We have 55+ housing in the local area here and that is one option we are looking into. The big issue that I have is that if I am paying for it in either case building an equity position makes sense over perpetual rent. But I need to run all the numbers and look at risks, time frames, etc. to make a final decision. One thing about old people is that they have a tendency to die. If you are planning to buy a house for them to build up equity, better make sure the numbers still work okay if they die in 5 or 10 years and the house becomes vacant. Or if they get seriously ill and have to move into a nursing home.My mom was in a DelWebb 55+ community for several years. It was okay, but we really learned the meaning of "condo commando".
