What it doesn’t cost to live at PCSC

Article written by a PCSC resident at The Village At Summerville

We, who live at The Village at Summerville, are so glad we are not encumbered with some of the expenses we formerly had to face – especially in view of the country’s financial situation.

When I began to collect my information for filing taxes this year, I realized how much owning a house drains you financially. It is a good exercise to list all the expenses you incur owning and maintaining a house. Notice I said house. A home is what you make in a house and a home can be made any place you live.

Here is my list of a few savings. No county or city taxes, no house and flood insurance, no sewer, water and waste bills, no yard care or house maintenance bills, no heating and air contracts, no electrical and plumbing repairs, no cable or generalup keep bills.

My physician is available every Thursday and my prescriptions are delivered to me. Transportation is available for events away from the Village. I don’t have to cook if I don’t want to and my laundry could be done for me except that I live in a cottage and have a washer and dryer. As for groceries, I shop once a month and spend about $60.00. Did you know that when you live in a retirement community such as The Village, you receive an annual medical expense deduction? These are some of the things you never think about when you own your house. They reinforce, for me, the reason I live in a retirement community and by the way, take it from me the earlier you make the move the better it is for you.

I encourage you to consider your future – plan ahead. What will you do in your retirement years? Think about joining us at the Village. It’s a wonderful life!!!
