With all of the baby boomers at or near retirement age, you would think there would be plenty of age-restricted patio homes and villas to choose from. Unfortunately, the opposite is true! There are only a handful of communities, and there are only a few active listings at any point in time. You may see some communities with nice, one-level attached homes that look like they would be for seniors, but they are for all ages--which is fine too! The main idea is to have everything you need on one level so you can age in place and not have to move again.
It is important to contact an experienced Realtor® who specializes in working with seniors. Deb Staley earned the designation of Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES) over ten years ago. Deb can help you sell your current home, and find you a new one.
