what do you consider very affordable? just curious.I'm in a 55+ community, which I like a lot. Big variety of homes, including apartments, town houses, and bigger, stand-alone houses. No need to cope with stairs if you don't want to. I'm in an apartment, and even though I can walk stairs perfectly well, I like not having to do it.
Prices vary a lot, but the smaller condos are very affordable.
What I mostly like about living here is all the activities. Of course, that's in normal times, not now. There's always something to do, and someone to talk with.
But I am in Maryland, and it sounds like you want to remain in Idaho. Not sure how many retirement communities there are out there, but I'm sure there are some.
