If you are contemplating retirement and thinking of relocating because you are tired of the big city lifestyle, you might want to consider living in a retirement community. There are many advantages of living in retirement communities and you don’t have to sacrifice any conveniences you have become accustomed to. You actually might like the much laid back and friendly atmosphere. Most retirement communities have all of the amenities right in town so you will not have to drive for miles nor have to fight congested highways and streets to get to the supermarket. With this aspect alone you will be much happier and experience little to, no stress.
The prices of homes tend to be much cheaper in a retirement community. You would be able to sell your current big city home and buy another in a smaller town for less than half and live off of the remainder or take a trip you have always wanted to. Your property taxes, home insurance, and vehicle insurance would drop immensely and let us not forget retirement communities are much safer when it comes to crime and murder.
If you are 55 plus, make a wise decision, to start enjoying your life the way you deserve to.
