The advantages of condo living are numerous. Consider the following:
Many Ontario senior condominium complexes create a community with your 55 plus peers. You’ll form many new friendships. Community activities and shared facilities mean you’ll meet a wide variety of people your own age who share your interests.
You can say goodbye to all the things you hate about home ownership. There’ll be no more shoveling snow, clearing out eaves troughs, paying plumbers and electricians, paying property taxes, cutting the grass and the other petty annoyances of living in your own home. They all become someone else’s problem in a senior condo community like those found throughout Ontario (one style of many kinds of adult living communities).
Onsite features you will share in are many. Many of them are beyond what you’d ever expect in a retirement home. They can include onsite spa services, pubs and lounges, golf courses and many other wonderful surprises. Ontario senior condominium communities lead the way in pandering to and pampering well-deserving seniors.
Medical staff is onsite at many retirement villages or healthcare is conveniently situated nearby, should you need aid. Of course, Ontario is also home to excellent home care providers. Ontario senior condo communities welcome the hiring of these services to make your life as ideal as possible.
Steps in the process
When searching for a seniors’ condo, pick out the location you want first then worry about customizing the agreement to meet some of your needs. Here are some things to keep in mind as you look at a number of condos in the Ontario town or city you want to settle into:
Walk around the entire property and condo community to make sure it meets your standards of cleanliness and order.
Understand which property maintenance commitments are yours and which belong to the owner or community board.
For some condominium complexes, costs can rise after construction has completed and a community board takes control.
Read all documents and agreements very closely before signing. Have the documents reviewed by a lawyer or family member in the know, if you are unsure of all the fine print.
