Anyone have a parent, or parents, that are getting to the point where they can’t live alone? My mother is 80 and I’m getting to that point where I’m thinking: “should I move her in?” It seems like I’m spending a lot more time doing things for her. As I consider this, there are so many questions. First of all, if I do move her in, I feel like I’d have to completely rearrange my house. And then I think, “There isn’t enough room in my house, we have to move!” There are all of these questions that pop up into my head as I think about this.
If you’re in a two-story home, you’re probably thinking you need to remodel. You may need to rearrange your home to accommodate your parent(s) to avoid the stairs. Maybe your master suite is on the main level; consequently, you think you should remodel the upstairs to move yourself up there to give your parent(s) the main level master suite. There are so many things to consider when faced with this situation.
Are you thinking that maybe it would just be easier if you looked for a new home, one that can accommodate your needs and desires as well as your parent’s? MAYBE you’re thinking, the easiest option is to build from scratch. In the Denver market with such a small inventory and your very specific needs, it’s probably just easiest to build exactly what you need.
Whatever decision you happen upon, I can help! If you need a recommendation for a lender to refinance to pay for the remodel, if you need a new home, or if you want to do a custom build. Give me a call, I’m in the same situation and I know what you’re going through!
