55 and Over Communities
Active adults, in the 55 plus age group, now have plenty of options to choose from as 55 and over communities are growing in number and demand. Whether you are looking for a villa, condominium or luxury home, the choices can seem overwhelming, but one thing is clear â€“ there is no shortage of 55 and over communities. Location is everything and depending on your needs and desires, your perfect home or condo may be situated along the shoreline of the coast high atop an exquisite ocean view, or nestled among the pines and backyard hiking trails.
An over 55 community generally has the restriction that at least one of the residents in the home or condo must be age 55 or older. This means that a couple must have at least one resident over the age of 55 in order to be eligible to live and take part in the community offerings. These communities may be neighborhoods that offer a complete smorgasbord of services and amenities, from nearby schools for children to shopping malls and manmade lakes. Some communities have stiffer restrictions than others and may eliminate the allowance of children in the residence, but some offer exclusions and allow school-aged children if one of the parents or grandparents are over the age of 55.
The demand for over 55 and better communities is growing, despite the recent upheaval in the economy. Most people have planned ahead for their retirement and look forward to moving into an active yet carefree environment, in which yard maintenance and plumbing issues can go by the wayside. After all, you have paid the price in getting here, now it is time to sit back and relax, or be as active as you want to be.
With so much variety to choose from, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact type of retirement home you wish to live in. The key is to plan ahead and do your research, scoping out the ideal locations and the type of home you want to retire in. If golfing is your activity of choice, be sure to position yourself on the green or at least a short walk from the driving range. The sky is the limit when it comes to choices, but the great thing about that, is that the decision is all yours.
