Here are five of the most common reasons people say they like living in 55+ communities:
- Fun Social Activities
When you want to turn up the dial on your social life, adult communities offer nonstop activities. You can go to all of them, some of them or none of them. Unlike having a spouse who likes to plan your activities, you won’t get an argument from anyone if you don’t want to go to square dancing, duplicate bridge or art class.
- Beloved Amenities And Affiliations
Some adult communities are built around amenities like golf courses, tennis courts, fitness centers or a marina. Choose one that features the amenity you most enjoy and you’ll be surrounded by neighbors who share your passion.
The most secure 55+ communities are gated and have visitors check in with a guard. Some of the most well-known senior communities aren’t gated, but they’re safe compared to non-age restricted neighborhoods.
- Maintenance Free Living
Tired of trimming your plants, watering or mowing the lawn? Most 55+ communities have a homeowners association that takes care of maintenance for you. In a condominium, your exterior maintenance is likely included in your monthly condo fee. With someone else doing your chores, you have more time for all those activities.
- Rightsized, Right Style Homes
As we age, our chances of having a disability increase. While only about a quarter of those aged 45 to 64 have a disability, about half of those aged 65 and up do, CDC data show.
