Response to WorseBeforeBetter (Reply #35)

Mon Feb 9, 2015, 01:03 PM

42. I wouldn't sell a home that is paid for. Rent it for retirement or general income.

The USA is moving towards a society where the majority will not be able to afford a home. There is a growing landlords market in the USA. You could hire a real estate service to care for the home & lease it for you. Could lease it furnished if you wish.

I'm still working long hours and saving. There isn't much time to travel, yet Our state parks are full of people who live in their trailers full time.

Now that my house is paid for, it is time to buy the trailer. Park it here, maybe use it for some close trips or even rent the trailer. To rent it would help cover the costs of maintenance and insurance.
