If you’re looking for a place to settle down and enjoy your golden years after retiring, you might be tempted to ditch your mortgage and rent. Many retirees worry that a mortgage payment won’t be feasible once their 401ks and Social Security replace regular paychecks, but in fact, buying is actually much more affordable than renting! According to Forbes, it’s cheaper to purchase a home in all 100 major metropolitan markets than it is to rent! But affordability isn’t the only reason to consider purchasing a home to retire in. Continuing to own a home offers a wide variety of advantages to retirees, especially if you’re considering buying from LGI Homes. While we’ve established a reputation for helping first-time homebuyers’ dreams come true, our customers and communities are extremely diverse, and we offer the perfect deal and house for everyone. Check out these reasons our neighborhoods are perfect for retirees!
Affordable Prices – At LGI Homes, we strive to make homebuying affordable for everyone, and this includes retirees! We offer our buyers far more for far less than our competitors, and you can own your very own LGI Homes’ home for as little as $749 per month! And did we mention we offer a no money down financing option for qualified buyers?
A+ Amenities – We’re confident that you’ll find a million reasons to fall in love with our homes – primarily because we include over $10,000 in upgrades in every single house at no extra cost to buyers! If you’ve always dreamed of a house with custom cabinets, granite countertops, state-of-the-art appliances, raised six-panel doors and brushed nickel hardware and fixtures, now’s the time! And our amenities don’t stop when you reach your front door. We include countless community amenities for our residents to enjoy as well. Get in your morning cardio on our walking trails or stay in shape at the neighborhood pool. And when your grandkids come to visit, treat them to a picnic at the community park!
Diverse Layouts – Each of our neighborhoods offers buyers multiple floorplan options to choose from, including single-level options if you’re worried about navigating stairs. Our homes also feature rounded corners for added safety.
Temperate Climates – Retirees love our neighborhoods because they’re located in some of the most temperate areas of the country! In fact, Phoenix, Tampa and Orlando are three of the most popular cities for retirees in the nation – though retiring in Texas or Georgia is a treat too! Our locations allow you to enjoy mild winters with minimal chance of snow and ice – as well as their related hazards.
An Investment You Can Pass On – Some retirees are reluctant to purchase homes so late in life. However, it’s important to remember that our homes are investments that can stay in your family for generations to come! Unlike retirement communities, we have no age limits or regulations for our residents, meaning your family can move in at any time. If your children need a place to stay, or you want live-in assistance from your grandchildren, you’ll never have to ask for our permission before moving your loved ones into your home.
