“How to create your own retirement community” is a question that is being asked by more retirees. Where Are You Going To Live When You Retire? I was fascinated to hear how 6 friends decided to create their own Co-Housing Retirement Community!
Where are you going to live when you retire? This is a very important question. The reality is that we are all aging, even if we are not as old as some other folks yet. We all need to deal with the question about where we will live when we are the age to retire, sooner or later.
A big factor about where you decide to live is really dependent on how much money you have saved during your working life. How much income do you have to support the type of lifestyle that you wish to have when you are retired? Many may wish to have a certain lifestyle, but many just cannot afford it. So they have to choose more economical living conditions.
Six friends, three couples, who got used to holidaying together conceived the idea of creating a Retirement Community together. This radical idea of living together in the future in the country in one dwelling was 10 years in the making.
Listen to how these friends sorted through all the obstacles to bring their idea to fruition. Now seven years after successfully integrating into the local community they would not change a thing.
