Buying a second home is a fantastic retirement investment, especially when you consider the added benefits of choosing a Lowder New Home.
Buying a Lowder New Home with the confidence of a full-service Warranty Department and 24-hour Response Line makes for real peace of mind. In fact, all Lowder New Homes feature warranties for the roofing, flooring and siding that all exceed 20 years. Add to that the efficiency of Energy Star® appliances and other green elements like energy-efficient windows, doors and insulation, and you have a long-term investment you can live with—literally.
So many investments in life are things we can only hold on to and hope that one day they will simply be worth more than we paid for them. That is, of course, the most basic idea of any investment. But how many investments can you spend the weekend in, invite your best friends over to enjoy, or look forward to adding your own creative touch to—strictly for the sake of aesthetics.
An article for US News & World Report’s “Money” blog highlights the benefits of a second home in your retirement plan. Mark Patterson’s article, “5 Benefits of a Second Home in a Retirement Plan,” suggests that buying a second home within driving distance of your current home can offer the excitement of a weekend getaway.
A second home can be the cornerstone of a family legacy and therefore a long-term investment in quality time with family. This idea includes the benefit of making plans to move into your new home for official retirement. Such a move for retirement can be difficult and uncomfortable, but doesn’t have to be if the destination is a familiar one, and planned ahead of time—as in the case of moving into a new home.
If you’re considering long-term investments that will benefit you, your family and add more freedom to your lifestyle, we hope you’ll consider Lowder New Homes. It’s sure to be a decision you and your family will grow to love.
