Budget Accommodations for Senior Travelers


Real Estate Matters with Tim Bro

Budget Accommodations for Senior Travelers
                                     
Perhaps your desire to travel is great, but your budget to tackle your bucket list is minimal. That’s ok. If you are willing to be a little less conventional in your approach to travel, you can still save money while getting a more authentic experience.

Some of the best options for seniors include:

Hostels – No, they aren’t just for backpacking 20-somethings who have left home to “find” themselves. Many overseas hostels are immaculate, loaded with amenities, offer private rooms with bathrooms. Learn more about www.Hostelworld.com and www.Hostels.com.

House sitting gigs – Homeowners often look for older, more mature individuals to do house sitting. This can be one way for seniors to travel on the cheap. Resources to learn more include www.TrustedHousesitters.com, www.Housecarers.com and www.HouseSitMatch.com.

House swapping – For people who own their own home and are willing to “swap” with someone in order to travel without incurring hotel and lodging fees, this may be a great option. Check our opportunities at www.HomeExchange.com and HomeBaseHolidays (www.Homebase-hols.com).

Adventures – Enjoy a full immersion experience in another culture through a variety of travel styles by booking through one of these sites geared to adventurous explorers: www.IntrepidTravel.com, www.Gadventures.com, www.Wildland.com and www.MythsandMountains.com.

Volunteer – One way to travel for free (or at very low cost) is to volunteer in your area(s) of expertise. Visit www.Idealist.org for thousands of opportunities in exotic locations. Imagine helping out in a wildlife sanctuary in Brazil, at an orphanage in Tanzania, for a community development program in Uganda or conservation programs in Costa Rica. All these and many more are listed on the site.

So, regardless of your budget, there is a way to go forth and see the world!

Tierrasanta Market Update


Real Estate Matters with Tim Bro

Tierrasanta Market Update


Recently we have seen a fairly quick and dramatic increase in prices in our Tierrasanta properties. So, what’s causing that?


Let’s see …
  • Ultra-low interest rates, it’s a great time for buyers to buy and lock in their low interest rates long term. Realization that rates are only going to increase.
  • Limited inventory in TS, Number of units on the market has been 8-14. That is well below our average. Hence, driving demand and multiple offers in many cases.
  • Opening of the new hospital nearby has pushed demand for our fabulous community.
