The Benefits of 55+ Active Adult Communities
Is your current neighborhood less friendly these days? Maybe some of your neighbors are empty-nesters and have moved away. If you’re in good health and looking for a new home, what are the advantages of a 55+ community?

Community living can offer you independence, comfort and safety. They usually feature smaller, low maintenance homes and attract adults with active lifestyles. Some residents are retired, while others are just easing into retirement, ready to explore the next stages of their lives.
Some seniors travel often to see their kids and grandkids, so they want a secure environment for their possessions when they’re away. Some are sending children to college and need to downsize to pay that college tuition. Others are looking for a community of like-minded seniors where they can participate in social activities, swim and enjoy a clubhouse including a billiards table, card table, full kitchen for entertaining and functions; as well as, an onsite gym with fitness equipment.

Many 55+ communities offer outstanding recreation options and are conveniently located near theater and historic districts, cultural events, and local shopping and dining. They can be a great way to enjoy city life without the hassles of mowing lawns and blowing snow.
If you are curious about the resale value of homes in 55+ communities, rest assured that the U.S. population is aging rapidly, creating a growing demand for affordable single-family homes for active, healthy seniors.
