Downsizing from a Five Bedroom House to a Luxury Apartment

My recently retired husband and I are thinking about selling our home. Our five children are all grown now and the two of us are living in this huge five bedroom house all by ourselves. Since we are approaching our senior years it is becoming more difficult for us to manage the upkeep of our house. We are seriously thinking about looking at luxury apartments in South Charlotte NC. By doing so we won’t have to worry about maintenance issues or lawn care. Then we’ll have all the time in the world to do the things we enjoy.

We want to start our search at one particular apartment community where several of our friends live. They love it there and their apartments are absolutely gorgeous. We’ve already seen the professionally landscaped grounds and the resident clubroom while attending a party hosted by one of our friends. We were very impressed with what we had already experienced so we decided to pay a visit to the leasing manager the next morning. We showed up unannounced with no appointment and were greeted very graciously by the manager. We explained our plans of selling our home and downsizing to an apartment in a safe and secure community. She was very eager to show us around and give us a tour of a vacant three bedroom apartment.

Like I said earlier, we were already a little familiar with our friends’ apartments but were still pleasantly surprised at how luxurious and modern they were. I absolutely loved the nine-foot ceilings and crown molding. This was probably the most spacious apartment I have ever been in. My husband loves to cook and fell in love with the kitchen. It had a six-burner gas stove, a kitchen island, and modern stainless steel appliances. After looking at the rest of the apartment, we were sold. This is where we were going to live after we sold our house.
