Downsizing for Seniors

 

Drew and Martha have spent much of their time in real estate helping seniors relocating from larger single family homes to gated communities, where they can have the feel of still being at home without the hassles of gardening or snow shovelling.

Many seniors choose to go South for the winter and these communities are ideal for those wishing to just lock the door and walk away.  Friendly neighbours can agree to keep and eye on your place while you are away.  

Drew and Martha have found that most seniors need between 1400-1600 square feet all on one level, with 2 bedrooms (plus a den), two bathrooms and sometimes a double garage. Perhaps RV parking is also a priority? Room for your pet?

Seniors find living in an age restricted community is more desirable than a single family home that requires their attention.  Many of these gated complexes have lovely clubhouses, some with indoor and outdoor pools, exercise equipment, games room and a whole host of social activities to take part in if you wish.  They are usually conveniently located near shopping, amenities, medical and professional offices.  In addition, security is paramount and the landscaping is lush and gorgeous.  

 

We have included a summary comparison of the well managed gated communities in Kelowna and West Kelowna.
