How to finance the purchase and renovation a home in a senior community

If you are getting a loan to buy and don’t have available funds to make improvements, be sure to ask your lender for purchase renovation loans that allows you to finance putting in an upgraded kitchen, flooring, etc. on the home you are buying before you move in. You may of course pay for the home purchase and renovation all in cash, or use a reverse mortgage with up to 50% downpayment.

As newer senior buyers and homeowners begin updating their homes to make them aging-in-place friendly and perhaps more modern and comfortable, the options for future senior buyers will have better turn key choices. But for now, buyers will need to have a realistic expectation as far as the type and condition of homes that are available in the 55 and over communities in Oceanside, or for this matter, the entire San Diego County.
