Downsize your life; upsize your lifestyle

House For Sale


You might look around your home and think, there’s no perfect time to move to a retirement community. Downsizing, packing, getting your home ready to sell — good thing you’re retired, because that sounds like a full-time job in itself.

But making your move isn’t a full-time job when you have access to the right resources. And, there really is a perfect time to make your move — right now.

At Vantage Point, we’re here to help you at every step, from choosing the right floor plan to figuring out where your furniture goes. Our Move Coordinator helps you decide what possessions to keep, sell or give away, and what furniture will work best in your new layout. We’ll also recommend professionals who specialize in organizing, prioritizing and packing.

And we make sure you’ll feel welcome from your very first day at Vantage Point. Our resident hospitality committee invites you to meals, introduces you to fellow residents and helps you learn more about the various classes, clubs and other social opportunities on campus. You’ll also receive the Vantage House Lifestyle Package, a collection of tickets, gift cards and passes worth more than $2,000.

So when, exactly, is the best time to make your move? Surprisingly, real estate experts like Columbia Realtor Linda Odum say the winter months are the best months to sell your house. She says people looking for homes during these months are the serious shoppers — and savvy sellers know there’s often less competition around the holidays.

You can even move to Vantage Point before your home is sold. Our Financial Concierge provides services such as lines of credit and home loans.

What’re you waiting for? Call us at 1-800-899-7736 to learn more about our Financial Concierge and move coordinator services. You could be calling Vantage House home for your holidays!
