OK, not literally jump in a lake, but perhaps a toe dip in the community pool.
The decision to leave a long term family home is tough enough; the notion of “starting fresh” often adds stress to those seeking a retirement condominium. Often termed “active adult” and “55-plus” communities, the premise is to offer a home surrounded with people of like-age and life stage for those no longer in need of a larger home.
There are any number of opportunities on the North Fork of Long Island, from Riverhead to East Marion.
When looking at properties offering a “lifestyle” agenda, it’s important to look beyond the actual condo or townhome unit, or community. The majority of communities offer amenities that include a pool, tennis, bocce, and a clubhouse, which all LOOK great.
Touring these amenities (and timing the tour when residents are enjoying the benefits) is a great way to ease the anxiety of moving.
The best people to offer reassurance and guidance are those that have made the jump. It never ceases to amaze me, when viewing communities with prospective buyers, the ease with which those in the community are able to connect with those looking. Pleasantries that begin with, “we’re just looking around” turn into conversations about the angst of the move, and the resultant satisfaction with the decision-and often any downside to the move.
The best guidance a prospective homeowner can receive is generated by a homeowner who has “been there”- and arrived at the other side with hindsight often unavailable those making the decision. What’s great about the communities that I’ve visited is that the life stage shared by the residents translates into a value that can’t be matched- from recommendations of movers, to great parties that were recently enjoyed, to the pool man that should be fired because he doesn’t get ALL of the bugs out with the skimmer.
It is info that neither a real estate agent or non-resident can convey with the confidence that a resident is able to.
Next time we’re out and about with someone seeking such a change, we’ll be sure to arrive when the most important element of the community is available for consultation- the homeowner contingent.
If you’re interested in a vacation/retirement/active adult condominium on the east end of Long Island, give us a call. The choices are many, and the goal to get the best possible fit for you is the only agenda- nothing matters more in a transaction than the right outcome for you.
There are a number of available opportunities on the North Fork of Long Island- come take a look!
