For retirees (and anyone else about to change their lifestyle), moving can be an overwhelming experience both physically and emotionally, but preparing yourself for your move - before you make your move - can make all the difference in the world. Usually in the case of seniors, pensioners, and retirees, downsizing is the key factor.
Once you've determined that you're ready, there are an abundance of options available to you.
Ideally, the perfect "retirement" home is one that provides for the inevitabilities of aging and accommodates changing needs. The closer the home matches your needs; the less chances are of a subsequent move.
Making the right choices can save you a substantial amount of money. Determine how much you have to spend and what your dollars will buy in areas which you are interested.

Next, you’ll need to decide what type of property would suit your lifestyle. Is it a apartment that requires little or no upkeep or a townhome that would still allow you to garden?
Short on maintenance and long on amenities, the condominium lifestyle has been a favourite of empty nesters and retires since its inception. Condominium apartments and townhomes are available in virtually every price range and neighbourhood. Some are family or age oriented, with many created as a retirement community. The focal point of some of these complexes is the clubhouse, where a variety of amenities including fitness facilities, games rooms, swimming pools, and more are available.
