If your home search has led you to consider “over 55” Communities in southern New Hampshire, you are on the right web page! The Adams Home Team has a very strong focus on helping clients evaluate the various >55 communities and opportunities in New Hampshire. Our collective experience spans several decades and we have intimate knowledge of many of the popular “over 55” options for you.
In fact, we have developed a specific program, SDN (Simply Downsize Now) for those clients who are “Downsizing”, selling their home, and evaluating their goals and objectives in terms of where they would be most comfortable living. This certainly includes the “over 55 option”. If you are interested, here is the link to that information. What is important is to understand that within the “over 55” community there are a lot of variables you should review before you start looking.
Suffice it to say all “over 55” communities are not the same just as all condominiums are not the same. There are a wide range of services, configurations, costs, associated HOA (Home Owners Association) fees and like any condominium, a diverse set of regulations that govern the people living there.
Just a snap shot – you have choices: stand-alone units, town house units and garden style units. Each has advantages and disadvantages depending on your expectations. For example, a desire to have one floor living will eliminate townhouses from your search. Each community has its own set of features. Are you looking for pools, hiking trails, club houses…? Those are readily available but add to the HOA monthly fees. If you are coming from an environment where you always planted flowers and gardens, you may be disappointed to learn that this is not allowed in some over 55 communities. The same can be said for having a Hot Tub on your deck. Some communities tend to be more “social” than others, with planned events, pool parties, and even trips. If you are looking of for this type of environment, it can be wonderful. If not, it may be annoying. The point is, regulations vary and you should go through a process up front to determine what the absolute “must haves” are for your new home as well defining what total monthly expenditures including HOA dues are possible. We want the next phase of your life to be perfect!
If this home search is approached in a logical, defined way you can save yourself a lot of time and stress by eliminating certain locations and specific over 55 communities up front. The Adams Home Team has a process for this and has successfully helped many clients find their perfect home in a terrific over 55 community.
