Buying a retirement property in Florida can be a great decision - the choice of homes is enormous.
Buying a retirement property in Florida can be a great decision – but not everybody is eligible for a visa for full-time residency.
It is necessary to point out that non-US citizens cannot assume they will be permitted to live permanently in the USA. Owning a property in the USA does not give you the right to permanent residence.
The US government has rules and regulations that mean aliens can usually reside for 3 months without a visa and not more than 6 months per year without specific consent. It is most important that you should check with your local US Embassy to find how long you can stay.
If you intend to live in the USA for only 3 or 6 months each year it may well be worth buying a retirement home for active living. Otherwise you may be well advised to consider rental options only. That said, the choice of retirement homes is enormous.
Depending on your requirements you can select to buy or rent in retirement homes reserved for residents over a certain age (local rules vary) that offer a variety of social programs and activities, fine dining. housekeeping, beautifully landscaped surroundings, on-site manager, easy access to shopping, bus service, library, swimming pool, gymnasium, golf course, 24 hour emergency call system, medical facilities, chapel, games room, TV room computer kiosk, beauty/barber shop, guest suite, etc…
Depending where you choose there is a wide range of care and support schemes available:
