The kids are long gone, you’re sick of shovelling snow, mowing the lawn, you’re tired of exhausting home maintenance and paying to heat and cool a large house. Why not downsize?
With downsizing however, comes hard decisions. Stay nearby or leave town? Condo or single-family home? Making the wrong move will cost you-and maybe you’ll have to relocate once again. According to a recent survey conducted by Merrill Lynch in entitled “Home in Retirement” the top four reasons for downsizing are: Lower monthly housing costs, larger home is too much work, fewer family members in the household, and want to free up cash from prior home.
Sixty is the new forty according to scientists who say longer, healthier lives mean people now hit middle-age later. Nowadays, retirees are enjoying active lifestyles and staying healthier, longer.
Need an easy way to stay active? Many retirees are flocking to a land-leased style of community living where owning a home in the right community is the perfect solution for active retirees who no longer want to be tied down by a mortgage and demanding and costly property maintenance.
Retirement lifestyle communities offer a variety of activities from low-impact aqua fitness to indoor swimming pools, well-maintained walking and biking paths, exercise rooms, tennis courts, golf, and much more. (more…)
Parkbridge Remains Leading Owner, Operator and Developer of Land Lease Communities with Continued National Growth and Expansion

At Parkbridge we love being able to talk to customers about the concept of land lease and how it can help individuals who are thinking about purchasing a Parkbridge home. Here are some common myths about the concept we think you might find interesting:
MYTH #1: Land Lease is too expensive.
MYTH BUSTED: Instead of having to finance a large mortgage for the home and the land your home sits on, you only finance the home. With a reasonable mortgage, you can use the money you will be saving for other things. After you’ve paid off the mortgage for your home, you will only have to pay for the land lease, which much more affordable than a high mortgage you will be paying for possibly the rest of your life. Purchasing a home in a leased land community enables you to own a home that you otherwise may not be able to afford.
