Just because the government thinks you are a senior at 55 doesn’t mean you really are one and you sure don’t have to live in a senior community. When I was 55 I had no interest in a such a community. After all, those places are just full of a lot of old people and I certainly wasn’t one of them. And another thing, most of us are still working when we are 55 and we have more in common with a neighbor who is also still working and understands about traffic and days off and weekends etc.
So where should we live when we are still young at heart and want all the advantages of Southern California. Quite often our choices are determined by the amount of money we have to spend on a home. The really nice thing about this part of the country is that we can all enjoy it and we can select a home that allows us live within our means. Sure it’s not quite as inexpensive as living in the middle of Iowa or Illinois, but you can’t beat the weather. I lost track of how many times my golf game got washed out on the weekend in Illinois or Connecticut or Pennsylvania.
For the past several years we have lived in two diferent lacations in Rancho Bernardo and one in Escondido. Each location fit our life style at the time. The move to Escondido came about because my mother came to live with us and we found the perfect home for that time period. Now we live in a senior community in Rancho Bernardo and it is absolutely terrific.
While we have homes listed in Poway and the non senior areas of Rancho Bernardo, I’d like to tell you a little about one very nice home that we have for sale in the senior communkity of Seven Oaks. It is not far from the Seven Oaks Senior Center and it is located on a quiet corner lot. In fact we had it checked for termites today and the inspector couldn’t find any. There are some nice pictures and other details on our website and in Realtor.com that you can check out. We think it’s priced well if you or a friend are interested.
