Senior Condos in BC
Discover exceptional senior condos in all BC's major cities
BC retirement communities offering the option of condominium ownership are a direct response to seniors' desire for improved freedom of choice and superb living accommodations.
These communities are usually eligible only for those 55 and older and can vary from one bedroom suites to large apartments where you can live in surprising luxury. Condo living relieves seniors of many home ownership issues that become tiresome with age. The list of things you will no longer have to worry about is lengthy. Say goodbye to home maintenance problems such as plumbing and electricity, as well as mowing the lawn and shoveling the driveway. Some condo communities even offer housekeeping and laundry services among other things. In addition, healthcare may be onsite or nearby, and condo communities have no problem with seniors wanting to hire in home health care services.
Luxuries onsite might be the most surprising and appealing aspect of life in a 55 plus condo community. BC senior condo communities (like those listed below) often include onsite sports facilities such as tennis courts and golf courses, driving ranges and putting greens. Spas and salons are part of some seniors' communities and why not? Seniors deserve pampering and these services are provided at surprisingly affordable rates.
Condo lease agreements and amenities are often customizable so it's best to start with the location you truly desire then work from there. As you are checking around into the senior condo options in your BC community be sure to check over the property thoroughly. Some other things to bear in mind are as follows:
- Condo costs can sometimes change after construction has completed so be sure to get fees in writing and read the fine print to make sure there are no surprises waiting for you. If needed, get a lawyer to look over the agreement.
- Consider carefully whether the condo community will be appealing for visiting relatives, especially children and grandchildren. Be sure to understand rules concerning visits by people who do not fit the description of 55 plus.
- Be sure you fully understand property tax obligations, utility costs, security deposit requirements and all other financial issues.
- Ask for as much help as possible from your children or anyone else you know with some legal wisdom.
