4 Myths About Homes in Lifestyle Communities

09 2022 Myths 01

Once you’ve reached the next wonderful phase of life, you might be wondering what your next move should be. You might be considering building or buying a new home in an active adult lifestyle community in Charlotte, NC or Greensville, SC. But is it the right fit for you? Will you be able to maintain a new home or have enough storage?

NewStyle Communities is prepared to bust any myths you may have about these fun, friendly communities filled with quality built homes and plenty of amenities. Here are four to start!

The Homes Don’t Have Enough Storage

Right-sizing to a smaller home may seem counterintuitive if you have lots of things you don’t want to part with. But the joy of a “just right” home is that you have an easier space to maintain, with all the storage (maybe even more!) than you had before. At NewStyle Communities’, we know that many of our customers are seasoned homeowners, and they are likely transferring prized possessions to their new space. That’s why we offer home features like:

  • Large garages with space for shelving and storage systems
  • Generous kitchen cabinet space with room for all your dishes, utensils, cookware, serving trays, appliances, and holiday-themed dishware
  • 4-seasons room
  • Spacious walk-in closets in the owner’s bedroom
  • Private courtyards
  • All floor plans also come with a storage closet or an actual storage room(depending on floorplan)

They Are Not Affordable

With NewStyle Communities, there’s a home to meet every budget, and there are loan options to meet every financial need. If you have a home to sell, you can use your existing equity for a down payment on your new home, then opt for a reverse mortgage(exclude reverse mortgage and focus on HECM) , or Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM).* The HECM Mortgage lets you buy your dream home without having to worry about monthly mortgage payments.

In this case, mortgage payments would not be due until the loan matures, but you’ll still need to pay for property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and home maintenance monthly. Contact us to learn more about our NewStyle Communities preferred lenders learn about all your options.

*Certain qualifications and restrictions apply. Please consult a mortgage professional for more information.
