Attractive New York Ranch-Style Rental Homes are Appealing to People not Interested in Buying Real Estate at Retirement Time

With home equity and retirement savings not being what they were a few years ago, buying a house, even a smaller one, and taking on a mortgage at retirement time is not feasible for many people.  Instead, renting a home when retirement comes is an appealing option.    Mill Landing, a small 55+ development on the outskirts of Rochester, New York, offers just such an option.   Here 92 attractive rental homes, each one half of a duplex, are spread across lovely green lawns sprinkled with new and mature trees.   All of the residences come in one style and are one size.   The community is very uniform and tidy, and all homes are low maintenance.



The halves of  each duplex are separated by a garage, and each residence has a red brick porch, white columns, vinyl siding and a shingle roof.   All of the homes have one story, 1,300 square feet, two bedrooms and two baths, and rents are $1,500 per month (plus utilities and cable) with a one year lease.   Included in the rent are snow shoveling, lawn care, landscaping and exterior maintenance.  Every unit comes with a great room with cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace, a screened porch, bay windows, a gourmet kitchen, a washer and dryer, a security alarm with an emergency response system, a remote garage door opener, air conditioning, a non-slip tile foyer and ample storage.   There are no other fees, and there are no property taxes to pay!  Call (585) 225-7923 or visit the website for more information.


Amenities are not overwhelming, but there is a lovely clubhouse with a gourmet kitchen and a great room with a large screen TV and a fireplace.  Residents also enjoy a fitness center and computer center (all included in the rent).  Generally speaking, though, Mill Landing does not offer the clubs, activities and facilities that many larger retirement communities have.  Retirees here sometimes have to make their own fun.  And no pets are allowed.

Rochester (population 200,000) is a diverse city and sometimes gets a bad rap, but many residents praise the quality of life and reasonable cost of living in their city.  Rochester does have a crime rate above the national average, but most crime seems to occur downtown, and Mill Landing is located on the northwestern edge of the city, far from downtown.     Within close proximity of the community there is an active senior center with 45 different programs, a historical society, a mall with a Penny's and a Macy's, a library and seventeen parks.  Part of Rochester borders Lake Ontario which provides opportunities for sailing, fishing, walking and meandering and more.  

Western New York winters are cold (with temperatures in the teens and 20s), and Rochester and the surrounding suburbs receive up to two feet of snow each month.  Summers are short and cool with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.  Humidity ranges from 60% to 80%.  The sun shines 162 days a year.  The water quality is below the national average, but the air quality well exceeds the national average.
