I'm 58. DH 62. I'm thinking about it, but location planning will begin in earnest once I reach 70, so it's still a ways off. Depending on our health, I wouldn't expect us to move into a facility until we are both in our 80s - DH will be closer to 85. If there are health problems it could occur sooner, so it's good have some preparation earlier. And you have to get on waiting lists, etc., so I feel like we have to have a place picked out by the time DH is 80.

Instead of selling out right now for $100, I promise to sell for $102 in a month, and the option buyer has to give me $2 now. So, in effect he will be buying at $104.

Yes, I do sell, but I want a higher price than the current price. I am greedy, but not as greedy as the option buyer who thinks the stock will go to more than $104.

Thanks for sharing your thought on selecting a place to live or the inevitable facility. We are slightly older but still believe that we are active and healthy. Thus, we are not thinking the 'facility' yet, but should be thinking or preparing about it as times go by. Cheers!
