Condominiums

There are pros and cons to condo living. We can guide and protect you by investigating potential risks for the specific condo you are considering and other costs you may not know about.

The concept of a condo is that someone else takes care of common area maintenance, which is the main reason you pay a condo fee. Yes, it’s great when you don’t have to shovel snow or can park underground. However, be aware that condos also have downsides.

You may be faced with an assessment or bill for your portion of a new roof, or to paint hallways in the complex. Many condos are wonderful, but a few are disasters waiting to happen.

Let an experienced Sell Mom’s House agent help you look before you leap.

Over 55 communities

Various types of housing come with age restrictions. People often seek out these types of communities for the camaraderie, activities and amenities in secure and generally, tranquil settings.

They may be free-standing homes that look like single-family residences, but the Condo Association pays to maintain the streets. In return for less maintenance, the town allows houses to be built closer together than usual. Towns also like 55+ communities because there’s no impact on school enrollments.

Each complex is different and lots of rules and restrictions may apply.

Subsidized senior housing

The government offers subsidized housing for seniors based on their income and other factors. Essentially, they allow you to pay below market rents for apartments in buildings where age may also be a qualifying factor. Even if you sell your home and have a good amount of cash in the bank, you may still qualify for these programs.

We can connect you to this type of housing in your area.

Independent and assisted living communities

A major development in senior housing has been the advent of independent and assisted living communities. Many misconceptions about these communities exist in the minds of those who have not visited them. Although the apartment is probably smaller than what you are used to, the amenities are generally great. Think of it as living in a resort with good food, planned activities and other features such as beauty parlors, lounges and more.

Residents of independent living communities often maintain their cars and social calendars with little need of assistance. In contrast, assisted living communities provide additional services tailored to residents’ needs such as nursing care, housekeeping and prepared meals.

Sell Mom’s House has relationships with most of the communities in your area and can guide you or arrange a visit. These communities are surprisingly affordable when you consider that you are eliminating the cost of real estate taxes, maintenance and the cost of most meals.

Socialization is another great reason to consider assisted or independent living communities, as seniors can become isolated when living alone.
