My mom, downsized into a lovely condo when she was in her 80s! And the answer is Yes, of course! Just as the reverse is true, someone can buy a first home when they're young and perhaps have an accident, that's why we have wills, trusts and estate law. You might want to discuss these issues with an attorney or accountant to plan how you would like to hold title, and any plan for the future.

Hi Casey,

I imagine that could be something possible if both parties owned their homes outright. Unfortunately we do not see much of that here.

If you need help selling your home in so-cal let me know, we have a great relocation department, that can research a top agent in your area.

Until then, if you want to stay abreast of the market in the Paradise/Magalia area, then I recommend signing up for my house hunting service. This service searches the MLS twice a day and will email all homes that fall within your pre-chosen criteria. Simply visit and sign up. It's FREE with no obligation.

Thanks Casey and Good Luck!
