Considering Your Next Move Into An Active Adult Community

Considering Your Next Move into an Active Adult Community

Posted on June 3, 2019

Every housing decision involves a complex set of factors and moving into an active adult community adds additional unique considerations.

Good News is that a Realtor® and SRES®-designated agent, like myself, can help you with your next move into an Active Adult Community.

Things to Consider
Location
  • Do you prefer living close to family/friends or in a particular area for health/weather reasons?
  • Do you want to live in a development with minimal amenities within a city or prefer a more isolated community that meets all your social needs and includes all the onsite amenities you desire?
  • Do you plan to maintain one or more vehicles or prefer relying on your community’s transportation options or public transit?

Cost
  • Your options will expand or be limited by the amount you have saved and the sale price of your existing home.
  • How much can you invest in your new house and what is your monthly budget for living expenses?
  • Remember to include all homeowners’ fees when making your decision. Also factor in any “Up Front” move-in fees.
Walkability drives seniors' housing decisions

Walkability Drives Seniors’ Housing Decisions

Though a desire for walkable neighbourhoods is most associated with the millennial generation, walkability and good public transit also are high on boomers’ and seniors’ wish-lists.

Though things like quality of care services, affordability, and a facility’s cleanliness topped people’s must-have lists, walkability and access to transit were also tremendously important to survey respondents.

4 Reasons to Work with an Exclusive Seniors Real Estate Specialist®


If you are over the age of 50 and considering buying or selling a home, there are many reasons to choose a senior real estate specialist like Rosemary Papp.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “all real estate is local”. It’s a truism that refers to the unique qualities of neighbourhoods and properties—and the importance of working with a real estate professional who intimately understands a local market.
