Moving into some communities requires Large amounts of money paid up front and we don’t believe it has to be that way.
Making the Decision
People making the decision to move to a retirement community typically struggle with two very important questions.
- 1) Can I afford it?
- 2) Why would I want to leave the house I’ve lived in for so many years?
If you are like most people, you are concerned about outliving your money. You are also anxious over the unexpected and unpredictable costs that come with owning a house.
The Stratford offers solutions to both of those problems. Most people find living here is $500 – $1,500 per month less than their current house ($6,000 – $18,000 per year less). When you take into account the tax effects, that’s like being paid $8,200 – $25,000 per year to live at The Stratford.
The Stratford also offers a fixed cost. Each month you know what your monthly service fee will be and that’s all you pay. There are no fluctuating or extra charges.
Why would you want to leave your house? The opportunity to live independently the rest of your life and live a better lifestyle… that’s the reason why.
