Are you exploring possibilities for your retirement home, perhaps considering a community in the Triangle? Have you heard about the Active Adult neighborhoods and wondered if age-restricted living is the right choice for you?
Here are some big benefits of 55+ Active Adult communities.
They’re Fun & Social
One of the main goals of many age-restricted neighborhoods is to create a social community for their residents. Age restriction helps to make this easier, as many residents will be in similar stages of life (such as empty-nesters or retirees), while social activities and planned events help bring residents together in a fun setting.
There are Tons of Amenities
Another major goal of Active Adult communities is, as the name suggests, activity. And to make this activity happen, these communities typically offer a lot of amenities. Common amenities include things like clubhouses with fitness centers and/or game rooms, indoor or outdoor swimming pools, barbecue areas or firepits, and walking or biking paths.
Plus Many Activities
In the vein of trying to encourage residents to stay active, social, and healthy, many Active Adult communities have organized activities and events, as well as social clubs or interest groups. Many may offer planned outings and day trips, game nights, themed dinners, holiday parties, and more.
It’s Low-Maintenance Living
A big reason many retirees sell their homes and relocate is because their current homes are too large or too much work to maintain. Enter 55+ communities with included maintenance! For homeowners, that means less time spent fixing, mowing, shoveling, and painting, and more time enjoying an active and social lifestyle.
Locations are Usually Convenient
It’s all about the active, fun, and carefree lifestyle, right? So it’s really not too surprising that many 55+ communities are built around fun area attractions or destinations. You’ll often find them close to shopping and dining centers, entertainment venues, or even airports or other transportation hubs.
