Oops! When I saw the title, I thought the thread was Ranting in retirement. We have enough of that already around here.

We currently own our home outright and plan on staying in it for the foreseeable future. However, our plan at about age 75, is to sell and most likely rent a much smaller place, closer to town, at that time to avoid all of the maintenance/upkeep issues. We believe this will provide us with the maximum flexibility to deal with health issues if applicable. We saw with our parents that a change in health status can happen very quickly and a home sale under those conditions can be much more onerous (as well as less profitable).

If your money is green an American landlord will likely take it. Absolutely no need to buy a place.
