Some people waste time, money, and effort trying to shop for a house themselves, then end up getting an agent after they determine that they need help.

- Retirement does not mean sitting in a rocking chair on your front porch for the rest of your days. In fact, more retirees than ever are choosing to live busy, active lives well into their 80s and even beyond. If you don't intend to slow down either, 55+ active adult communities may be a good fit.

Fortunately, you can still get plenty of storage by making specific demands. Square Footage The easiest way to get the most storage with your condo is to focus on the square footage while shopping.
