If you love the idea of moving to an active, maintenance-free Erickson Senior Living community, but hesitate to commit, ask yourself: Why am I waiting?

Everyone has their own reasons: The thought of moving is overwhelming. There are too many memories in my house. What if I can’t make the transition? 

Instead of focusing on what’s holding you back, let’s explore the many reasons you should move forward.

Hot real estate market

The real estate market is on fire and shows no signs of slowing. Inventory is low, houses are selling quickly and, in many instances, well above asking price.

Forget the old rule about waiting till spring or summer to list; there are advantages to selling in every season. And with interest rates at historic lows, there are highly motivated buyers all year long.

The red-hot market was a huge motivator, as Kathleen and Robert Schaffer, residents at Greenspring, an Erickson Senior Living community, can attest.

“We had been on the fence about moving, but we knew it was a seller's market,” says Kathleen. “On the first day we listed, there were 30 cars around the block, and we got nine offers, most over asking price. If we had waited, we might have missed it.”

Help throughout the transition with senior moving services

Every Erickson Senior Living community has the resources to help you exit your current house and enter your new apartment home easily and in style. Erickson Realty and Moving Services can connect you with preferred real estate agents, downsizers, and movers who can handle as much of the process as you want.

Your personal moving consultant can show you what furnishings to bring and how to arrange them in your new space. Our in-house design teams can create the home of your dreams with custom window treatments, built-ins, upgraded flooring, and more.

Unparalleled senior living amenities

Dining venues, fitness, aquatics, walking paths, classes, clubs, hobby shops, and performances are among the amenities you’ll enjoy on campus. Pursue current hobbies, try new ones, and build an incredible social life with people who share your interests.

The Schaffers agree. “We wanted to make new friends and take full advantage of all the amenities while we were healthy enough to enjoy them,” says Kathleen.

She continues, “The transition was smooth, and we absolutely love living here.”

Active retirement communities

There’s plenty to keep you engaged and active. You’re surrounded by peers and a caring staff that is committed to your well-being. Everything you need is right on campus and can be delivered to your door. Why remain isolated in your house when you can be part of a vibrant community?

Physical and financial security

Your physical security is protected by a staff that monitors the gate and checks on residents morning and night. If anything is amiss, we send help immediately.

There’s also financial security. Our 90% refundable entrance deposit means that your legacy will be preserved for your family.

Once you’re approved for your apartment home, you have a home for life. No resident will be asked to leave due to a genuine inability to pay if they outlive their savings. And Erickson's excellent financial stewardship provides peace of mind about the company behind our communities.

Stop waiting and start living! Speak to the personal moving consultant or request more information at the community that interests you. We’ll help you take the next step toward an active, engaged, worry-free life.
