When it comes to real estate, seniors are finally getting it

Willow Valley Communities to host Discovery Tour on July 11

Seniors finally understand what their grown children have been trying to tell them for years:
They don’t want their stuff.
The china, the dining room set, the storage containers filled with their old schoolwork … they don’t want any of it.
Many seniors are feeling the relief that comes from that realization. They are finally able to toss away so many things that have been taking up so much space in their homes — and in their minds. It’s a very freeing experience to let it go.
Seniors also now see that with the freedom of downsizing their possessions comes the freedom of downsizing their space. And they are now able to have experiences filling up their lives, rather than a large house full of possessions. They can revisit passions that they have had to put aside, or explore new ones that they have always been curious about.
Retirement for many seniors is a time when they can do whatever they want, whenever they want. And they don’t want to have a house full of stuff getting in their way.
Willow Valley Communities sees this too. Many of their new residents express the joy they feel moving into a smaller, maintenance-free apartment without so much clutter slowing them down. They are excited to begin this new stage of their lives. In fact, rather than saying “down-sizing,” many of these residents prefer the term “right-sizing.”
Retirees say they may be retired from paid work, but they are hardly retired from life. And that also feels “right.”
Willow Valley Communities sees many other retirees who can’t wait to get started. To inspire them in their right-sizing journey, they are offering a complimentary Discovery Tour of newly-styled model residences on Thursday, July 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. on their Lakes Campus.
The residences are freshly appointed with smart, multipurpose furniture and accessories. Willow Valley Communities’ knowledgeable sales counselors will also be on hand to answer all your questions and share tips and tricks they have learned from other residents about the right-sizing process. They can show you just how easy it can be.
The Discovery Tour will also include many of Willow Valley Communities’ award-winning amenities on their stunning 210-acre campus: their 80,000-square-foot Cultural Center with its 500-seat performing arts theater, Fitness and Aquatics Centers, Art Gallery, Day Spa, and Vitality Café. Also on the tour will be Willow Valley Communities’ 30,000-square-foot Clubhouse with its outdoor pool, tennis courts, golf simulator, bowling alley, and vintage arcade.
During their visit, guests will also learn about so much more available at Willow Valley Communities. There are hundreds of clubs, classes, lectures, presentations, and world-class entertainment. To satisfy every mood, and every palate, there are 11 culinary venues. And, it’s all included with the wise security of Willow Valley Communities’ Lifecare.
Seniors will quickly be able to see the multitude of fresh life possibilities awaiting them at Willow Valley Communities — after they clear decades of items out of their homes.
Find out more: Contact Willow Valley Communities today to reserve your space at their free Discovery Tour on Thursday, July 11, 1 to 3 p.m. It’s the perfect start to living a right-sized life of passion and experiences — not possessions and clutter.
