is it walkable?
- Are there local social clubs and activities?
- Will you be able to maintain it (lawn, garden, cleaning) or hire some to maintain it for you?

- Is there good lighting?
- Does it have a walk-in shower?
