3 Great Living Options for the Elderly
There are three housing options that make the most sense for senior citizens: condominiums, ramblers, and senior living communities.
If you or someone you know is elderly and transitioning into a life of retirement, there are three main housing options that make the most sense for them.
The first is moving into a condominium with elevators. This alleviates the burden of having to walk up and down stairs and also provides all the amenities of a condominium association, including gyms, pools, saunas, spas, etc. Some of these amenities will depend on the association itself, of course, but this type of property allows you to downsize from your current home into something that’s easier to live in.
The second option is a rambler. This option makes the most sense if you want to downsize from your current home because it has too many levels or too many steps but you still want to live in a home. A rambler is a one-level home, which means you can buy one that same two, three, or four bedrooms that are all on the same level and everything else is easily accessible.
The third type of option is a senior community. These are living communities built specifically for seniors ages 55 and older. Homes in these communities typically have master bedrooms on the first level. They also feature condo-style homes.
If you have any more questions about these housing options or you’re thinking of buying or selling a home yourself in our market, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to help you.
