She was recently quoted by Baltimore Magazine about when individuals should begin retirement planning, what to consider if they plan to sell their house, and the biggest expenses they will face. There are many choices for housing in retirement so it’s important to look over, or have a professional help you look over, how each type of living situation would impact your retirement savings.
