The Role of Your Home in Retirement


Introduction

Another big decision you have to make in retirement concerns your home. Should you trade down to a smaller residence? Or maybe you decide to move to a state with lower tax rates or no state income tax. In either case, you may be selling your home. Before selling your principal residence, it is important to become familiar with the tax consequences involved.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Prudent planning dictates that you do not count on your home to finance your retirement. The price of your home may fluctuate, you may have difficulty selling your home, and you may use a substantial portion of your home to finance your retirement home.
