The maximum time you may come to the States, if you are not seeking to work or own a business, is six months in any one year, so why
not buy a second home to get away from the miserable UK winter months?
As you may already be aware there are no visa categories for
retirees, no matter how much money you have.
Prices at the present time are the lowest they have been for years. Many builders and
banks, as well as private owners, are selling for 50% less than the selling price two or three years ago.
There are basically two types
Detached, semi-detached and town homes, all of which may well have gardens and even your own swimming pool but that
means expensive overheads, especially when you are not in occupation all the time.

Alternatively why not consider buying a condo where there will invariable be a swimming pool, gardens, external maintenance, etc.
and you all share these costs by way of a monthly charge.
This would be a much more economical way to go and there are some magnificent
condos for sale from say $150,000 ( £94,000 ). Just a thought, why not get three other friends together and jointly buy a holiday
home and spend three months of the year here and you will have your holiday home for 25% of the total cost?
