At Age 65 U.S. Homeownership Peaks At 81.2%

Pool Day at SoliVita

Hi folks, I read an article that stated that………At Age 65 U.S. Homeownership Peaks At 81.2%

The analysis is based on 1998-2010 data culled from the University of Michigan’s Health and Retirement Study, sponsored by the National Institute on Aging.

I find it interesting that the rate declines to 77.7 percent by age 75, falling steadily thereafter to hit just 54 percent for 95-year-olds

READ THE ARTICLE

Then in another article I read……More than 2.3 million adult children are living with their parents in California, a 63 percent increase since the Great Recession began seven years ago and a phenomenon straining budgets and pushing some families to the brink of poverty, according to a study released Thursday.

READ THE ARTICLE

Now these two articles got me thinking…… I wonder how many adult children are living in SoliVita? One of the reasons my wife and I moved to SoliVita was to keep the kids out. Our kids that is 🙂 Of course if they were homeless we would do the right thing and……..rent them an apartment!!!

I’m just sayin’

What say you?

Florida Active Adult Community

SoliVita 55+ Active Adult Community

Being an active adult doesn’t mean sitting around playing Mahjong all day. Things have changed. Today’s active adults are getting fit. In fact did you know that aging is a choice? We can make a choice everyday when we wake up to rot a little more or get up and get busy with taking care of our bodies.


Florida’s Premiere Active Adult Comminuty, SoliVita, offers many amenities for today’s active adult. Softball, tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, golf, aerobics, yoga, Tai Chi, weight lifting, swimming, full cardio and much much more.


My wife and I moved into SoliVita in May of 2010. We were both 53 at the time and made a decision to start taking care of our bodies. As a lot of folks in our age bracket we had had way too much fun in our younger years and our bodies were starting to fall apart. My wife also had and has some serious health issues that needed to be dealt with. We had difficulties even getting out of bed in the mornings!!


Due to TLW’s health issues we were able to get an age exception and were allowed to purchase a home. We became a part of this awesome Florida Active Adult Community.


Living in SoliVita has truly changed our lives. Our living expenses are much lower than they were. We have both been using the gym and aquatic center at least 3 times a week and are in great shape.


It’s been almost 3 years now since we move into SoliVita. I have personally lost 35 lbs and 8 inches off my waist. TLW is in the best shape of her life after defeating melanoma and many other health issues. Both of us have been able to get off of all of our medications.


Being an Active Adult is life changing.


Things to do in SoliVita when you’re dead.


If you are ready for a lifestyle change we’d love to show you SoliVita. SoliVita New construction and SoliVita resales from low 100s to high 400s.


By the way, this is what the new Florida Active Adult looks like.

Burning down the house!

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Laid up today with a back problem. Since I work from my home I am spending the day on ActiveRain reading, learning, commenting and posting. Very enjoyable as usual. My wife the lovely lady that she is decided she would take over the cooking duties today and proceeded to make me my favorite “sloppy mac” for lunch. Well being the “wonderful” cook that she is she caught the kitchen on fire! Something to do with cooking pasta for 45 minutes on high while going outside to play with the dogs. After being alerted by the smoke detector I managed to roll myself out of bed and crawl to the fire extinguisher located in the kitchen mounted on the wall in the pantry. A few minutes later and the fire was put out and my house survived.

Fortunately for me at the beginning of the year I had done my annual review of safety equipment and insurances policies. My smoke detectors had been tested, the fire extinguisher was serviced, my homeowners insurance was reviewed and modified to reflect the new value of my house, all of my important documents were placed in a fire proof safe, the back up battery on the security system was checked and my will was updated.

While my wife is on her way to Subway to get my now long overdue lunch I think I will make my way back into the kitchen to get the “take out” menus out of the oven. I heard her mention something about making tuna casserole tomorrow and I don’t need her……Burning down the house!

Seven sure fire ways to fail in Real Estate

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

We always hear about ways to succeed in Real Estate. Well here's a short list of things to do that will ensure that you fail in Real Estate.

1. Take your children to your first listing appointment for their entertainment value.

2. Lose your cool and cuss out your Buyer or Seller.

3. Lose your cool and cuss out your Broker.

4. Call your 10am appointment at 10:15 to let them know you will be there at 11:00.

5. Run out of gas while showing properties.

6. Place your lock box and sign on the property next door.

7. Try to compete with Bryant Tutas of Tutas Towne Realty, Inc in Poinciana Fl. (Well maybe not this one, but thought I'd throw it in anyway)

So if you are not a success you may be doing one or more of these………
