Hello,

My parents have been living in Tucson for about 10 years and contrary to the trend of moving away from CA, they want to move To CA to be near the grandkids. One option is for us to sell our home and move to San Jose where we might be able to buy a house with in-law quarters where they could stay. But this would involve pulling our kids out of a good district that they're used to, so we hesitate to do this. Another option is to find a condominium/townhouse that caters to the elderly (not assisted living) in the San Jose to Sunnyvale areas. I'd appreciate any other ideas.

Thanks.

You didn't really post a question. I'll try anyway. Most school districts are decent in the S.J area. Cupertino, Sunnyvale, West San Jose districts would be best. But with good school districts, come extremely high home prices.

Don't know if you know, but a 3 bed home with in-law quarters in any of the area I listed will run you at least $900,000. A one bedroom condo in those areas will run at LEAST $300,000. Good luck in the bay area.

$900K is doable if we sold our current home and moved, but these were the areas I had in mind. The condo for $300K is about what we figured as well and they may be able to afford this.

Just considering the options. Thanks.

The question by the way is, can anyone provide me with helpful information about finding homes for the elderly in this area? I'm not talking about current market homes. I'm talking about special situations where homes my be sold at a reduced rate for elderly. Just a shot in the dark.

It's a retirement community in southeast San Jose. It abuts the hills. There's a golf course there and everything. I've always lived near it but never been inside because it's gated. The area has really grown in the past 15 years, but The Villages hasn't been impacted as it's closed off and situated where it could not be surrounded by more homes. That's all I can really say.

Actually I just remembered a retirement community in Gilroy. It's about 30 minutes south of San Jose. It is called Village Green. Here's the link to their website: Gilroy, California Senior Living Facility, Long Term Care

They don't have sales on their website, but if you go to mlslistings.com, then set the search parameters to Gilroy they will show up. Their are 2 on Bianca Way, and 2 on Rosette Way. They are all under $300,000. They look very nice.

In the areas I mentioned above, $300,000 will only get you a small one bedroom condo.

Wow, thanks for that. I'll check into it.
