Elevated Living, Elevated Options: Renting vs. House Ownership

When it comes to living an elevated lifestyle, there’s a big choice to be made. Do you want to spend your golden years living at your house, or do you want to spend them in a rental 55+ community? The answer boils down to what type of life you’d like to experience. 

According to Ovation at Riverwalk’s Director of Community Relations, Daisy Newson, many seniors love the idea of remaining where they are, however, there are so many hassles involved, keeping them from living a lifestyle they love. “Many seniors want to simply enjoy each day without the burden of house ownership. To them, living a luxury rental lifestyle is more compelling than remaining where they are without security, with less freedom and without all the services and amenities that rental options provide.” 

Elevated Living, Elevated Options: Rental vs. Ownership

Don’t settle for less than the lifestyle you deserve. Instead, know your options and how they can affect your lifestyle for years to come. Consider the following differences between rentals and house ownership.

  • Rental living provides less things to care for. Those who live in rental communities can enjoy a stress-free lifestyle. There is someone to care for your maintenance, housekeeping, meals and more. Here, you won’t waste time thinking about doing anything you don’t want to. 
  • You have more freedom. Wouldn’t it be nice to simply pack up and go whenever you please? All while knowing you have the peace of mind of security and can leave any worries behind? At Ovation at Riverwalk, you can come and go as you please as you’re not tied down by a large buy-in fee. 
  • There will be more social opportunities in rental communities. While many seniors think that remaining at your house will ensure they can do the things they love and see those they love to spend time with, this isn’t always the case. In fact, if friends and family move away or no longer drive, it may be on you to visit them. 
  • Services and amenities are included. Imagine enjoying a lifestyle where you have access to a range of services and amenities. At Ovation at Riverwalk, we offer everything you want and then some. With resort-style amenities, a fitness center and yoga studio, delicious dining and a prime location, there is so much to enjoy and do all included in your monthly fee.  

When you remain at your house, you will pay extra for others to complete these tasks for you or else you do them yourself. This means someone you might not know could be taking care of these tasks for you, while in a community setting, you will easily get to know those providing these services. 

When you leave your house to go on a trip, you may then have to ask someone to watch over your house and belongings, making it more difficult to have peace of mind.

In a rental community, you have access to an array of social opportunities and friends just outside your door. With lifelong learning opportunities, special events, a MOSAIC of programming and so much more, you can experience an engaging and elevated lifestyle. 

When seniors live at their house, they often miss out on these luxurious amenities and opportunities. This is often what convinces residents to make the move.
