Payment for a home in The Pines is made through an Equity Plan arrangement. This plan has been designed for those who wish to convert some of their current assets into retirement housing. The payment made is equal to the current value or cost of the dwelling. When a resident vacates the home, Cortland Acres Association, Inc., as owner, will pay to the resident or his/her estate an equity refund based on a percentage of the initial payment.

Through this Equity Plan arrangement, a resident continues to have the security of one’s own place while enjoying the freedom from home care and maintenance chores.
