Explore real estate and homes for sale in 55 Plus communities

55+ Communities

55+ communities are popular among retirees looking for the perfect blend of top-notch real estate, world-class amenities, and all the benefits that come with an active lifestyle. They have the advantage of attracting like-minded people that enjoy activities such as golf, pickleball, and those that appeal to active adults. Many 55 communities are built near healthcare facilities, shopping centers, and popular area attractions for quick and convenient access. With low-maintenance homes and lawn maintenance often included in HOA fees, these active retirement communities allow you to spend more time doing activities that you enjoy.

Not all 55 and older communities have the same rules regarding age restrictions. Some allow a specific proportion of people under the age of 55 to live within their gates. So, if you have a spouse in a different age bracket, you can still qualify to live in a 55 plus community. Other 55 and older communities are their own private age-restricted “village” within a larger master-planned community.

Over 55 communities have a range of housing options including condominiums, townhomes, single-family homes, and more. Location is not limited to the typical retirement destinations in the Southeast. There are options in every region of the United States, from mountains and deserts, to lakes and coastal areas. Browse these 55+ active adult communities to find your perfect place to retire.
