This all depends on what you want to do with your retirement, of course. Whether you’re hoping to travel frequently to exotic destinations or to simply visit your grandkids up the street, it’s important to have enough money stored away to fund your day-to-day life.

As you get closer and closer to retirement, it might be a good idea to sit down with your financial planner to plan for your upcoming years of fun-filled relaxation.

Think About Downsizing

For many, a big part of retiring is downsizing your home (and your belongings) to make room for all the fun that’s to come! A big part of what attracts people to 55+ active adult communities is the low-maintenance living.

At The Walk at East Village, you have low-maintenance homes with first-floor living, and the activities are planned out for you. What could be better!

Plan Out Your Activities

Think about your interests, and what you enjoy doing. Oftentimes, people go into retirement without a set plan and find themselves longing for a more rigorous schedule. If you enjoy having a set schedule, you may even be interested in freelancing or finding a part-time job to fill your days.
