The Martini Theory—How to Decide your Retirement, When and Where!

There are so many choices when it comes to determining where you would like to live for your retirement years.  In the Carolina’s, we host retirement communities in the Mountains, Piedmonts, Coastal.  Then the choice is a home, condo, townhome?  Do you choose to live in a Master Planned Community, a Mainstreet neighborhood?  So many options, so much to choose from?  Well, we have a technique that we find that is very effective in assisting you in the decision process in selecting your retirement timing, area or destination and the actual home itself.  Coming “down the funnel” so to say is the basis of the Martini Theory. This visual aid of a Martini Glass with an olive at the bottom is the picture we want you to understand.  Let’s talk about what’s what in that martini glass, it consists of three major components, Area, Plantation (community) and the home itself.

They say that timing is the key to almost everything.  Well, it is no different when selecting the perfect time of you move into retirement.  It is just not the decision of moving, you also need to cover all the responsibilities of where you are moving from.  Your retirement from your job, finalizing all responsibilities in your “hometown” and preparing the move to the chosen destination.  Timing sets off the process which is known as the Martini Theory.

Once you have determined the timing, the largest part of the process is the bulk of the Martini glass.  Determining the location and area is the key to maximizing all resources you wish to have in the area in terms of medical services, entertainment, religious centers, shopping, transportation resources, lifestyle resources, like colleges and universities.  Another major consideration is local and state taxes. Also, consider the potential for you to have a “second career” if you wish to do so by retiring in a job market rich area.

So once you and your loved one has determined the location and timing, the next step in the process is to determine the Plantation or the community.  Match the community to your lifestyle and activity requirements and the locations to “must have” resources. 

Finally, retirement may mean a “fixed income” so having a budget is crucial. Master Planned Communities offer all the entertainment and resources you may want to have access to and there are hundreds of couples making the same life changing decisions as you, so you will have a lot in common with these residents as well.

The “Olive” at the bottom of the Martini Theory represents the actual real estate.  This is really the easiest part of the process of buying a home for retirement.  This is where we strongly encourage you to look at all the options in living standards.  You may be thinking about a single living structure, ie a lot/home package, but today, townhomes and condomiums are made with similar characteristics of a single family home.  Take a look at all your options during this process. 

Thousands and Thousands of retirees are looking for similar features like open floor plans, split floor plans, Master-suites away from guest rooms.  The kitchens are designed with gourmet appointments.  These elegant features are not just found in the single family home, both townhome and condos are reflecting these great features.

Lifestyles of the Lanai—Brunswick Forest Real Estate

One thing that many, if not all of the retirees discover about retiring in the Carolina’s is that lifestyle is a major contributor of How you will live. You are probably wondering what this means?  Retiring in the south gives you and your family many reasons to brag to your friends up north, but one of the main reasons Brunswick County is a top destination for retirement is the climate.   

You will discover as you explore real estate in Brunswick County, including the master planned community of Brunswick Forest that much of the outdoors and this favorable climate is brought into the design and function of the homes.  One popular feature of these southern architecturally influenced homes in the Lanai.  Many of the homes you will see in the popular community of Brunswick Forest will have the Lanai addition on the rear of the home as a focal point of the home design which will allow for this improved year round lifestyle of entertaining, dining and just relaxing.

The Lanai is best describe as an enclosed back porch area that will host open space, with the focal point being a gourmet kitchen.  This kitchen is everyone’s favorite feature, consisting of a mini refrigerator, sink, and stove top burners, grill and professional grade hood for ventilation.  The Lanai in these homes at Brunswick Forest are every weekend chef’s dream.  

The enclosed area can be utilized as mentioned year round.  The screens which run the entire height of the floor to the ceiling of this rear enclosed area have removable plexi-glass so you can use the kitchen and entertainment space in the winter (about 3-4 weeks is about the time that it may be too cold).  Many families add flat screen TV’s, sound systems and even hide-away bedding, so their guests can live the lifestyle for just the visit.  When you incorporate the Lanai in the homes at Brunswick Forest, you may hardly ever use the main kitchen in the home again!

Know Who and What Your Agent Represents

The North Carolina Real Estate Commission mandates that ALL licensed brokers disclose their “agency.”  What does this mean?  Each firm, including Carolina Plantations and all of its associates or “brokers” must disclose to you who they represent.  This is simply an interpretation of “keeping the best interests in mind” of the customer who has committed themselves to your firm and its goals that are specific for that client per the obligations.

Types of Agencies

  • Buyers Agent: Representation and the commitment to the “buyers” best interests are to be top priority.  “Duties to the Buyer” include loyalty, commitment, provide all material facts and use reasonable care and diligence for the decision process. 
  • Sellers Agent:  if you are selling you home, you will want to ensure that your agent has the same commitment to your goals, to sell your home, to provide the exceptional service and provide the most accurate information about your property. They must promote your best interests.
  • Dual Agent:  Meaning that the agent will do it best to represent both parties, acknowledge and disclose all information to both parties, so loyalty is to both the buyer and the seller.  This could be a situation where the firm holds the listing, and another agent in the firm represents you.  This still can work for both the seller and the buyer alike.

Real Estate AgentAll licensed brokers MUST disclose their agency relations prior to collecting information about your goals that may affect the condition of the purchase or the listing of the property.  It is imperative that you understand the commitment of your agent prior to exploring Brunswick County and all of its great real estate opportunities.

We at Carolina Plantations host both “buyers agents” and “sellers agents” in the transactions.  Many of you all looking to explore the many Master Planned Communities and Plantations will be teamed up with our expert buyers agents.  Please contact us at 910-755-7557 to learn more about buying and selling real estate in Brunswick County.

Home Owners Association Benefits

Retiring in the Carolina’s has so many advantages that will add to your retirement lifestyle.  There is a common advantage for you in that most all of the Master Planned Communities and Plantations have Home Owners Associations.   These associations that will provide many benefits and services that give you more freedom with your time.

Home Owners Associations are a governing entity that sets up many of the structures for the Master Planned Community and Plantations including:

  • Building and Restoration Guidelines
  • Governing Regulations for community
  • Activities and Amenity Management
  • Maintenance and community upkeep

Now, do not think that your Master Planned Community and Plantation H.O.A is an organization that will be monitoring every move you make in the neighborhood, this is not true!  It is instilled to provide consistency with the design of homes, community upkeep and consistency to operations and activities that actually help increase the value of the neighborhood, value of your home and ultimately adds value to your lifestyle.

Again, we would like to focus on the lifestyle aspect of this topic.  The Home Owners Association will set up most, if not all the activities in your community.   Typically, there  is an annual cost for this benefit and what it delivers.  The fees are broken up into monthly or quarterly payments.  Many retirees do insist on the active retirement lifestyles that Home Owners Association sponsor and endorse.  Such activities will include the Amenity Center, pool, exercise facilities and all associated activities, i.e. yoga, Zumba, cooking clubs, outdoor clubs, and overall the structure for you to focus on discovering new activities and to establish new and lasting friendships. 

When relocating to a new area or a new community from your “hometown,” many worry that they will have difficulty in discovering and meeting new friends.  This is not the case with resources like the Home Owners Association.  These associations are structured to allow you to meet, greet and learn at YOUR PACE, there is never any pressures from this resource to participate.  Typically, your Amenity Center will have a staff managing the activities. They will provide a list of activities and descriptions of all the activities you wish to join.  As we visit each community, Carolina Plantations makes a habit of visiting these resources so you can see firsthand all the benefits at each community.

When you are exploring Real Estate opportunities in Brunswick County with us, we will visit all of the resources in the Home Owners Associations.  This is going to be part of that “Martini Theory” we talk about in your decision in which Master Planned Community and Plantation you will choose to live in.

Contact us at 910-755-7557 to learn more about the benefits of our communities that have Home Owners Associations providing endless resources for your new Carolina lifestyle.
