It is becoming a popular way in real life for elderly adults to share homeownership and it has many benefits.The cost of assisted living is quite high. The median cost in the United States for assisted living is $4,051 per month. In many parts of America, that amount makes a substantial mortgage payment. Rather than pay that high price to live in an adult assisted-living community, many able-bodied elderly are choosing to pool their resources and live together in a large home that they own together.Buying A Home To ShareThe homes that work well for this are those that have many bedrooms, each with a private bath, and are on one-level.

If you’ve had to watch your parents transition into assisted living, you may have no desire to call such a place home. You are not alone. According to the Aging in Place Housing Survey conducted by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), more than 90 percent of seniors want to remain in their home.Many survey respondents said that they would rather use nursing home funds towards purchasing a home that is suited for aging in place or making accessible home modifications.  You’ve probably heard the buzzwords — aging in place, non-assisted living, universal design — these phrases mean the same thing: growing older in your home. Today, home modifications can help you continue to live in your home as you age. Plus, aging-in-place home modifications are much less expensive than mo...

  By Victoria Cangelosi Online Marketing/ Lead Generator The Ron Young Team Keller Williams Real Estate   I’ve been working with the Ron Young Team since May 2011.

While plenty of real estate agents are savvy enough to list properties on the internet, we actually have a comprehensive strategy that includes posting our sellers’ homes on the top online home search sites. Once we’ve covered those heavy-hitting sites, we create Facebook albums featuring our clients’ homes, and prompt visitors to contact us to set up a showing....

Did you know that lots of homeowners policies won’t cover swimming pools due to their high risk of accidents? This goes especially for pools that include slides and/or diving boards.

Here are a few tips on making sure your pool area is a place for fun, not worry: • Possibly the Number One Rule: never, ever leave children unsupervised near the pool, not even for a quick moment. • If your pool has suctions of any kind, warn people and especially children not to go near them.
