Housing for Retirees: Buy, Sell or Hold? - Michael Falk

We know your home is where your heart is, but we also know that’s one very big, illiquid asset (and liability too) with no yield in your portfolio.

A home is dear to the hearts of many retirees, but it may also be a large and illiquid asset, and/or liability. 

Income is paramount, but reaching for yield is perilous. What you should consider doing with the home is much more complex than often discussed. Let’s tear the roof of this topic and start to discuss some key issues brick by brick.

In "Housing for Retirees: Buy, Sell or Hold?" by Michael Falk, you will learn:

  1. How retiring without a mortgage is very smart, but accelerating the payoff to accomplish such a goal may not be so smart.
  2. How “livable” (really) is your home long-term?
  3. What could be the long-term cost profile (liability) of maintaining your home?
  4. Your options: HELOC, Reverse Mortgage, downsize, or sell.

He was the Chief Strategist on a Global Macro fund as well as a CIO in charge of manager due diligence and asset allocation for a multi-billion dollar advisory, one of the first firms to provide managed accounts for reluctant 401(K) investors – those that can’t, or won’t, invest wisely themselves.

Michael has been a contributing member of the PDDARI group within the Financial Management Association (FMA), the Vice Chair of the Plan Sponsor Council of America’s Investment Committee, taught as an adjunct professor at DePaul University in their Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Certificate Program.

Retirement planning thought leadership and expertise

Michael is an engaging, creative asset management professional, and offers equally engaging presentations and materials on retirement topics, behavior, asset allocation research and portfolio development expertise.
The asset consulting perspective acknowledges that the wisdom of crowds can denigrate into madness at times. Assets should be managed with the serenity to accept the market’s realities; the courage to pursue its opportunities; and the ongoing pursuit of wisdom to understand the difference.
