First Four Months Free Rent Offered at Otterbein North Shore

Presented by: GLENDA WARD

A Continuing Care Retirement Community

There are numerous signs the economic crisis challenging the United States is nearing an end. The National Association of Home Builders announced this week “the worst is over”, and “existing home sales have been steadily increasing”. Regardless, home sales rates are still below the acceptable range and, as a result, the U. S. government has recently introduced a series of stimulus programs to promote sales and get us to spring when forecasts suggest even better home sales news.

In conjunction with the government’s actions, the Otterbein Retirement Community in North Shore is rolling out an innovative stimulus package of its own. For a limited time, qualified individuals may take advantage of an incentive opportunity – first four months rent free, with a 12-month rental agreement. Act now this program expires April 2, 2010.

Maintenance of a home, health concerns and family issues indicate for many that now is the time to downsize or simplify. Some might be hesitant to list their home for sale; Some could anticipate difficulties in selling their home. The moving process can produce additional concerns. Otterbein’s stimulus plan and expert marketing team can help reduce those stresses.

Otterbein, a 97-year-old non-profit organization, maintains a long-standing history and remains financially stable. Otterbein is rated A-, investment grade, and is the 33rd largest senior living provider in the United States. There are approximately 4,640 not-for-profit providers of services to older adults in the U.S. Less than 1 percent are rated A- or higher by Standard and Poors or Fitch.

Further, as many service organizations retrench, Otterbein has continued to invest in upgraded facilities, new communities, and improvements in both the community environments and in the range of services provided.

People have the interest and desire to live here, and now is the time – regardless of the economy – and the new incentives make it possible for folks to act sooner than later.
