You’ve estimated how much you will need to live each year, faithfully contributed to a 401(k), whittled down debt, and perhaps started to downsize. You’re on the cusp of your post-career lifestyle, so your next step is to decide where you want to live. You can stay in your existing home, downsize to a smaller home, live in an active adult/55+ community, or choose a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).
Assessing your options
There are pros and cons to each living arrangement. If you want to stay in your current house, consider the cost of home maintenance and repairs (new roof, water heater, windows, appliances), utilities, property taxes, and the need to modify a home if your mobility needs change.
Meanwhile, downsizing to a smaller home or an active adult/55+ community means that you incur the cost of relocation and pay all realtor commissions. Another consideration to consider with these options is that they don’t offer the same level of security for your future that CCRCs do. Although reassessing what sort of living space you really need makes perfect sense, proactively accounting for the support you may need in the future makes even more sense.
Are you ready for move to a CCRC?
You might think you’re not ready to move to a CCRC. After all, you’re a healthy, independent, and active individual. Actually, those three words—healthy, independent, and active—perfectly describe the essence of Trinity Landing.
As Wilmington’s only non-profit, faith-based CCRC, Trinity Landing will be a perfect fit for individuals and couples who want the social benefits of living among peers. Its advantages are many: a gorgeous waterside property, newly built homes, resort-like amenities, the promise of a secure future, and a sense of community. Trinity Landing is set to open in 2022, with construction slated to begin in late 2019.
Most importantly, Trinity Landing places an emphasis on wellness and active living. A full-time life enrichment director will help residents take advantage of the best of what the historic and coastal city of Wilmington has to offer.
