Succeeding in Love and Real Estate

What Is Coinbase?
Money
Retire with Money
Elizabeth O'Brien
Looking for a home is a lot like searching for a romantic partner. You should have some non-negotiable criteria, but also be flexible. You have to listen to your heart and your head. And often, you have to try many times before you successfully match. That’s especially true in today’s hot housing market, where it’s not unusual for buyers to write four, six or even eight offers before they have one accepted. Learn some tips for navigating the fast-moving market in today’s edition. And if you’re relocating in retirement, consider renting in the area first. Test the waters before making a big commitment — in real estate and in love.

Best wishes,
Elizabeth
