The Takeaway: Many of our clients are interested in relocating once they are retired. Some are looking to be closer to the kids and grandkids. Others are looking for a slower pace of life and a less congested setting.

If you’re thinking of relocating, do your homework first. Spend time in the new community to make sure you like it. Consider renting a house for a few weeks or longer to get a good feel for what living there would be like, and don’t forget to talk to your financial and tax advisors about tax and other ramifications.
