Marketplace’s Economics Editor Chris Farrell joins Kerri today to talk about stay-tirement AKA retiring right where you are.
My parents retired in the past few years and stayed in the home they’ve had since 1975. They like the house they’ve renovated over the years, have lots of friends around the Twin Cities, and live 15 minutes away from a couple of adorable grandchildren. Florida, Mexico, or a cool apartment in New York City were never even on the agenda.
Where do you plan to retire and what are the factors that you are considering as you make the decision?
