    Are they running the mostly for the winter season, or are they rented year round, or?

    IL.. it depends on the landlord. We rent for the season. We pay a flat fee to stay up to 7 months. Some rent by the month or just a few months (depending on what else they have going on). Obviously, most would rather rent to those that stay longer. I have not seen many in the retirement communities that rent year round but there probably are some.

    How much do you pay for a seven month stay?

    My other little problem with doing the two house thing is two neurotic senior cats who go ballistic at any mention of a car ride. It would mean hiring a petsitter or house sitter for several months.

    Oh, yikes. That is a problem.

    For our crew in past years I could have gotten by with one pet sitter visit every two days, so that would work out to around $50 per months. Our cats were eating dry food.

    Okay----"Mobile Home Communities"? Are they anything like a good old-fashion "Trailer Court"? I figure they offer the worst features of home ownership & renting, combined. The only thing worse is "owning", and having a HOA to contend with. Yup. 2022-07-22 (8).jpg2022-08-13.jpg

    little bobby... have you lived in a senior mobile home community? If not, "figuring" doesn't cut it.
