Let’s face it; with today’s economy, many people are waiting later and later in life to retire, and some are afraid that they never will be able to afford it. According to US News, the best way to expand your retirement nest egg is to move to a location where it is much cheaper to live. When you cut your cost of living, you suddenly find yourself able to live much better. For those who are interested in retirement planning and estate planning, this can be a very good way to live well on into your later years.
Elder Law News reveals that while citizens are living longer, they need to be assured that they will have a good quality of life as well. If you are considering retirement, or wanting to go ahead and make plans for your future, you will need a good retirement lawyer and real estate lawyer. Attorney Patricia Bloom-McDonald can handle all of your retirement planning and estate planning needs. Here are a few of the best places to retire inexpensively.
- Akron Ohio – The cost of living in Akron is considerably cheaper than in many United States cities. There are also many amenities that are offered at discount rates to senior citizens. For example, both the Akron Art Museum and the Akron Symphony Orchestra offer discounts for older citizens. There are several high-quality medical centers in the area, and rent is cheap…with a median of about six hundred and fifty dollars a month.
- Chattanooga, Tennessee – The views in Chattanooga alone are enough to make almost anyone envious of retirement here. Nestled between mountains, the town has the Tennessee River flowing straight through it, and many tourists attractions which can make it feel as though you are on vacation every day. The city’s zero-emission electric buses cost a mere 75 cents a day for senior citizens, and the median rent is only six hundred and forty dollars.
- Greenville, South Carolina – For active seniors who are always on the lookout for something to do or somewhere to go on a low budget, Greenville, South Carolina may just be the best retirement community for you. The city has a plethora of activities which are free to do, such as walking along the Liberty Bridge, or visiting the Greenville County Museum of Art. It is also free to ride the downtown trolleys! Monthly rent averages about six hundred and seventy dollars.
