Aug. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Senior apartments for senior citizens aged 55 and up are generally much more affordable than traditional rentals. However, many senior citizen communities do have income guidelines. Let’s take at all the factors to consider when renting a senior apartment.

Location – It is important to select a property that is located close to local bus stops and stores. Even if you drive now, consider the fact that you may need to give up driving an automobile at some point in the future. Being in a central location will allow you to easily visit shops with without a vehicle.

Amenities – Is there a laundry room? Swimming pool? Parking space? Does the community organize special events and activities for the residents? One of the great things about living in a senior apartment building is having a close network of peers. This can be very important if you live far away from family.

Safety- Is the neighborhood safe? Are there security guards patrolling the grounds at night? Is the complex gated? These are all questions to consider. Look up the crime statistics for the city on the internet. Many police departments post crime statistics on their local website.

Lifestyle – If you enjoy outdoors activities such as golf or tennis, look for a place that is located near local golf courses and tennis courts. If you enjoy gardening then look for an apartment with a balcony where you can perhaps plant your own flowers and plants. Consider your lifestyle when selecting in an apartment.

Price – You want to find a senior apartment that is well within your budget. However, you definitely don’t want to compromise on the fundamentals such as safety and location. Prices can vary a great; some communities are very affordable while others can be a lot pricier.
