Investing in a retirement property is a serious decision that requires extensive research. It’s imperative to remember that this home will most likely be the last home you invest in and has to meet all your requirements, regardless of how big or small they might be. Ensure you avoid any pitfalls by taking the following into consideration:
Consider the proximity of medical facilities and services, retail centre, entertainment and transport networks. The last thing you want is to be stranded in the unfortunate case of an emergency.
Health is a very important factor to take into consideration, even if you are in tip top shape when investing. Your ideal retirement property or home should have frail care services, have a frail care unit on site as well as other healthcare facilities such as a clinic.
Entertainment and Hobbies
Elements such as stairs and the overall layout of a home needs to be considered and weighed up. Gentle gradients, uneven flooring, too many steps or a large garden that needs upkeep are factors to take into consideration. You want as little as possible future hassles.
Unfortunately, there are individuals who prey on the retired and elderly and will construct homes with inadequate facilities and below par structural standards. At Bateleur Estate, we are more than happy to share the background and details of who our developers are.
