January Webinar: Home as a Superpower

About this Webinar

80% of older adults own their own homes, but many are cash-strapped in retirement. As expenses rise and incomes become fixed, what assets can we reimagine to afford the retirement we want and have worked so hard for?

We often consider our home our nest egg, and perhaps have a reluctance to consider it as an asset. It’s our home! Maybe it’s where we’ve raised children, or hosted numerous holiday dinners, our respite and safe space, or even perhaps the inheritance we’re hoping to pass along. But what if we considered our home a superpower? Home ownership is a significant achievement and should be celebrated! Join us for a conversation around shifting our mindset around our home and consider the tools available that can open us up to new ways to leverage our home as an asset.
