To rent or own, that is the question

Senior apartments in London, Ontario are most often rented, although there are senior condos that offer a variety of leasing or ownership options. While many people think it is obviously best to own, this may not always be true. When you choose to rent one of the London and area seniors' apartments listed here, you have more freedom and you have the possibility of investing money elsewhere. It all depends on your stage of retirement and your total finances.

Some of the freedoms you have if you rent include the following:

  • Freedom from basic upkeep and home maintenance. Apartment rental frees you up from basic home upkeep like replacing the roof, paying property taxes, shoveling the walk in winter and cutting the grass.
  • The freedom to invest money elsewhere. Many people who sell their homes choose to invest the money in things other than real estate. You'll have extra money and you can choose to use it for things other than housing.
  • Freedom to close out the rental agreement or lease, to move anywhere else, or travel.
  • Freedom from worry about the real estate market

Renting a senior condo or apartment can be a wise decision in many cases. Life lease is another option open to seniors in London and area. Learn more about buying, renting or leasing in retirement.
