Have you thawed sufficiently from Winter’s deep freeze? Now is the time to find that perfect snow- bird or retirement spot. A weather related first quarter slowdown in real estate bounced back
when April housing starts jumped 13.2%. While interest rates remain low, after the buying season
has ended, go and get your new property. New reverse mortgage products that are only available for
people better than 62, reward you with better rates and terms the older you are. A variety of products
offer construction-permanent terms that may never require any more payments while allowing you
to take advantage of interest deductions to offset expected capital gains. Skyline Home Loans, a new
ideal-LIVING strategic vendor, offers and will help you select the best mortgage, whether it’s reverse,
traditional or home equity, to protect your assets and maximize your cash flow (see page 40). You can
meet them at one of the September Ideal Living Resort & Retirement Expos. This issue’s Best Places
to Retire feature offers some ideal communities to consider. Our comparison format makes it easy to
narrow your options and plan purchase visits.
Psychologist Abraham Maslow said, “Actualize.” Release survival habits holding you back and enjoy

you are looking for in a new resort or retirement home. Compare communities and find your “Ideal”
