I specialize in active adult communities and receive calls from seniors looking for rentals in senior communities. All seniors who downsize may not want to buy another home. They may prefer to rent but may be afraid to rent from private landlords who may want them to move out after a couple of years.
There are some homeowners in 55plus communities who do rent them out either because they may have bought planning to move in some day or some may not be able to live by themselves and may have moved in with their children . But these people do not plan on holding on to these homes as investments .
Builders reading this should seriously consider building communties as rentals and offer all the amenities that seniors look for.
If you are looking to move to an active adult community in a few years , you might consider buying now if you quailfy to buy , and rent it out for a few years. Before you buy, you should read this article .
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
