Renting Could be the Answer for Retired Downsizers

Renting Could be the Answer for Retired Downsizers

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 11, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCA recent survey has revealed that there has been a surge in inquiries about downsizing from retired homeowners.

According to the findings, over-65s say they will consider downsizing in the next five years with the need to save money the biggest reason for selling, followed by the desire for a more manageable home.

Other reasons included moving to a more suitable retirement area and boosting retirement income. However, the survey also revealed that three-quarters of estate agents believe there is a shortage of homes for retired people to move to.

There is a solution – and that is to rent. More retirees are choosing to downsize and rent because of the many benefits it can offer.

Over the past decade, we have seen growing interest in renting in retirement as it allows people to free up capital in their home, move to a smaller more manageable property and not have to pay when purchasing a home.

The main barrier to renting has always been short term tenancies that don’t provide long term security for people. This isn’t the case with apartment communities as it is in single or multi-family homes, so people have security of tenure.

Apartments are designed for independent living but with the added benefit of being part of a community and being able to get involved in social activities with neighbors.

There are many benefits of renting in retirement. Renters do not have to worry about any property upkeep or maintenance, as this managed by the management company. The right apartment communities are safe and offer amenities and beautiful grounds.

Financially it makes sense too. Renters can budget effectively every month.

How to Get and Give Hurricane Help

How to Get and Give Hurricane Help

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 03, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCNorth Carolina's long Atlantic coast has a history of weathering and withstanding hurricanes, but high winds and storm surge can do damage even inland when the conditions are right. After the storm, it is natural to want to help our neighbors. If you are a resident of our apartments in Raleigh, NC and want to give help, this is your guide.

A WRAL phone bank has raised $713,492 for Hurricane Florence relief. Thank you for your generosity.

Financial donations can still be made to any of our charitable partners: Red Cross, Salvation Army, NC Disaster Relief Fund and Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC.

Donations – by credit card, check or cash – are always the most efficient way to make sure that relief agencies on the scene of a crisis are able to purchase and distribute any necessary items.

The American Red Cross has 800 volunteers in locations throughout the state, and they’ve got 100 shelters open that are serving 10,000 people. Your Red Cross donations support those relief efforts.

The N.C. Disaster Relief Fund is currently accepting contributions for Hurricane Florence damage. Contributions are distributed by the United Way of North Carolina and directly help Hurricane Florence victims.

If you are unable to give online, you may mail your contribution to:

North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund
20312 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699

To contribute to the Salvation Army’s Florence disaster relief efforts, visit or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

The Salvation Army does not place an administrative fee on disaster donations. During emergency disasters, 100 percent of designated gifts are used to support specific relief efforts.

North Carolina Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund was activated Thursday to support recovery efforts related to Hurricane Florence in North Carolina.

When you want to help but don't know how, Durham-based NeedsList offers a real-time needs registry for humanitarian aid, where non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can list their supply, volunteer and cash needs in real time to share with supporters.

Ways Retirees can Profit from Downsizing

Ways Retirees can Profit from Downsizing

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 28, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCYour instinct may be to view downsizing your home in retirement as a necessary evil, but it may actually be an opportunity in disguise.

If you bought your house decades ago, you probably had a very different lifestyle than you do now. Paying for all that extra space can put an unnecessary strain on your retirement income. Why be saddled with the expense of a property that doesn't fit your needs anymore?

Downsizing, on the other hand, may improve your financial situation and help you avoid depleting your savings account in the long run. Preserving your wealth in retirement is one of the main reasons for downsizing, but there are other important benefits of downsizing to consider as well.

Downsizing your home for retirement

To be clear, downsizing in retirement doesn't mean moving into a senior-living center or long-term care facility. It's about finding a place that better suits your current needs as opposed to the needs you had 25 years ago. There are a lot of possibilities -- an apartment, condo or smaller house. Here are some other good reasons for downsizing:

Unlock equity in your home

Your home may be your biggest asset, but its value may be under-utilized if you're living in a house that is larger than you need. Selling your home is one way to unlock the equity you have built up and make it available for use.

Lower your utility bills

The larger your property, the larger your utility bills are likely to be. This is an ongoing expense you could reduce by downsizing.

Avoid health/safety emergencies

As people get older and start to have trouble getting around, their homes may pose risks to them in the form of steep stairs, slippery bathroom surfaces, etc. These risks are exacerbated if you live far away from emergency help. Moving to a property that is easier to navigate and closer to medical aid could help keep you safe.

Reduce property taxes

Property taxes are generally assessed as a percentage of the property's value. Move to a less expensive home and you can reduce this ongoing expense.

Save on routine travel

When you bought your house, you may have focused on how close it was to things like schools and your job. Once the kids leave home and you retire, a more convenient location would be one close to shopping and services you routinely need.

Cut down on repairs/maintenance

Any homeowner knows that property comes with regular needs for repairs and maintenance. Cut the size of your property and you can cut the number of bills. Switch from owning to renting and you can avoid most of these expenses altogether.

Pay for fewer services

It may be a lawn service, house-cleaning, or perhaps something else, but, if you are regularly paying for help keeping up with your property, this is another way you can save money by downsizing.

When is the right time to downsize?

Aside from the decision whether to downsize, another tough call is when to do it.

Many homeowners hold out for as long as possible and only make the move when forced into it by physical decline or financial distress. However, doing it earlier and on your own terms might help preserve your physical and financial health.

Financially, it is always best to look ahead and make decisions when they have the most chance to have a positive impact. A full-sized house can represent an unsustainable strain on your finances. If you pour a lot of your retirement savings into keeping up a home before you decide to sell out, there is no getting those savings back.

Conserving your assets in retirement is always an exercise in uncertainty because you don't know how long you will live or what expenses you will incur. So the best strategy is to look for ways to control spending before you are forced to. This allows you to remain constructively invested longer and make less drastic choices about your budget.

Therefore, a good time to first consider downsizing is when you are approaching retirement and trying to figure out if you have enough money to retire. When you are trying to work out your financial future on a retirement calculator, it helps to know if you can anticipate spending less on housing at some point in the future.

Downsizing does not have to mean losing the great memories you associate with living in your house. It just means preserving those memories through photographs and by sharing stories with friends and family, rather by than continuing to pay for space you no longer need.

In NC Millennials are Moving to Raleigh

In NC Millennials are Moving to Raleigh

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCRaleigh and Charlotte have both been included in a list of the top 25 cities where millennials — individuals currently aged 25-to 34-years-old — are moving, both ranking higher than New York City and Washington, D.C.

The data TIME collected shows that Raleigh — ranked 16th — experienced a 4.2 percent increase between 2010 and 2015 in the population of millennials, coming out to an increase of 677 individuals, while Charlotte — ranked 18th — experienced a 4 percent increase during the same time in this population, coming out to an increase of 1,372 individuals.

The majority of urban areas in the study experienced some level of increase during this time period, but some urban areas did experience some level of a decrease.

All the cities that experienced a decrease were relatively near an urban area that was experiencing a growth during the period, typically within in the same state or in a bordering state.

UNC Career Services' Undergraduate First Destination Report, which annually surveys May graduates, collects data from March of students' spring semester to the December after their graduation.

The most recent available survey data was on UNC's Class of 2016. Out of that class, 83 percent of the entering first-years were in-state students. After graduation, 58 percent of the class stayed in North Carolina. The next three regions were the Northeast at 8 percent, the Mid-Atlantic at 8 percent and the Southeast at 7 percent.

There are strong economies in both regions, and the cost of living is less than in northern cities for millennials.

The presence of the Research Triangle Park in and around Raleigh and the continuous growth in Charlotte represent appealing factors for millennials. The future for students holds many opportunities.

They are graduating in an area that is abundant with jobs, and if they wanted to stay in the area that they graduated in, they certainly could. The biggest takeaway is the healthy job market.

North Carolina: Millennials Are Moving Here

North Carolina: Millennials Are Moving Here

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCAccording to Pew Research Center estimates there are around 71 million millennials in America and they are expected to surpass the number of baby boomers in 2019. That makes millennials a coveted generation for cities looking to bolster their workforce and tax base. But millennials are notorious for their quixotic preferences and figuring out where they will head to next can be difficult. It’s a worthwhile undertaking though: where millennials decide to move has enormous impact on local markets, from the cost of a mortgage to whether or not you will be able to find a good avocado toast in your neighborhood.

SmartAsset used Census Bureau data to find out where are millennials moving. To track millennials’ mobility, we looked at immigration and emigration data from the U.S. Census Bureau for 217 cities. Check out our data and methodology below to see where we got our data and how we put it together to create our final rankings.

Key Finding

Big Apple no more – New York took the bottom spot on this list again. In particular residents seem to be leaving the city to venture into other states. In total around 69,200 residents moved to New York from out of state while nearly 95,000 left the Big Apple for another state.

The States Where Millennials Are Moving

7. North Carolina

The South makes up the rest of the states in our top 10. The no. 2 ranking state is Texas, with a net influx of nearly 34,000 millennials, followed by Virginia which gained 18,300 more millennials than it lost. Georgia, North Carolina and Florida round out the top 10. Georgia saw its population of millennials increase by 17,600, North Carolina saw a net influx of just under 10,000 millennials, while Florida received just under 7,200.

Raleigh is Among the Best Places to Live in the Nation

Raleigh is Among the Best Places to Live in the Nation

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 09, 2018

Abberly Grove Apartments, Raleigh, NCNC, SC cities among best places to live in the nation, US News reports

U.S. News and World Report has a new list of the 100 best places to live in the U.S., and Raleigh and Durham come in together at No. 13.

The Raleigh and Durham areas were No. 7 in 2017.

The new list rates North Carolina's Triangle above Charlotte.

Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill are known for their research/technology roots and collegiate rivalries and are luring nearly 80 new residents each day with strong job growth and a high quality of life.

Many people who call the Raleigh and Durham metro areas home are young, friendly, diverse and educated. They enjoy dining out in local restaurants — many of which have earned national accolades — and gathering over craft beers in one of the region's many microbreweries.

Raleigh-Durham also has a strong sense of community, and the people who live in the area are friendly. The green spaces surrounding the towns, family-friendly museums and growing art and music scenes make a strong case for the area.

U.S. News also ranked the Triangle the 17th best place to retire to in the country. Charlotte is the 22nd best.

Raleigh is one of the best state capitals to live in, study says. Here’s why.

The abundance of oak, pecan and magnolia trees help the region retain rural flavor, while the downtown skyline is representative of the state capital's role as a growing industrial hub.

The publication examined 125 of the largest U.S. metro areas to find the best places to live. U.S. News used the unemployment rate, average salary, median annual household income, cost of living, crime rates, migration data, quality of education and health care, commute times and more data to determine the ranking.

Good news, singles: Raleigh, Charlotte and Durham ranked among best metros for dating.
