Researching Communities: Start Here
Before you visit a community, make sure to spend some time considering the services and amenities that are important to you. This is where choosing a community becomes specific. For this reason, make a list of all the things you want. For example, would you like to live on the coast in a community that is pet friendly? Or, maybe you’ve always dreamed of retiring in California. These are just a few examples of things you might put on your wishlist.
It’s up to you to decide what you want and seek the places that can fulfill your needs. After all, this is your retirement so choose wisely. By knowing which items on your wishlist are non-negotiable, it will help you narrow down your list of possible communities to visit. Once you have narrowed down your list, your next step is booking a tour to visit them. Below, we offer some insight on questions to ask or consider during your visit.
