Moving when you retire has its drawbacks Is the chilly weather making you yearn to retire to a sun-drenched climate? If so, yearn a while longer. One of the great mistakes older Americans make in deciding where to retire is placing too much emphasis on warmer weather. More important than the weather: lots of varied activities and lots of good friends. Moving expenses can be steep. As a retiree, these expenses probably will not be tax-deductible because you are not moving to take a new job. Selling your old house can be costly, too even if you can defer any profits you make (above the $125,000 exclusion) by buying a house at least as expensive as the one you sold. You will still have to pay a real estate agent for selling your old house, and perhaps pay lawyers when you buy and sell. And there may be house-closing expenses, such as title insurance. Another financial consideration: If you want to find a part-time job during your retirement, you may find it easier in a community where you already have friends and acquaintances. But the key reasons for staying put are psychological. By remaining where you are: You will avoid the trouble of searching for reliable doctors, dentists, electricians, car-repair shops and the like. "Very few of us appreciate how difficult it is for older people to change doctors, attorneys, butchers, dressmakers, banks and churches," says a housing consultant for the American Association of Retired Persons. "They become accustomed to people they deal with on a day-to-day basis. And if they move, they become nostalgic for these old connections." You won't have to create a new cir- Sylvia Porter 4 If you do decide to movethoroughly check out the community you have in mind. 5 cle of friends. Some people easily make new, close friends, but many of us have taken years to develop deep and abiding ties. If you are shy, you might discover that sunny days may not compensate for lonely nights. Says a doctor who retired in his own town in Connecticut: "I don't think you make many new close friends late in life. I've been out of high school for 50 years and I still have very warm relationships with my high school classmates. I don't have that sort of relationship with anyone I've met in the past 20 years." You won't have to notify an army of people about your new mailing address, negotiate sales and purchases of houses, fill out the new, complicated tax returns on selling a residence, shift your medical records and do countless other last-minute things. For guidance on retirement you can ask for help from The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP Office of Communications, 1909 K St. NW, Washington D.C. 20049) or The National Council on The Aging (Retirement Preparation Division, 600 Maryland Ave. SW, West Wing 100, Washington D.C. 20024). Or you can contact your state or area agency on aging. If you do decide to move, thoroughly check out the community you have in mind. Vacation there for a summer or two. Have local real estate brokers show you properties for sale. Subscribe to the local newspaper to learn about problems the area may have and to acquire a sense of the community. Find out what life in the area is like during the off-season. ls anybody around or does your Shangri-la turn into the Sahara for a good part of the year? Inspect any retirement communities personally perhaps by combining a tour with a vacation since you may spend 10, 20 or 30 years of your life there. Most important, ask yourself these questions: How do you envision your retirement home? Is it surrounded by wide-open space and plenty of quiet and privacy, or in the middle of a busy community surrounded by a lot of neighbors? How do you want to spend your time? Hiking and fishing? Traveling frequently to other places? Attending theaters, concerts, other cultural events? How near do you want to be to old friends, children and grandchildren in your retirement years? A sunny climate, a big sky and a patch of ground are not enough to make a happy retirement. Your wisest maneuver, if you can afford it, may be to stay where you are and buy a home in a warmer climate just for the cold days of winter. More and more people are doing just that.
