Stay or Go WHERE?
The question that I get most often is:
I've set out to find the best locations, Realtors and Property Managers in those areas!
I'm looking for areas that have:
- Affordable housing
- Moderate climates
- Large hospitals
- Close proximity to an airport
- Shopping, services and population
I will be researching, visiting and evaluating areas such as:
- Santa Rosa (see completed video >>>)
- Sacramento (surrounding areas)
- Central coast of California
Santa Rosa, California
Santa Rosa matches my search criteria and is a great place to relocate, invest or retire. Santa Rosa is the unbeaten path to all that’s well-known and yet still undiscovered about Northern California. Endless outdoor activities under pristine, sea-to-sky, Northern California sunshine. A handcrafted culture at the leading edge of everything from microbrews to maker fairs. The hub of American cycling, on road and off. A foodie paradise without the pretense. In the heart of wine country, but with an active urban subculture. Santa Rosa is a place for those whose cravings for adventure go beyond the conventional.
Rossmoor of Walnut Creek
Situated in Northern California’s beautiful community of Walnut Creek, Rossmoor offers a variety of home ownership options at a range of prices in an ideal environment for active adults 55+. Co-ops, condos, single-family homes and congregate living are spread out over 1,800 acres.
Forty percent of the homes are garden-style duplexes to four-plexes, and the remaining are either mid-to-high-rise, and one area of 63 individual single-family homes. Homes vary in price from low $200,000–plus for some cooperatives, from $400,000 to $800,000 for condos, to $1 million and up for single-family homes and garden style condominiums. At least one resident must be 55 years of age or older to live in a home in Rossmoor. The average age is 77.
The Villages Golf & CC in San Jose
The Villages Golf & Country Club, a 55+ leisure living community, is situated in the beautiful Evergreen foothills of San Jose, California. Established on the site of a former hillside vineyard and winery, the 2,309 condominiums and 227 single-family homes nestle into 1,200 acres of lush landscaping and sparkling lakes set against a picture-perfect background of natural beauty.
There are three basic home configurations, Condos, Villas, and Individual Homes. At this time, they range in price from low $200,000 to $900,000. The Condos are located in two story buildings containing 6 to 8 units. The Villas are single level buildings containing 2 to 3 units.
