BOOMERS! Kids finally moving out?

Posted

The kids have finally gone off to college or came home and have finally left again and you are wondering, what do I do with that spare bedroom. Many years ago, parents would leave it as is in the hopes the kids would come back. Now, parents are much more energetic and less attached to old traditions and let’s face it, after a second or third time around with the “Can I stay with you” routine, some parents are looking to have a reason to say no.

 

The kids have finally gone off to college or came home and have finally left again and you are wondering, what do I do with that spare bedroom.

If you are not ready to downsize and move to the wonderful downtown condo or that suburban townhome and have someone else mow your grass or shovel your snow, you may consider redoing the room and creating a home gym or yoga spa. Not just Boomers, but all of us are living longer and looking to be smarter with our health with what seems to be never-ending healthcare increases. So, it’s an affordable way to update a room for future sale and have tools in place to help keep you fit and active.

Should you decide you’d like to live in one level or move to a location that offers a large gym and classes, there are those options as well and I would be more than happy to assist you in determining your future needs.
