Retiring in New Jersey: Some Options
Those born 55 years ago, or before, have
several housing options that are not generally
available to the rest of the population. As a certified Senior Real Estate Specialist® (and
over 55, myself!), I am well versed in those housing options, in the real estate needs, and in
the lifestyle preferen
ces of this growing consumer group.
New Jersey is such a lovely state,
that many people are choosing to remain here, rather than move to warmer climes. As a
result, developers have created many housing complexes targeted specifically to those 55
years of a
ge, or older.
The 55+ developments (sometimes called “active adult”
communities) typically offer a mix of detached houses and multi
unit condos or
townhouses. They also include a variety of commun
ity services, such as a club house with
exercise room and party room, tennis courts, swimming pool, and golf course. For worry
free exterior maintenance and snow removal, as well as all of these community services
Local Service Providers
When you are buying or selling a home, there are always chores to be done. Sometimes,
you must rely on professionals. On this page, you’ll find the contact information for service

Many people along all parts of the home
owner spectrum choose to live in a condominium
mmunity, rather than in a single
family home. A condo may be an “apartment”
in a multi
unit building, a townhouse, or a detached home. What makes any of these a
condo is the management of the community.
Pros of Living in a Condo
Condos are usually “fee simple” properties.
This means that you can sell your condo, will it
to your heirs, or rent it to tenants (within the guidelines provided by the By
laws). It’s a
property investment that may appreciate in value. The mo
rtgage interest on a condo
purchase is tax deductible, to the extent provided by the IRS.
Someone else looks after keeping up the building and grounds.
In today’s insanely
pressured world, where two incomes are usually
needed to pay for the basics, that’s
important to young couples, who don’t spend enough time at home to look after a house.
It’s also important to seniors who’ve done as much home
upkeep work as they care to, and
time home buyers who aren’t yet re
ady to take on the full responsibility for a
condominium developments provide security
either through a
guarded gatehouse, or through a security office in a high
rise building. This matters to a lot
of people, in
an increasingly insecure world.
Condo developments often provide shared recreational facilities,
such as a “club house,” swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, and picnic area. This is a
terrific environment for parents of youn
g children, because the facilities are nearby and
relatively private, and for active teens and adults. Special party rooms are usually available
for rent, for special occasions.
Assigned parking and storage.
At least one parking space
and frequently one
is assigned to each unit in the condominium.
Everyone follows the same “rules.”
The “rules” of the condominium are spelled out in the
laws, to which everyone must adhere. Rather than being constraining, the by
laws ensure that e
veryone maintains the look and atmosphere of the development. They
also spell out how the shared facilities are to be used.
A retirement residence (also called a “continuing
care community”) usually offers ma
living options, ranging from completely independent living to round
clock care. Most
such residences are multi
unit buildings. Retirement residences run, round the clock, to
support the retirees lifestyle. In addition to dining rooms that offer vari
ed, nutritious meals,
the residences have extensive exercise, activity, and excursion programs that enrich your
life. A nursing staff supports the health care needs of the residents.
residences in this part of New Jersey are listed below,
with links to their websites. If you
are interested in exploring vacancies in any of these residences, please call the residence,
, to discuss selling your current home.
If you, or a family member, have reached the stage of life when more focused care is
important, then you may want to consider an assisted living environment (also called a
“nursing home”). Nutritious meals, round
clock care, and activi
ties appropriate to
residents’ abilities are provided by these homes.
Area assisted living homes include those listed below. Again, please call the home, directly,
