Downsizing Your Real Estate in Retirement

$2 (you must pre-register)

Presenters: Stephen Lau & Weichurn Woo

Many people continue living in their large family homes for years beyond their actual need. Matching your lifestyle to your housing accommodation is key to ensuring you are living “efficiently”. If you travel frequently, and find yourself returning to a large vacant home, you are a prime candidate to consider downsizing. Unlocking the equity in your home will create liquidity, thus giving you many more life options. Transferring this unlocked equity to your financial advisor will also help your net worth continue to grow and create a new source of retirement income generation.
