The Woodlands offers two financial models to help make your independent living lifestyle possible, which allow us to offer the lowest entry fee possible, providing middle-income community members, such as our retired schoolteachers, police officers, healthcare workers, and small business owners, access to a local independent living lifestyle. No matter the option, each includes access to our full line of resident services.
Pricing for independent living apartments can be confusing. To help, here’s a breakdown of The Woodlands’ pricing models – rental and ownership – to help you better understand how your housing costs will factor into your monthly budget.
Monthly Rental Model
Our monthly rental fee is similar to a traditional rental in which you pay for your apartment on a recurring monthly basis alongside your Monthly Service & Upkeep Fee. This is the most flexible and financially feasible option for most and helps to preserve your hard-earned savings.

One-Time Rental Payment
If you anticipate living at The Woodlands for more than four years, have good financial savings, and are in good health, a One-Time Rental Payment may be a more financially beneficial rental option.
This option is similar to purchasing a traditional home, in which you pay the full rental cost of your apartment upfront. With this model, your only monthly payment to The Woodlands is for your Monthly Service & Upkeep Fee.
Your one-time rental fee can be refunded at a prorated rate over the first four (4) years of your rental and is non-refundable after four (4) years.
Please get in touch with us if you’re interested in learning more about this payment option.
