HOUSING COSTS ANALYSIS
Here is a costs analysis for you to consider as you approach retirement years. If your rent is $800.00 a month; you are paying $9,600 a year in rent. Let's say you stay there for 10 years with no rent increase; you will have paid a total of $96,000 over a 10 year period with nothing to show for it but rent receipts. By comparison, you can purchased and placed a tiny house in our village @ $48,000, with about $3500.00 and your monthly payment would be about $438.00 a month and would own your own home in 10 years. That's half the costs of paying rent or more for a traditional house payment. This savings would allow you to live a more stress free lifestyle and at the end of the day, you will have made a good investment that will pay it forward for many years to come for others. Contact us and explore the opportunities.
CAMPGROUND & GARDEN AREAS
Each lot has space to park your RV, as well as, a garden area for fruit, flowers, and vegetables. The village will also feature walking paths, fruit, flower and vegetable gardens, gazebos, water fountains, sitting benches, etc. for your enjoyment and recreation. You can also join us for harvest season in late October and early November. We look forward to sharing this space with our members and partners.
