After six months, you can use it to buy a condominium or a car, that is it must be a tangible asset.
I believe however that your age would allow you the $35,000 option.

Hi it has changed a few times before used to be $50 000 but when i joined was $10 000 with pension of $800 or more or $20 000 without and now it has changed again but you don't need to put $50 000 , its 10 or 20 . The fee is $1400 and now you pay $360 a year. Before to convert to condo , golf club shares what ever had to be approved, but never a car. If you read more into it and think its right for you then i can tell you how i did it and how easy it was

OK its normally better to buy a return as a single is near to the same price. if you get the srrv you never have to leave, never report first few months of the year to immigration no acr card as you have your own srrv card as well as the visa in your passport oh i did mine at 57 and had it almost 2 years now and it is easy but there are a few things you need to do in the right order. just be sure its what you want. oh yes the deposit stays in the bank as long as you want to keep the visa and the interest rate is very poor

well good luck you take care. i will say that if you plan to marry the maybe just extend your tourist visa and when married go for the 13a visa, yes it takes longer and red tape but cheaper and again you never have to leave

I have lived here continously for just on ten years. Prior to that I had a one year stay, during which time this house was built. I returned to UK as my elderly mother was ailing, and sadly passed away within six weeks of my return. I was back here eight months later.
I for one have never looked back. My Filipina wife lived in England with me for six years. We have been happily married for more than seventeen years. I get on well with my MIL and my large extended family. I can keep in contact with my younger sister via e-mail on a daily basis. It certainly beats letter writing and the two week delay in the post. My sister's eldest son has visited here.
I can truthfully say that the years with my wife, have been the happiest of my life.
To me this is Paradise, my spot in Eden.
