Looking Ahead To Retirement: A Plan For Magnolia TX Homeowners

Many people dream of moving from their Magnolia TX home to a new location in retirement. When you are no longer tied to your job, you can finally take off for a warmer climate, pursue your hobbies, or simply move closer to your grandchildren. However, selecting a place to retire requires a great deal of thought and planning and requires you to do some hard thinking about your finances, desired lifestyle, climate preferences, leisure activities, health concerns, relationships, and your general quality of life.

US News Media Group has recently released a series of articles under the umbrella title “10 Best Places to Retire in 2012”—a must-read search tool for those of you who are thinking ahead to retiring and relocating from your Magnolia TX home. Each article deals with a focused topic such as fastest growing, cheapest, demographics (age, marital status, etc.), military favorites, second career opportunities, and  most expensive and attempts to match you with a location that will meet your individual needs and wants.

Although the report supplies more than one possibility for each area of focus and provides much information about each one, it does select a “winner” in each category.Some surprising results include:

  • Most affordable mountain home: Boone, NC
  • Best college town: Ithaca, NY
  • Best year-round weather:  Flagstaff. AZ
  • Best place for singles: Pittsfield, MA
  • Best place to begin a new career: Lincoln. NE

If are like most Americans, you will first need to focus on your financial situation to make sure you can afford to leave your current Magnolia TX home and move to the place of your dreams.To help you learn the answers to questions such as, Am I saving enough? When can I afford to stop working? How long will my money last?, AARP provides a calculator to help you plan your retirement on your terms.  Kiplinger also offers an easy-to-use calculator in a somewhat different format.Both sites remind you to revise your figures and recalculate frequently as your financial situation (salary, house value, unexpected expenses, etc.) changes.

Whether you are looking forward to living in an historic area, a “green” community, or a college town, the planning and the search for your ideal location are half the fun. Enjoy!
