Alternatives to 55+ Communities

Hi, I am Christina Swain with The Swain Team. Do you want to downsize to main floor living? But you do NOT want a to move to a 55+ community?

Well, what are your alternatives?

As a senior real estate specialist, I am asked this question almost every day.

You have two alternatives:

1. Ranch house: The problem with a ranch house is twofold. First, the ranch house still comes with a level of maintenance required. You will still be responsible for lawn care and snow removal which can be a daunting task. Sure, it is easy to think I will just hire someone but often that is harder than it sounds. Second, the majority of ranch homes were built 60-70 years ago and need to be remodeled and do not offer many of today’s standards like a master suite, open floor plan, or large bedrooms.

2. Single Floor Condo or Townhouse: There are several condo complexes in the Yardley, Holland – Southampton, and Bensalem area that offer main floor living.

For a more complete list, contact me at (215) 757-7257 or email me. As a knowledgeable realtor who specializes in helping her clients downsize, I can help guide you to the communities that would work best for you.
