Is anybody aware of any apartments for seniors over the age of 55 or maybe here in the Raleigh it would be over age 62 (healthy working adults, not for those in need of assistance.) In the 3 other states I have lived in each town had a place for seniors where they would pay 30% of their earnings toward the monthly rental fee. I checked Rent.com and some over sites and tried a Google search, but could not find anything in Raleigh. Where would you suggest I try to find this information? Thank you for any suggestions.

Capital Towers on Six Forks Rd. and Glenwood Towers on Glenwood Ave. are "senior apartments", but I don't know a thing about their policies, rent, etc. There are probably others as well.

What about a small first floor condo? whistles and rocks on feet These days the mortgage would, depending on the down payment, be about equal to rent and there would never be any fears of rent increase.

I dont know much about it, but you might also check out Wakefield Manor which is off of Capital Blvd. Im not even sure if they are open yet (they should be very soon if they arent already).

If you prefer to be more downtown, check out Chavis Heights which is near Chavis Park off of MLK.

I don't know much about either one...but that might be a start for you. I do know that the management co for Wakefield Manor is CMC, and I think they have other senior communities around.

Try NCHousingsearch.org and Raleigh Housing Authority. Some of these places are for age 55, or 62 and older. Often the rent is based on a sliding scale depending on your income. Please let us know if you find something using these websites, or other websites. If I fortunate to find employment I'm going to consider one of these apartments. Most have a waiting list of a few short months to a year. I applied to one of them that looked very nice and it's brand new, but the waiting list is one year. I'm still going to complete the application once I receive it.

Silly me, my last reply was to my own thread. I just read the thread topic and thought I was responding to someone else's thread who had the same concerns. Since I posted this original thread I was able to find some resourses. Well, at least the information is there if someone needs it. Next time I'll be sure to read the complete thread. :-)

Default Apartment vs buy a Condo
