Your kids are grown and gone and without them your Santa Cruz County home was simply too big and too much work. So you sold it. Now you’re asking yourself, “Should I buy a new Santa Cruz County home in a retirement community?”
The answer depends on what's important to you. Do you crave the company of others? Would you use many of the amenities provided at the community? If yes, then you might prefer the convenience of a retirement community.
Many communities offer amenities to attract buyers, such as:
• Golf courses
• Swimming pools
• On-site exercise facilities
• Trails for hikes and biking
• Clubs, associations, and various interest groups.
Other things you need to consider before making your decision are:
• Do you meet the age requirements?
