I can see that there is an amazing amount of knowledge here with all these members who have actually done what I would like to do, so I am kindly asking for advice based on actual experiences.

I am 60, and I plan to retire soon from my federal government job of 35 years. I own my home in Brunswick, Maryland, an my only family is comprised of my two adult daughters who live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So I would like to sell my large home here in MD and buy a small home in Albuquerque.

I own a lot of stuff, such as kayaks with trailers, many books, and camping gear, and I would like suggestions on downsizing. Also, any good advice on moving my possessions safely would be appreciated.

Since my area is not good for selling homes due to the depressed real estate market here, and it takes at least one year to sell a home on the average, I was thinking of renting a place nearby, moving all my stuff to the rented place, selling my home calmly and at a good price over time, and finally buying a home in Albuquerque to live there.

I am no rush, but I am lacking any practical advice. I heard a lot from real estate agents who are looking to "close a deal" and I don't need more advice from those with self-interest as an objective. Hearing from real retirees is what I would truly appreciate, as you folks are the experts.

Thank you, God bless you all!
