55+ Community Overview – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

With more than seventy 55+ Active Adult Communities in Palm Beach County, Florida, deciding which 55+ community is right for you can be very confusing.  There is the good, the bad and the ugly.  Some communities are large (over 2,000 homes) and some communities are small (105 homes).  Some are older and some are newer.  The construction dates range from the 1970’s right on up to today.  Some have more amenities than others.  Some offer several activities and clubs.  The smaller communities tend to offer less. Some have café’s and some don’t.  The price range varies from the low $50’s to over 1 million dollars. Below is a chart showing statistics for a few of the more popular communities. It shows some of what most people want to know about any community.  By using any of the links at the bottom of this blog, you can get most of this information for over 40 55+  communities.

It goes without saying that most 55+ communities offer much more than what is shown above such as Billiards, Arts and Crafts, Card Rooms, Professional Shows, a social director, security, a multitude of clubs  and much more.  

Each community has its own flavor.  Some are easier to fit into than others.  The best way to find out which one is right for you is to use the services of a real estate agent that specializes in 55+ communities.  Candace and Joel (The Harelik Team) does just that.  They offer more than 30 years of real estate expertise and they enjoy showing people around the 55+ Active Adult corridor in Palm Beach County.  Check out their web site at www.TheHarelikTeam.com.  It details more than forty 55+ communities where you can see what’s for sale and get a brief description of each community.  There is also some very valuable real information.
