Ditch the Stairs

The benefits of a 55+ Community

The kids are all grown up. The old house seems way too big, too quiet and just too much work. Making a change seems like the natural thing to do.

Well, you are not alone, the number of people 55 and better moving into active-adult communities has skyrocketed, and the trend will continue over the next decade.

55+ communities have been specifically designed for active adults. They offer a choice of single-family homes, condominiums or attached houses—each with many conveniences and upgrades.

You will have your choice of square footage and layout options, so you can count on the perfect amount of space for your new stage of life. There will be no stairs to climb, little or no yard maintenance to worry about or repairs to make.

Added to that are the amenities each community offers which often include a clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, golf course, and many chances to participate in clubs and activities, all within walking distance of your new home. And all contributing to a sense of community with your neighbors.

Most of the communities are situated near shopping, restaurants and medical facilities.
