Hello,
My husband and I plan on relocating from NY in about 8-10 years and would like to find a home in an active retirement community in the Charlotte area. We are considering purchasing a new home now and possibly renting it out until we move down. I would think it would be easy to find renters, since there would be many people who would need to rent a home while their new home was being built.
Has anyone done this? Do retirement communities frown upon this. We were considering Del Webb Sun City in Fort Mill, SC which will be building new homes for the next 5 years or so.
Any input or advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Sun city is nice. My mom almost bought there but then decided to stay where she is but it looks really nice to me.

Before you purchase, definitely check if they allow rentals and on what time frame. My parents just bought at Carolina Lakes, and they are not allowed to rent it out for about a year or so.

There is a very nice active adult community in Fort Mill, SC, just across the state line in SC. The Four Seasons at Gold Hill. I believe they do allow rentals.
