Used to be a time when you reached the age of 65, you could retire. But
now, with the rising costs of living and the economy, people who once
retired are now working longer. In fact, more than three in five U.S.
workers in their 50s and 60s plan on working past 65. And 47% say they
will continue in the workforce because of financial needs or the need to
retain health benefits, according to a 2011 study from the nonprofit
Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies.
If you are trying to sell your home, there are many factors to keep in

the location and condition of your home that can figure into its value.
Even such details as the color of your house can cause the value to go
up or down.
