100 Perry Street - Shared Home Ownership

others.  I fully expected to spend a fair bit of time in my own bedroom just because I'm used to "alone" time.  In fact, I'm way behind on my favourite TV shows because I'm not spending enough time in my room!

We moved in over a period of a few weeks in mid November.  Bringing four households together has been a challenge - as expected. 

The real surprise for me has been how comfortable this feels.  I can finally admit that, much as I knew this was the best option for me in the long run, I had serious anxiety about how it would feel to live with

Well, we've finally moved in and are relatively "settled".  We are four  women who have jointly purchased a house right in the heart of Port Perry.  Our intent is to "age in place".   All of us previously owned houses that we sold to buy into this home, freeing up some equity for things ike travel, helping our kids, financing future care needs, etc.  We still have a 25% ownership asset that can be sold when we move on.   Add in the benefits of companionship, worry free travel and safety and we're all pretty happy about our decision.
