Primary Residence Improvements Before Retirement

Before you retire, it’s a good idea to look around your primary residence. Are there any improvements or efficiencies that you can implement now? Look for big-ticket items that might hit you in the next few years. For example:

  • How’s the roof? Siding? Gutters?
  • Any remodel projects you’ve put off?
  • Driveway in good condition?
  • Windows in good condition?
  • Furnace in good shape? Energy-efficient?
  • Water tank – consider a tankless water system.
  • Any property drainage issues?

The bottom line is to create a checklist of potential big-ticket items to plan for so they won’t blindside you while you’re on a fixed income in retirement.
