When you retire, you’re ready to enjoy life much more. It’s a time when you are expected to have your life in order and let go of some responsibilities. Many seniors find a huge benefit in renting their home instead of owning it. At Emerald Gardens Retirement Residence, we offer housing options that make your retirement safe, simple, and enjoyable.

Here are some reasons why you should consider renting instead of being a homeowner.

1. Financial Flexibility

When you reach your golden years, it is important to have the financial flexibility that allows you to live comfortably and fill your life with fun experiences. Seniors who own a home have to abide by a strict budget to cover the financial responsibilities that come with homeownership. Not to mention the unexpected expenses that arise.

Renting provides seniors more flexibility to allocate their money to other things such as travel, investments, and items that enhance their lives. If you rent you won’t need to worry about home repairs, real estate taxes, and other expenses associated with a home.

2. Low Maintenance and Repairs

Owning a home comes with a long list of tasks. From monthly maintenance to sudden repairs, it is challenging to upkeep a property. It is not something that seniors should be devoting their time to when they could choose an easier alternative.

When renting at Emerald Gardens, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that all maintenance and repairs are taken care of by professional staff. It liberates your time and energy to truly enjoy each day. You’ll have a carefree lifestyle that is conducive to socializing, engaging in hobbies, or just relaxing.

3. Reduced Responsibilities

When you retire, you’ll likely want to spend your time having as much fun as you can. Owning a home ties you up with many obligations that take away from a carefree lifestyle. Instead of taking care of a property, you can enjoy a retirement community that has onsite services and amenities to enhance your life.

Renting at Emerald Gardens also gives you access to caring staff who are there to assist you. Additionally, you’ll be surrounded by a community of active residents who are seeking the same relaxing lifestyle you desire.

4. Flexibility and Mobility

An important factor of retirement is being able to have flexibility and mobility. By renting, you’ll be freed from complicated real estate transactions and affairs related to the property.

It provides you the flexibility to travel, stay with family, or do whatever your heart desires at any moment. You can enjoy a lifestyle without the serious commitment that homeownership requires.

At Emerald Gardens, we understand the importance of having a carefree retirement. Our senior living community offers a variety of housing options to suit your preferences and needs. Book a tour and see the amazing possibilities that await you!
