Vermont often gets overlooked when seniors begin discussing new places to relocate to in New England. The New England region of the U.S. is remarkably popular among retirees thanks to its high quality of life, luxurious senior living apartments and condos, scenic beauty, access to the Atlantic Ocean and small, tight-knit communities. However, unlike nearby Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and New York, Vermont senior living apartments and condos are more reasonably priced.
Vermont shares borders with multiple New England states including New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts as well as the Canadian province of Quebec. Vermont is very secluded, representing the sixth smallest state by area and second smallest in terms of population. Only 600,000 residents call Vermont their home every year and therefore, there aren’t too many senior housing complexes to choose from.
The capital of Vermont, Montpelier has a population of less than 7,500 residents making it by far the least populated capital city in America. The trend continues with the rest of the communities in Vermont as Burlington, its largest, still only has 42,000 residents. Fittingly, if you really do not like big cities and demand senior apartments in small, tight-knit communities with almost no traffic and rush hour, Vermont is difficult to beat.
Vermont senior condos and housing complexes resemble the scenic ruggedness of the landscape. The Green Mountains run north-south through the small state, which separates Lake Champlain and the rest of a valley on one side, the Connecticut river and valley on the other. Vermont is heavily forested and agriculture dominates the economy.
In terms of weather, residents of Vermont senior housing residences experience short, warm and humid summers offset by longer winters that are cold and snowy. It definitely feels like your stereotypical New England community with no “big city entertainment”. Many of the businesses are locally owned and everyone seems to know each other.
Since the state is so small and unpopulated, the selection and variety of senior living facilities in Vermont is not nearly as good as in bigger states with larger cities. It does drive the prices up a bit, yet among all of the New England states, average monthly rental prices for Vermont senior living are not all that bad.
The average median for senior housing in Vermont is $2,700 per month, much cheaper than Massachusetts and New York. However, affordable entry-level type of senior living apartments in Vermont are sparsely available. There are very few, if any $1,000 to $1,500 per month units. Expect to at least pay $2,000 per month to retire and live in Vermont.
