Things to Consider Before Buying a Retirement Property
From the welcoming community atmosphere to the sense of security, and the opportunity to have a beautiful home without all the responsibility of its upkeep, moving into a retirement home is an enjoyable prospect. But like any change in life, it takes some consideration, and apart from the financial commitment, you want the peace of mind to know that you’re making the right decision.
We encourage you to visit our villages, ask as many questions as you like of our dedicated staff, and speak to the people living there. Our residents are our greatest advocates and their contentment speaks volumes.
When is the best time to make the move?
If you’re over 55 and the idea of living with more contentment and less stress within a welcoming community is appealing, there’s no need to wait. These days, perceptions about what a ‘typical’ retiree looks like have changed, and wanting to enjoy the relaxing retirement lifestyle, doesn’t have to mean you no longer work. Our residents represent a diverse range people at different life stages.
Naturally, when you’re winding down your professional life, you’re looking towards a future with less responsibility and more freedom to enjoy everything you’ve worked towards. What our villages offer is an environment designed to enhance all the rewards that come with retirement, and empower our residents to make the most of this next fulfilling chapter.
Choosing your new home
Questions to ask yourself might include:
- What sort of home do you see yourself living in?
- Do you want to downsize or do you require a similar amount of room?
A smaller home offers the benefits of less housework and maintenance, while extra space allows room for whatever your heart desires, from guest bedrooms to work studios. Have a think about your specific needs and speak to your Sales Manager about the types of homes available.
